Visitors?

Are we getting more "visitors?" Why do they always say they're having multiples?

I was wondering the same thing.

I don't get it? Are you talking about fakers?? Ugh! There seems to be quite a few who hop on, say they are MoMs to be, then we never see them again. I know I needed lots of help, support, listening to, etc, etc, etc from everyone here during my pg. I love it now even, although I usually just lurk b/c it's quicker than responding to a lot and I don't have much time anymore. lol

Maybe it is just the idea of having multiples is so appealing. I always thought oh how cool it would be! But now when I we are actually having twins... (and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them) the idea doesn't seem so magical... more like oh crap - we are having twins!!

I must have missed the visitors! Thanks for doing the weeding out folks!!

I get your post now. I wasn't sure why you were posting it because we have only had the one "visitor" and that was the first for at least 6 months or so (I think). However, I see why you posted it now. I have to read other posts a little more frequently. Biggrin

Yes, as MoMs, we are freaks that attract some strangeness sometimes. Lol The admin here is really good about checking people out. I have even contacted them when I thought something was not quite "right" with someone (none of our current regular posters, I promise).

HAHA! Lord, I hope I'm not considered a "visitor." I have a clean background, I promise.

I just have been lurking on the multiples board until I was sure that both would make it past the first trimester. Now that I'm almost 16 weeks, I cant wait to get to know you gals better!

I'm not a regular...I'm hoping to become one though. Smile I finally stopped working, sooner than I wanted to, but oh well, I was starting to feel pain. So I'll have plenty of time to get better acquainted with you ladies. Smile

Yes it is odd. And sad. Since I have been on this has been the second instance that I am aware of. The other one really pulled on people's heart strings with her multiples and then "loss" --all of which was fabricated. I think anyone that would do that sort of thing must have some significant issues.

We know you are all for real! :bigarmhug: We do get some strange "visitors" on occasion though. Although, so do some of the other boards. It seems like the multiples and the loss boards get them a little more. I am not sure why, but yes...those people must have some serious issues to join a forum and post fake things. But, there are crazy people out there. That is why it is important to watch how much information you reveal online, but try not to get paranoid either, kwim?

Me, me, me! Perhaps bed rest is the perfect time to start making up crazy Internet stories.

Hi ladies. I lurk on here just about everyday, and until now I haven't responded to this thread but I feel I must. I'm not a current MoM (and I won't bore you with my bad experience), but I have responded to a couple of your threads and now realize that my replies may not have been wanted because I'm not a member of your group. If that's the case I apologize. I know you're all going through some pretty tough times in your life with more than one child either here or on the way. I only thought I could help with my personal experiences as I have probably had just as many if not more than most of the ladies here. I meant absolutely no harm.

Oopsie!!! I think you misunderstood....the issue has been folks that pretend to be pregnant with multiples when in fact, aren't even pregnant. They fabricate stories, even losses. I cannot speak for the entire group of course, but any true support/advice is always welcome! I am sorry if you took it the wrong way.

No, no, no! Sorry if it sounded that way! We were trying to make light of some crazies out there who make up stories for attention. It's quite pathetic, really. But when people do it they tend to make up stories about losses and multiples.

Ok sorry. I just didn't want to make anyone feel uncomfortable or anything. I couldn't imagine why anyone would want to make up being pregnant with more than one baby and DEFINITELY not a loss. Neither is anything fun and extremely stressful.

And how is your pregnancy progressing by the way? You were thinking there was a possibility of multiples, right? Any confirmation yet?

My pregnancy is progressing pretty good so far. I did have an ultrasound on Monday and there's only one in there (thank God cause I don't think I could handle 5 kids and a set of twins). My dr said my uterus is big for 6 weeks, measuring about 3 weeks ahead, but it's probably because I've had 8 previous pregnancies. Now I'm just hoping for a healthy 9 months.

a10derlady, no worries for you, just those fakers. Wink

and yes, the mult boards and loss boards and the large families board get a whole lot of fakers. Its kind of comical actually. Wink

You stop it! Biggrin :bigarmhug: As the pp stated, this was about people that pretend to be pregnant with multiples and post their fake stories here. We get it sometimes. You are always welcome to lurk and post on this board.

If only these people knew what it was really like to experience these things. Let them step into my footsteps for a while and see what it's like. They'd run and never look back! LOL! I'll have to post pics of my kids. They're sweet but a hand full and when they're all together, it's a huge party. lol

Here are some pics of my family. Enjoy!

The last pic I took of Isabella. She looks like she's looking at her hand. But she was born with congenital glaucoma and couldn't see. But it's so cute.

My husband, Alec, and me.

Me and my big boys, Aaron and Joshua.

My 3 youngest. The older boy with his eyes crossed is my adopted son, but he's just like the rest of them. Maurice, Elisa, and Garland
