    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

    This board seems painfully slow compared to when I was pregnant with DD1. Just curious if there are any other places on WebMD to connect with ladies who are due in October/November/December. Am I missing something??
    Me (30), DH (30), Fur Baby: Nugget(Shih-tzu/poodle, 1), Alexa (Lexi) Belle due 3/30/2011

    Nope, not missing anything. The boards I'm on are also super slow. Since Web MD got rid of the moderators, board activity has pretty much gone downhill.

    Its definitely way slower, which kind of sucks. When I had DD 4 years ago, there were pages and pages of new posts/replies every day... now there's close to nothing. Too bad... I've tried some of the other pregnancy sites that have discussion boards, but none of them seem to be as good/helpful as these ones used to be.

    When I first joined WebMD many years ago, there would be lots of posts and replies. I loved reading the pregnancy boards when I was pregnant both times but now everything is pretty dead.
    mrsmarkle replied to tlkittycat1968's response:
    Yup. First trimester I think it about as busy as it gets these days, but that is mostly questions about if they could be pregnant I find.
    How are your ladies' pregnancies going? I'm 29 weeks today and feeling so much better than I did with DD. Heartburn like crazy but I had that last time too. So happy that my sciatic isn't acting up yet... feeling tired but that's to be expected now that baby is growing so fast! Only about 2 more months to go! I can't wait!
