    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!

    Glad you enjoyed, Jen! We need a good laugh once in a while...even if it is at ourselves!

    Thanks for posting this article. While recognizing that these unusual and unexpected symptoms exist is helpful, what I really appreciate is learning more about the underlying causes of them.

    It's good to know I'm not alone. I thought I was going crazy when every moment of my day was filled with me having to find a spot alone to pollute the air! And I do mean pollute because it is foul smelling! This never happened with my first child so I'm quite relieved to know it's normal!
    Starting 6th week but we still haven't told anyone because of a couple of thinking we were only for things to fall apart. We are visiting (1st) our dr this week and hope things go well.
