    Default preg.org is like a ghost town

    Any lurkers that want to come out of the shadows? I've never seen these boards so slow

    I know... In all my years here I've never seen it so quiet. :/ No idea what's going on!

    So I'm lurking but only in the sense that I'm ttc and board hopping until I find a home. My EDD would be Januaray if this cycle is successful. There's a group of us board hopping but we've got stuck in December because there are no 2015 boards up yet. I asked the question about when they'll be added, but haven't received a response. I'm disappointed that those who are running these boards are in responsive - because us ttc'ers are probably the most active group!

    It's so disappointing that there are fewer and fewer here - I wonder if if has to do with all the options available out there? I like this forum for many reasons and am not really interested in finding another one...but what's the point if no one is here?!

    Good luck to both of you, I hope it picks up!

    I found I had a long time this year where I had trouble navigating the site. I couldn't access the main forum page and could only navigate through "new posts". I still have problems where I can't access a post or random pages of a post. Other people must have had similar problems because that is when it really became a ghost town.

    I agree that I'm not overly interested in finding a new forum so I've stayed but I can see people who want more going somewhere else. Most people here seem to be long term and there aren't that many new people.

    I miss the old preg.org where there were lots of people to talk to. This time around I joined both the April and May birth boards, and there's really only about 6 people between the 2 boards that ever post, and the posting is really sporadic. I have a great group of Feb 08 moms and Jan 2010 moms that I still keep in touch with many of them. I also used to participate in the Birthing Naturally board, but again no one is there anymore. I miss this site as a source of pregnancy support

    I 100% agree, although I must admit I did join a new site b\c I wanted more activity. There are at least 50 posts per day there . . . When I was due in March 2012, we had a great board. I think we only have 3-4 now (Although I adore those 3-4 )

    I think FaceBook killed pregnancy.org. Sad.

    Yes I must admit, I was initially checking in every day but nothing changed here... So I know only pop in every few days unless I think someone will post something.
