    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,

    Take it easy by not lifting anything heavy and napping any time you can when you're tired. Trust me when I say that sleep is luxury you lose when your baby is born. Eat healthily, treat yourself when you can and just generally try to maintain a happy state of mind.
    It's hard not to worry about the unknown, but I hope that knowing you have mothers on these boards ready to answer your questions will keep you relaxed and calm!
