11 chat threads later - A message from the Queen

For her 5000th post, a message from your Queen :dramaqueen: (for the day) on this, the day of her coronation, in the language you all love.

To all my PG.org mamas,

I once was a lowly commoner, who went by the name of Erin. Then DH and I decided to TTC. So, I tracked my EWCM and BBT to determine the day to DTD :lovebed: around the big O . For months we waited. AF came :witch: and went. I longed for my BFP but alas all I got was BFNs. Just as I was about to give up, I POAS at 19 DPO and there it was, our BFP!! DH, I cried! This HPT says we’re PG!

Being a FTM, I ran to the internet. I stumbled upon a collection of ladies on PG.org. I created a profile, uploaded a pic, and so I became Preggo_in_Tucson. FWIW, I never imagined I’d be chatting for so long and the thought never crossed my mind I’d be not so Preggo in 9 months. One by one, ladies joined me as they got their BFPs. Some were POAS crazy, some were nervous from previous M/Cs, others were confident BTDT mamas, still others were just plain scared. We came from all over the world but we had one thing in common, an EDD in October 2010.

For 9 months we chatted about our MS :puke2:, shared U/S pics, swapped BP measurements, and crossed the line into TMI territory one too many times. We ranted about MILs, SILs, DHs, DFs, and SOs (but mostly MILs). We mixed pee with cabbage juice to guess if we’d have a DS or a DD. The FTMs asked the BTDT moms at least 1 million questions.

As our bellies grew :preggo:, so did our excitement. OMG, our EDDs were just around the corner! One by one, our Pumpkin Seeds arrived! Yahoo Some of us had VBACs (even VBA2Cs!), others tried for HBACs, some delivered with OBs in L&D, and others with MWs at a BC. After all was said and done, all our babies arrived safely and boy were they cute! On Septeber 25th 2010, I became TiggersMommy when I WTTW’d my DD Teagan Tesla.

Together, we supported those who’d had a C/S and those who were feeling the pains of PPD :comfort:. We recovered and celebrated :party: together. We BF’d :bfing: (learning to NAK) and FF’d, together. We crossed that TMI line once again, and again, and again, together.

As the months went by, we watched our LOs grow, compared notes from our PEDs, shared POTWs, and even a few DITLOs. Some moms disappeared but many stayed. We have SAHMs, WAHMs, and FTWMs. Those that remain are a tight knit group. Though we may differ in so many ways, we share our experiences with R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Some believe in AP, others opt for CIO. Still, we offer support and encouragement when our LOs refuse to STTN.

IMO, this board is special. Sure, MomW can be a PITA :wedgie:, J/K (no, seriously, that witch beat me to my crowns :dry:). Though you may not be there for me IRL (except for abacaxi who’s just that lucky), you make me LMAO ROFL (and occasionally ROTFLMYAOSCOOMN :spit:) and I consider each and every one of you to be my friend (even if DH yells :WTF: every time he sees me on-line), KWIM?

I’m a better mom because of you. Through thick waistlines and thin patience, I hope we can stick together for years to come and watch our Pumpkin Seeds blossom.

Your Queen for the day,
TiggersMommy AKA Preggo_in_Tucson AKA Erin

Awwww. That was sweet!

I can't believe I ever boiled cabbage and then mixed my pee with the cabbage water. ROFL Though my cabbage test WAS right. lol

And what are you talking about. No body here would ever cross the TMI line. Never. :mrgreen:

Wait, what??? there's a TMI line?! Oops Blush Not only have I crossed it, I've stomped on it, jumped full force over it, I think I may have pole vaulted over it a time or two!

I expected balloons to fall from the sky or something. Nada. Not even a little confetti. What gives?

I didn't promise you balloons, I'm pretty sure I promised you poop or something along those lines to discourage you from beating me. Looks like Teagan took care of it for me...Thanks Teagan! Biggrin

Yay for FINALLY getting your crowns!!! I thought I'd long missed this moment.
Too bad there was poop instead of confetti.

I don't normally post on the chat threads since I can't keep up, but I had to read this one since you reached your crowns. Love the letter and congrats on reaching your crowns!!!
