Lurkers time to come out!

In honor of the UO today.

It's time for all the lurkers to come out. Post your intro here, then continue posting. We are a bunch of nice ladies and we don't bite.

I use to be one of these lurkers when I was PG with DS and even after I had him. Then I got into a group of women on the 6 to 9 month board and finally started posting a little more. Those ladies started a FB group and I'm happy to say even though most of them are no longer on TB, there are almost 70 still active in the FB group 2 years later!

    I agree! I lurked on TTGP for a few months and slowly started to post there. I am really happy I got my BFP and decided from day one to be more active here. The ladies are awesome and it does feel like an online family now.

    Lurkers come out.....

  • Better late then never... I have been on the bump for almost 2 years now. I used to post occasionally in ttgp. Since we conceived, I have been an occasional lurker. Lately, I've been lurking daily. 

     I am 37 weeks today. We are expecting a little girl- due 10/11/12. This will be our first and dh and I are very excited. It took us a little longer than we had hoped (tttc), but we finally made it and soon we will be holding our little one.

  • I feel like I need to post on this just because I've been so busy lately I've missed out on so much!  I've been scrolling through so many posts and my mind is blown that I've missed so many births!  I agree that everyone here is really nice and supportive and I miss checking the boards everyday :)

    I did a wee intro but will do one again here!

    I'm due on Halloween, I have difficult-to-control GD which I hate, I am 38 years old and I am a FTM. I live in Canada, and today I am confused about breast pumps. :)

    You're not a lurker! I'm even on the mobile site, so I can't see your siggy, but I know your username. That's saying something as I can't remember names, ever!

  • MAJOR LURKER HERE! 

    I introduced myself in the beginning and on a very rare occasion reply to a post. I'm a little bit more active on the high risk board.

    Here's a rundown of me:

    Pregnant with DS 2, due on 10.29, "technically" have GD ( I have challenges with my fasting numbers), getting p17 shots due to DS1 being born at 33 weeks and couldn't figure out how to get the bulleted list to work on my iPad. Sorry.

     I pretty much read all of the posts, including the UO from today.

    I'll try to be more active because I do want to share my birth story and I don't want to come off as a weirdo AW.

  • I mostly lurk. I'd like to post more, but I might be a bit shy. I'm the kid in class that has an opinion but rarely raises my hand, sadly. I'm a SAHM and have been around here since I was pregnant with DS. I'm 36ish weeks and hoping for an uneventful home birth.

    Crazy to think we will all have babies in our arms in the next couple weeks!

  • I suppose I fall into that category since I lurk more than I post and am a bit of a sporadic poster. I've introed before but it's been awhile and I haven't posted regularly in between. I'm 38 weeks today due with a little boy on 10/4. I'm 31 going to be 32 in November and DH is 30. This is our first and we have 2 furbabies. This baby is hopefully our rainbow baby. I have had 3 pregnancies prior to this that ended in early miscarriage.

    I can't wait for LO to be born but it's still a bit surreal and hard to believe that it's so close.  


    BFP #1: Very faint positive 2/10/11, digital HPT BFP on 2/11/2011 (EDD 10/20/2011) Missed m/c 3/18/2011, 9w1d and confirmed 10w1d. Natural m/c started 4/8/2011 (12w1d).

  • I intro'd a while ago and I've started posting a bit more but I'm probably still considered a lurker so I'll do it again.

    FTM due 10/3 but being induced next Wednesday at 39 weeks due to high blood pressure plus a blood clotting disorder that has required me to be on blood thinners throughout the entire pregnancy plus 6 weeks pp.

  • I don't think I lurk. Do I lurk? I comment on every single post in my mind and I honestly don't know what I physically post on in real life. So I have no idea if I qualify as a lurker. I don't think I do...but then again I thought with only a couple weeks left all the lurkers had come out by now.
  • Not sure if I am considered a lurker or not. I posted an intro back in first tri and then totally lurked during the second tri. I've been more active now that we are in the third tri, and feel like I have something to add now. I feel like with under 200 posts, power user bumpies would totally say I'm a lurker.

    Brief Re intro: 2yo daughter that cracks me up on a daily basis. Due with DD2 Oct 17th. DH is a police officer and occasionally a total pain in my butt, and I am a SHAM after 12 years as an HR Director. We live in FL VERY near the ILs and all of my family is out of state. Oh and I hide all the chocolate, usually just a dark chocolate bar, in the house in the freezer so I don't have to share.

  • I am a FTM, joined the bump around March but with going to school full time and working I didn't get on here much. Now that I'm only working I have been on here multiple times a day. I'm the type of person to sit back and learn, especially since this is my first pregnancy, but I try and comment on things that I do know.

    My EDD is 10/9 and we are having a boy who will be named Collin Philip. Pregnancy has been pretty normal besides having platelets a little under the norm.

