December 2009 is my pre.org anniversary. I had lost my Grandad (and it was his birthday today) in October that year and we had moved back closer to family not long after. I told hubby on our wedding anniversary ( December 29) I wanted to start ttc. I started searching the internet for information on charting and getting pregnant. I found a birth board and started posting and now the ladies on my board are like friends or family. This site has been an amazing support from ttc to raising my little man and everything in between.
As soon as I discovered I was pregnant I scoured the WWW and found preg. org (luckily!). I have stayed because one day I do hope to have another LO and experiencing the whole pregnancy with other women to me, was amazing. Any questions I had, there was always someone who could answer for me. When DD was in hospital after her birth, the support I got from the ladies was so heart warming. I don't know, it just feels like a little family and you don't have to be pregnant to enjoy this wonderful community.
I joined pg.org in May 2008. My first pregnancy was very unexpected, unplanned, and truth be told, unwanted at first. I was engaged and my fiance and I were looking forward to enjoying those first newlywed years together. I came across pg.org through a google search, and posted something in regards to my freaked out status about that pregnancy. Right away, I received responses from ladies who had been there/done that and assured me everything would be ok. And of course, they were right. Our daughter has been the absolute delight of our lives and we are now expecting our 2nd. Pg.org has been a vital part of my support system since I joined the Jan. 09 board. I consider many of those women to be true friends, though we've never met.
My preg.org anniversary is September, 2007. I joined when we were first thinking of conceiving our first child. I googled "conceiving and pregnancy" and that sent me here. I think my very first post was on the "thinking of conceiving" board! When I did conceive my first in July of 2008, I joined my BB April '09 and the ladies on there have been a wonderful support for the past three years. I am now newly pregnant with my second and I am looking forward to getting to know a new group of ladies in May '12. The BBs are an invaluable source of support!
I had been aching for a little one, and without DH knowing I started tracking cycles and "planning" LOL! I found the ORG after trying out a few other places (which were awful). I remember lurking on the FEB 08 board PRAYING it would be mine... but I had to wait a few more months, and landed in July 08..where I made AMAZING friendships that have lasted thus far! I was also honored to be part of Nov 09...where I did not get to stay, but STILL, again, have amazing friends from there. And my final home, July 10!!!
The ORG has been my everything for 4 years... this is the place I go for comfort, for laughs, for support. Without it, I am not sure I would be who I am today!!!
I joined the org shortly after my husband left for his second deployment to Iraq. We were hoping to conceive before he deployed but that did not work in our favor. He was gone from December 2007-Feburary 2009 and the org kept me going. I needed the support of these women to get me through my lonely days. They helped me obsess and dream and keep hope that pregnancy and my husband's return was on my horizon! Then we conceived our son upon his return from that deployment and then these girls walked me through him leaving for his third deployment. He deployed for his third and final time, leaving me and our 5 month old son behind to wait.. He came home to visit us for his mid-tour break and we got pregnant with our daughter! I have cried with these girls, laughed with this girls and disagreed with them, but most of all, I have formed 'mom' bonds that are stronger than those of my IRL friends!

My pregnancy.org anniversary is October 2009. After two very early m/c's over the past year, we were TTC again, and--extra nervous now--I was hunting for any and all information and support I could find about TTC after a miscarriage. I found the preg.org forums, and never looked back. And it turned out I got my BFP that very month and was able to move very quickly to the June 2010 birth board, and Birthing Naturally board soon after that--the rest is history! I have even made IRL friends on preg.org. It's a resource that has sustained me through one of the biggest changes in life, and I don't know what I would have done without it!
I also found this site through Google, while I was getting ready to start TTC. I hung out on the Thinking of Conceiving board for a bit but quickly made TTC: Just Let It Happen my home. We started TTC in Dec 07 and this site was a godsend through that, as well as through my first BFP, and the miscarriage that followed weeks later. The ladies from my DS's birth boards have been amazingly supportive and I feel like we've been great friends for ages, despite the fact that I've never met any of them in person We are now TTC #3 and I'm so thankful that I have other women to obsess with over symptoms and charts while we wait for our BFPs!
With all my boys I had friends who were TTC at the same time we were. When we decided to start trying for our last LO (hopefully a girl hence the username) I didn't know anyone and decided to look online for new friends who were going through and experiencing similar things. That is when I found Pregnacy.org. And I can truly say I have been addicted ever since. An amazing group of ladies with the ability to share and sympathize, but at the same time tell me to get over it when I truly need it .
