    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!

    Hello All!

    I am moving up from 1st tri today!

    Just a little about myself - I was actually on the boards last year at this time too. (TRIGS) We found out at our big U/S that LO had a condition known as Anencephaly - a severe nueral tube defect that causes the brain and skull to not develope correctly. He was born in August and lived for 3 days. I found out that I was pregnant again in Februrary, just after Valentines day. I know what a great support that these boards can be during a healthy or complicated pregnancy, so I had to get back in again!

    My EDD is 10/23 and although DH and I haven't really allowed ourselves to get excited yet (after a mc and an unhealthy pregnancy), my big U/S is about a month away and that should help us clear our minds and gear up for baby!!

    I've been lurking on the first tri boards even after I came to second tri, and have been seeing your QOTD posts and love them! I think they are a great idea and applaud your energy and enthusiasm. I hope you continue them here!

    FloralMom - I definitely want you to continue your QOTDs, if you have the time and energy!!!!!!!! They were great! :)

    Although this board is not slow at all, you bring up many great points, especially for clueless first time moms like me!