  • hello everyone! ::stands up:: my screen name is twiggyplusone and I'm a lurker. ;) I'm a FTM and my EDD is 10/25. I used to work full time in the hospitality industry until 28 weeks when I was diagnosed with IUGR (my little girl has fluctuated between the 8th and 5th percentile since then) and have been on modified bed rest since then. The transition from working 80+ hours to literally only being allowed to go to the grocery store once a week has been rough but I'm trying to enjoy the rest while I have it before DD arrives. Speaking of which, unless I go into labor on my own, my doc will induce me around 38-39 weeks. I'm nervous as can be because not only is this my first child but 90% of my family lives in my hometown and most of them in the same neighborhood, so I'm kind of the first to do this away from everyone (I live about 13 hours away). But I have a wonderful fiance and, oddly enough, really great in-laws who live an hour away from us. Soooo that's what's going on with me, just anxious for a healthy weight baby and waiting patiently for the new season of Game of Thrones. At least one of these will happen soon! :P

  • Not really sure if I count as a lurker but since I have under 200 posts maybe I do.  I don't know if anyone remembers me but I posted about  my LO having a couple congenital heart defects.  Because of his heart defects it was hard for me to really accept his condition and have been scared about what the future holds for him so I have not posted much. I have finally started feeling hopeful like we are going to get him better and he will be a fighter. I definately plan on trying to be more active on this board. Thanks to everyone who has given me support knowingly or not over these difficult months!

  • Hello everyone, I am definitely a lurker! I have been enjoying this board for the past couple of months but have never posted until now. Thanks everyone for the great discussions!

     My husband and I are very happy to be expecting our first (a girl!) Oct 2nd though now that I've hit the 38 week mark I am ready to meet her anytime... as soon as she is ready!

     I had some bad first trimester sickness but since then this pregnancy has been very smooth and we are planning for a natural midwife-assisted birth at the hospital. Wishing everyone smooth births and happy healthy little ones!

    Now I just need to figure out about adding a signature on here...

  • Love the intros, ladies!  We're a decent bunch...even other boards agree that we're probably "too nice" sometimes.  Daronsmommy...thanks for posting this invite!

    I definately remember you. Maybe it's because your LO has been in my thoughts and prayers often. My little cousin has a congenital heart defect and at 10 years old just had his 5th open heart surgery. He had to have a pacemaker inserted at 13 months old, but has done extremely well with it. This last surgery was routine, just to change placement and change the batteries. He was back up and around, went to the NHRA race just 4 days after surgery!
    I will continue to think about and pray for your LO. Many hugs being sent your way!

  • I'm 28, DH will be 30 next week. We live near Vancouver, BC. I'm currently staying at home (graduated from university last year) and DH is an electrician. Last year I was pregnant with b/g twins. I went into labour at 22 w 3 d with them. They were born and each passed 5 minutes later. It was awful. This was last November.

    I then got pregnant with this LO (Chloe) in February. I was shocked! Saw an MFM doc to make sure this pregnancy was good. He was great and wasn't worried at all about this LO. What happened with my twins, Kira and Ethan, was a freak accident that led to preterm later; it was nothing "wrong" with me. This pregnancy has been great, but she's definitely made herself known this whole time!

    Oh and we also have two Labs, one black and one yellow. And I'm just super excited to finally be a mommy to a living baby. :) And sorry if I've been more of a lurker, I'm just shy I guess, though it's online! 

    I may not have posted much during this pregnancy b/c it was just too hard several months ago to think about my pregnancy too much, and reading stuff on The Bump was just making me anxious and not helping. I came back though and have been reading stuff almost daily and posting as often as I can. Glad to be a part of this group and you ladies have really helped me through this.

  • I guess I am a lurker. Sometimes I just don't have much to say, as I am a 35 weeks and going to be a FTM. I come on here every so often on my ipad, and still havent figured out how to put pictures on here or anything. This pregnancy was not planned at all, but my husband and I certainly embraced it. Not scared of contraction pain, but terrified of the ring of fire. Not ruling out pain meds completely, but still going to try for a med free birth. Here's to hoping anyway!

  • I had to go read the UO thread just to make sure I wasn't in violation of some "bump" etiquette! I haven't had the baby yet so I think I'm good *looks around nervously just to make sure*.

    Anyway, I did an intro at the very beginning of the pregnancy, posted a little, and have just recently started posting here and there. I come across as kind of awkward on-line (not in real life though, it's weird) so I limit my posting. So, there's that. I'm here usually everyday killing time at work!

  • I mainly lurk.  I did an intro way back when and posted a bit.  Then I just switched to lurking - no real reason why.  I will post from time to time, but nothing regular.  I wish I was a regular poster though!

    Due Oct 17 with a little boy!

  • I think I probably count as a lurker, even though I post and comment every now and again.  I'm due 7 October, but my OB thinks the little boy could arrive any day now. I live in Ottawa, Canada and this will be my first take home baby after losing a LO this time last year.
  • Hello! :)

    I have mostly been a lurker on TB although I have posted to a few threads throughout this pregnancy. My DH and I are expecting our first child, a girl. Our due date is October 27th. I am currently working full-time and going to school to get my Masters. I'm so glad you posted this thread, it gave me the opportunity to finally introduce myself!

  • Hello! I'm a lurker. I am 27 and a FTM. My DH and I are excited to welcome our baby boy(Carson James) into our family soon. I am 37 weeks and due 10/11/12. I have had a very nice pregnancy so far, and would like to thank everyone for their posts. They have been very helpful!!

  • Hi... I'll re-intro.   I am due Oct 1st and was one of the original members on this board.  I stayed semi-active the first 20 week but have turned lurker the last half due to a crazy work schedule and general day to day busyness.    I do log on every few nights and scroll through the posts so I creepily feel like I know a lot of you... but it's generally at 8:30 as I'm scarfing down my dinner before I crash for the night so I rarely attempt a one handed post.   I have 6 work shifts left before maternity leave and am excited to meet our LO and also become more active again  : )

    I'm surprised too, especially considering I think we do have a relatively active board!
