    Unhappy Am I being masochistic?

    I still keep tabs on the September'13 birthboard because that was the very first one I joined. And I love to see the belly photos and hear how the ladies are doing.... but now they're at the point where the babies are moving and they're finding out gender and all the cool stuff like that which I've never experienced.

    Am I being masochistic to lurk there? It's affecting me especially badly these last few days because my friend just told me she's due in September and I totally didn't expect them to be having a 2nd yet.... But I just can't seem to stay away from the birthboard

    If you are, then I am sure we are all guilty of the same thing......

    I stopped joining and started only lurking on birth boards after my 2nd m/c, but I still could probably name atleast 1 child I know (either IRL or through a friend on here) that is about the same age as the child I should have had......it does get easier, but at the same time it can bring sadness.

    So what I guess I am saying is, you are perfectly normal to be doing that!

    I am always on my old board (May 2013). For a while it was especially hard... Hopefully it'll be a bit easier now. But they are all getting ready to have their babies so I stalked but it was hard for me to say anything because I was so jealous and sad. But I think it's normal and I think it's a good support. I know that they ladies on May are definitely some of my 'friends'.

    You're not the only one. I'm still lurking on the April '13 board, they're all having their babies now, or are in their last couple of weeks. My EDD would have been next Thursday the 18th.

    Oh no. I'm so sorry Jessica!

    I do the same thing on Oct 13. They are all crossing to their second trimester now. I would have been in my second trimester yesterday. It was my goal when I first got my pos test. Just make it to April 9th, then you will be safe. Now it's here, but it doesn't matter anymore

    I stalked my March '10 birth board. I kept stalking it even after the babies were born. I don't think there is anything wrong it with it or anything wrong with the feelings you are experiencing.
