    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Find your due date buddies: February 2012, March 2012, April 2012 and May 2012.

    Take a peek inside the womb to see how your baby develops from week to week.


    Welcome mommies from 1st Trimester Community (BFP to 13weeks). Your final stop is the 3rd Trimester Community (28w to 40w). Yay!

    I am going to be jumping in here-particularly on Tuesday and Wednesdays.

    I have tended online community for 14 years and actually started on message boards 14 years ago with a set of trimester boards. I have worked at WebMD for three-ish years-mostly on diet, diabetes, parenting teens, but a sprinkling of boards and now exchanges across WebMD.

    Since I am new around here-can you share a bit about you to help me catch up?

    How about:

    Name/Name you go by on the board
    Due Date
    Pink/Blue/Yellow Team
    Anything you want to share about the rest of your family (partners/spouses/previous pregnancies/children in your family/furbabies)

    August 3, but with twins, they may be quite earlier than that!

    No team yet

    This is my first pregnancy, but I have two bengal kittens, October and Emeric (1.5 yr and 1 yr respectively).

    Due July 21, 2010
    I am on Blue Team! Tristan is on his way :)
    I'm 20 years old, and have been married for a little over 3 years now. This will be our first child, but our 2nd pregnancy. We have 2 dogs (Boxers) and 2 horses.
    I have been on these boards for quite a while now. I started out answering questions on "Could I be pregnant" and "OB/GYN Questions". Then I found my way to "TTC:JSO". After several months of TTC we took a break due to DH getting laid off. We conceived the 2nd month TAB.
    Feel free to ask anything :)

    I'm 29, DH is 27, (furbabies: Piper- 7, Marley, 5, Claude 10 months)
    We are 3/0 g/p and very excited that we just reached 22 weeks. 24 will be better though as I have high anxiety getting to term.

    7/12/10, though probably will be about a week early for a planned repeat c-section (assuming I don't go early because of PTL issues)

    Blue Team, he's named Maximillian Nathaniel (Max)

    I'm high-risk (39 years old with previous issues with high bp as well as a current diagnosis of short cervix), DH is 36, DSD 16 (and may not live to see 17 in a month =), and DS almost 3 (Dx with Systemic JIA). In the last 6 months we have not gone a single week without a doctor's appointment or ER trip for someone - life is interesting.
