So I was just reading through the intro thread, and I noticed that everyone who posted already has at least one child. I thought that was interesting. Do we really not have any first time mommies here? Or are they just being shy?
I noticed that also. There's are also a lot of us this being our 3rd baby.
I wonder if new mommies are just using other websites? I have been on this site for many years, which is why I still use it, but membership and participation has declined hugely since I first joined
Kristin - Mom to 3 little boys and one baby girl
Yes I was here in 2007 when I first became pregnant with DD1. I started my new username for this baby. I too have noticed the great decline of membership
I'm sure us ladies will all become great friends tho. I think it will be nice to have so many ladies with 3+ children. We can help each other with all of our multiple children issues.
That being said, hope if there's any lurking new mommies out there, that you all feel welcome to chat with us!
I noticed it too. I think its sad that participation on this site is down. This is seriously one of the best and most supportive out there! I know there are some ideas floating around about how this site can be renewed so hopefully we'll see that come to fruition and see a new surge in membership.
I noticed with my last. My first was December 10 and all those ladies were very active and we still have a Facebook page that we keep up with each other. Then my July 12 board it was very quiet most of the time. We didn't even do a birth buddy. I thought is was because it was most people's 2-3 kid. I love this because for most part there's no drama on this forum.
