Facebook?

Anyone want to connect on fb? If you want to add me, just pm me Smile I'd love to connect with ladies there and it's so easy to share baby pics after they come too!

Maybe we could set up a private page for our Feb. babes? I check FB a lot more then this board, unfortunately...

I went ahead and set up a private group on FB if anyone wants to join or is interested- it's Feb. 2014 mommas
You can also friend me to join.

Maybe I am just Facebook challenged but I can't find the group. Email? To find you?

I sent you a friend request Jenn, I can't find the group either! Is it a secret group? that would explain us not finding it, and would also be a good idea because otherwise everything we say in there will pop up on that spy feed thing that facebook put on the right hand side.

great idea though. I'm never on here. Always on facebook Smile And we can chat names there without making our kids and all our info searchable on google.

It's either a secret or closed group. Can't remember which I chose- but yes, I don't want everything showing up on the newsfeed;)

I think I'm one of the few adults under 40 who doesn't have a facebook account. I hope people will still stop in here from time to time at least until our babies are here because my last birth board really dwindled once an outside group started.

Oh man, I will admit I have lurked on other pregnancy forum sites because the drama is entertaining (kind of like getting my reality tv fix), but it makes me glad not to be part of that here. I do feel sorry for the poor souls who are looking honestly for support or answers on those sites and get ripped apart, like a gazelle wandering into a lion den :eek:

I'm on one other and it is much busier. There are definitely people that stir it up and need to grow up a bit. I've made a few friends there though, so that is awesome.
I actually joined there bcs they had a ttc with medical assistance board, and I found that helpful and it was nice to have that support with my fertility issues.

Oh yeah I know it is like entertainment.... sadly... But some times i wonder if some post are for real or fake... but then i know some people are just not that educated. Im no genius but somethings seem like common sense.. idk

Women canbe soo mean to each other it is awful in my opinion... I may have a strong one but i never mean to be down right hurtful. I will give an honest opinion and what not but i always try to be tactful.

I am so Glad you found the support you needed else where.
i remember when i first joined here it was a hoppin place to be but seems like it has slowed way down since about 3-4 months after i had Lilly. Thats ok tho since there seems to be more mature mothers around here.

At first I was really sad that our BB was so small, with Stetson there were probably 40+ members. And honestly, It got pretty catty at times. It sadly, still can even on FB. I actually love our little BB because I feel I've gotten to know most of you better and it's a lot more fun to be close to everyone instead of grumping all the time.

I do like the intimacy of a smaller group because it is easier to get to know and keep track of everyone's pregnancy. It kind of mirrors my real life where I tend to have a smaller group of close friends (probably why I've never had interest in FB). If this wasn't a public forum, I would be willing to share more personal details with you all, but I like to think too that maybe there is someone lurking out there who is too shy or busy to join who is benefitting from the info we share on here.

As a healthcare provider, I run into my share of people who seem to be very uninformed when it comes to their health and such. I try to remember that not everyone has been exposed to the same stuff as me, so what may seem like common sense is really new info for them. I'm the type of person that likes to be very informed and will search out answers, but I try not to judge others who come across as clueless and let it affect the way I treat them. I'm sure I seem clueless to other people about certain topics Smile
