    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

    A few tips to start
    Dorothea_WebMD_Staff posted:
    • If you?d like to find which board went to which Exchange, then check out Find Your Exchange .
    • You can increase font size by pressing CTRL (or Apple Symbol) and the ?+?sign.
    • Clicking the Discussion Index link on the left sidebar will help you follow Discussions in a more linear fashion.
    • ?Bookmark this Exchange? at the upper right part of the page beneath the house icon, is a good way to find your favorite Exchanges. Once you do that, it will appear under ?My Exchanges? on the left navigation bar.
    • Finally, to watch or follow a discussion, click on ?Watch this Discussion,? found beneath each Discussion.

    WebMD Staff,
    Don't know if you noticed or even care, but you're losing us. I know you lose one you gain one and that change is good. But this board is no longer conducive to what we as pregos want to accomplish with posting. Its probably a permanent change and noone care what little oh me say, but I wouldnt say this decision was your best. This change has a bunch of us jumping ship. I hope there is someone on the staff reading our post for feedback.

    oh, i care what you have to say, because all the ladies on TTC after loss board is all complaining about it too! i am glad (and frustrated) that it is not just us! i am sorry that you have to deal with this on top of having the preggo worries and wonders...and just trying to get answers and opinions from other ladies who are as far along as you is greatly needed to help your wonder! I HATE THIS NEW WEBMD DESIGN...not user friendly at all!

    I do hope you the best for the rest of your pregnancy!

    No, we value each of you. It is a permanent change to the exchange set up. But you can let us know what we can do to help make it a better experience for you.

    Change the set up back to the way it was. I used to make time to come on every day but this is only the third time I have come on since the change and my first post. It is difficult to find discussions or "friends" on here. I doubt i will post again and probably won't come back once the baby is born.
    I realize that you want to improve things but this is definitely an instance of something that wasn't broken so you shouldn't have "fixed" it.
    Mathis24 replied to alisonfw's response:
    i can't even post, so I just gave up. I can do it when replying to someone but not start a discussion. It always says errors, I don't like this new one.
    Louise_WebMD_Staff replied to Mathis24's response:
    Can you tell me what errors you get and what browser/version?
    Mathis24 replied to Louise_WebMD_Staff's response:
    error 441 or 401, I am not sure what browser/version I have.
