    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Hi First Trimester Mommies,

    My name is Elizabeth and I will be hanging out with you on the weekends. I am a wife and mom to a daughter getting ready to start kindergarten. Yikes!!!

    Even though my First Trimester was six years ago, it seems like yesterday. It was filled with much excitement, many questions and lots of reading and researching!!!!

    I am enjoying reading your posts and if I can be of help I will chime in.

    I do have a questions for the frequent posting mommies-to-be. Can you fill me in on the abbreviations (DD, DH, etc and others not used often)? It will be fun to find out and also helpful to new moms on our community.

    Thanks,
    Elizabeth

    POAS= pee on a stick

    BFP= big fat positive

    BFN= big fat negative

    CD= cycle day
