    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!

    i figured i'm only a week away so i'd move up early. i'm 12 weeks today and i keep finding myself coming to these boards to see what's going on with people, finding out what's new. so how is everybody? how are the babies doing? anybody have any good ideas on how to find a good obgyn or midwife? i've moved since my last child and i have an idea on the hospital but no idea on how to pick anybody/ anything out. looking forward to talking to new people here. :)

    Welcome!
    I'd ask someone you work with, go to church with, interact with what they're recommendation is as a start. Then research that Doc and make an appointment. If you don't think it's a good match, go to another. But, if you haven't been in the first trimester, I'd suggest finding one soon so you can get everything checked out and have time to establish a good relationship before the baby gets here.
    Good luck!
