    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

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    I'm really struggling right now. I think the fact that I've gone 5 weeks with very, very little sleep is catching up with me and causing a big decline in my mental state. So, while my babies are napping, I wanted to distract myself by finding some pictures of them to share. If anyone else has pictures they would like to share, I would love to see them.

    Here are my babies and I on Christmas Eve at the beach. Yes it was hot out. I look awful but at least my little girls are cute.

    Christmas Day-- so happy that Santa arrived:

    My sweet baby lay quietly watching her big sister open presents:

    You do NOT look aweful. You are Beautiful! And the sweet little ones are adorable.

    If you are getting little sleep, try napping when the babies do..

    Thank you for the pictures.

    I have a hard time trying to post pic's... I have to crop, resize, crop some more... it's like going to the dentist for me. lol... but I'll see what I can do...

    Thank you Bonnie!

    And yeah, they have to be small images to fit in the text box. On the hosting site I use, I am able to view my images as "small" and then copy that image location to this website.

    Thank you Kate_Te and Dem!

    I can't stand how I look right now. I have about 20 pounds I need to lose. That may not sound like much but it's a lot when you're 5'1". And I'm still hurting so I don't feel like there's much I can do about it yet. Not to mention I haven't bothered to put in my contacts and fix my hair and make-up since E arrived.... So yeah, I look like crap but thanks for the compliments.

    The weight will come off as soon as you start chasing both babes around. I hear you on the weight/height connection. I was 5'2" and am now 5'... What I lost in height, I seemed to have made up for in girth. But darn Girl... even without makeup, your hair done, contacts in... You is fine.. don't sell yourself short. (Oops pardon the pun, it wasn't intend, trying to make a point)
