Can I just say... (XP June, 2013)

I've been on PO for many, many years.. my post count says I'm slightly addicted. :oops: Despite taking a couple year hiatus from the site, it was a ridiculous warm welcome back from some regulars, a bunch of new friends and of course, the one and only MissyJ.

I have seen things occur on PO that no one should.. and some things occur on here that EVERYONE should! What I'm saying is that I'm proud to call PO my online home as my adulthood unfolds before me every day. I love being a mom! Biggrin

That said.. I have to say that many of you who who share this May, 2013 BB with me have impacted me since my rejoin a few months ago. I can't thank you from the bottom of my heart for your honesty.. your compassion.. your private messages.. support and yes, friendship.

I'm so ridiculously proud of you all who fight tooth and nail for your beans.. as a I once told my daughter when she asked who I would love me once the baby came, a heart knows no boundaries. It knows no cap in affection.. no limit in admiration and no top in expression.

It is truly an honor to "know" you all as well or little as I do.. and I couldn't think of a better group of chikas to go through this pregnancy with. Smile Thank you for being you - the REAL you.. the HONEST you.. the GENUINE you! With so many fakes and frauds out there, it's refreshing to see happiness in it's raw form!

And now back to your regularly scheduled programming. ROFL

Awwww...thanks for not being a fraud either Wink I love it here too. I wish it was as busy as it used to be, but I love the family feel to it. The other sites are so big you don't really get to know anyone. I have a very close group I still talk to from my Nov 09 board and they are some of my closest and dearest friends!

Aaawww... did you forget you're dealing with hormonal messes here?
I've been around p.org for quite a while too (no where near as many messages as you! Smile ) but I also saw my fair share of drama, fake people and unnecessary stuff - so it is very refreshing to see a small but warm and fuzzy group of ladies! Still super close with my ladies from April 06 and now our 'babies' are 6 years old! Imagine us getting to that point?!?! Trying to get through the next 4 weeks right now Smile

NIDIA - I know, right? June is like.. HUMONGO!!!!! WOW! lol.. I'm so super excited for all of them! Biggrin

YAELI - :shock: Day by day here, sister! Lol.. I was day dreaming today about the milestones we'll all tell each other about.. I look at April and think about how I am where they were just a few weeks ago! It will really hit me when the first April baby is born. OMGOSH!

I love being able to lurk and offering my opinions on body aches/pains. I'm so paranoid, I am not scared to call up the doc or go in to get something checked out. Being able to offer people some advice and most times, letting them know they're all normal and doing okay really makes me feel good. I guess that's why I lurk on May and June so much.

:jawdrop: Noooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!! How did all that come out?!?!?!

I do remember one girl who would pull pics off the net of homes, cars etc and claim them to be hers... How can you recover from such lies???? I can't image lying in the first place.. makes me angry thinking about it. :x

Something happened after she "died"... She had requested that money be donated in her name to a specific charity.... I think she had some sort of phony online obituary... They were able to see where she had logged in and tried to post a practice run of the obit or something before her "death" supposedly took place. And I forget all the events that transpired after that, but I do remember that she had been active on another mommy website too. She always went to this website and the other website from different locations, always different IP addresses, except for ONE time, she screwed up and visited both from the same IP, so they were able to link her doing it here AND there. And it was just SCANDAL. Sooo many people were hurt and angry, some had even donated money in her name. They worried for her children who lost their mother to a horrible disease (I think ovarian cancer). They were able to find out who she really was and posted some pictures of her, alive and well with her real children. Just crazy. She invested YEARS into those lies... For what?!?! No idea...

When I find out people do that, it makes me so mad! Plus I feel very naive. I'd never do that, so I expect other people to not do that as well. People are so weird.

Yeah, I don't see the point in getting on here to post lies. I've seen a few pretty atrocious ones other than the one I mentioned (by far the worst). There have been a couple that I've seen fake pregnancy losses (I feel sorta bad for those ones, like they have to have to be in a really poor emotional state to make up lies about that, ya know?). They used stolen pictures from photobucket for their BFP pics. Just craziness.

This post started because there was an obvious fake in June.. and it pissed me off that someone, in the midst of a bunch of genuine women, here's this tool coming in and contradicting him/herself in two different posts. Angered me..

Whaaaat? Adriana, good for you for catching it! I had a "friend" in high school that told me she was cured from 4 different kinds of cancer and AIDS. I was like ...umm... okay. Then she told me that her and her boyfriend (apparently a famous basketball player) were gonna have a test tube baby and it was growing at that point at Duke University. I was like, okay..we aren't friend's anymore.
