Re: UO

  • I hate all reality TV, except for Honey Boo Boo and Teen Mom. Those are like train wrecks... I can't stop watching.

  • I feel like they should just let Nelson Mandela pass and not keep using life saving methods.

     

    But I don't know how unpopular of an opinion that is...

    BFP 6.25.13 ~ EDD 3.7.14
  • I think it's weird when people who are not currently pregnant post on BMB's. Did I lurk? Absolutely, but I never posted before a BFP.

  • This is probably a big UO, but I think it's weird to join a birth month board and post all kinds of things, without a BFP. Lurking is fine, to get a feel for the community if you are testing to hopefully become a member of it. But it's weird to me that people post on it about their BFN and testing plans...on a birth month board. I feel like those are for the moms that have a BFP and will have a baby in that month. I think they would be better suited for the TTGP board or something.

    Exactly! I ignore them. Weird.

    Amen! I'm not convinced it isn't a troll. If not a troll, a super weird person. For the record, I had more symptoms and had a "prettier" chart last month than I do now. None of that matters until you see the pink line, and it only sets people up for depression each month.

    Preach it! I feel the same way. I actually typed out a snarky remark last night, but I decided not to post it because I was feeling nice.

    I agree, but I can see where some people wouldn't. As long as they aren't going against his wishes no harm done, I suppose, but I wouldn't want this if it was me.

  • I have no shame. I'll do it. I was sort of thinking the same, either troll or super weird person. That sort of deserves a remark at this point.

    Thank you. I was actually nervous last night this board was going to be full of sunshine and unicorns. Glad to see I'm not the only one [for the record, I'm all for happiness and supporting each other, but there are limits].

    This is awesome.

    I was worried too...other people were all into it, like "OMG me too, I totes think we might be preggo!" But then I noticed almost all of them were doing the same thing, and didn't have a BFP either.

    I held off on an intro because I found it pretty annoying that this was looking like a TWW board more than anything. Very glad to know I am not alone!

    I will intro later when not mobile

    Crap. Guess I won't be able to introduce you guys to my unicorn then. That's too bad, she's pretty cool.

    No, really, thanks for pointing them towards TTGP. I also think it's weird that they're here.

    That's fine. I'm sure everyone would like any March mama to join. It's not to discourage anyone from being here. And by all means, lurk away. But in a week or two, if and when people get their BFPs, then that would be the time to post. We don't talk testing plans, BFNs, and 2WWs here. That is more appropriate for other boards. We are happily past it, but I wish them all the best of luck.

    I wouldn't say they bother me...I just find it strange. Like I said, I lurked every new BMB when I was trying but I would never think to post.

  • My UO is that in think most "things to avoid" during pregnancy are a load of crap. I figured I'd get this one out there before all the FTMs come out in a few weeks about what they can and can't have and drive me crazy. I'm sorry, a deli sandwich is not going to ruin your baby.

    Right? Weird.

    Why would you even want to? So you get to know people and then get a BFN and feel even worse??

    Agreed! The only thing I'm trying to do is limit my caffeine a bit, and by that I mean no more than two cups of coffee a day, obviously alcohol too! I might have a glass of wine in third tri though...

    I'll admit, I ate goat cheese last night and felt guilty because I forgot. Being PgAL [and a FTM] I am probably too cautious about food, but I know the odds are really low.

    Did you see the freak out someone had about not putting lettuce on the side at jimmy johns on Dec 13 board? It was pure comedy.

    And I'll be dyeing my hair. I know some people think its risky, but no one wants to see these skunky roots.

    Yes I saw the Jimmy John's thing, hysterical. I also will be highlighting my hair as normal. I think being a little cautious is ok, it's just people who go overboard. I did not eat any soft cheese last time and Feta is my favorite, I will have some this time, especially because now I know it's pasteurized.

    I concur!

    I don't blame them for posting, but also I almost don't care unless its serious alcohol, raw meat/eggs etc. but even then.. I still nuke my deli meats.

    I agree, but at the same time...I don't give two shiits if someone wants to skip deli meat, etc.  Actually, I think deli meat is absolutely disgusting (maybe that should be my UO??). Sometimes I think STMs on 1st tri get a little out of control with, EAT deli meat, DRINK caffeine, etc....if someone chooses to be cautious/limit their diet, thats their choice.

    I'm with you. I don't care if other people want to restrict their diet. I just remember on my first BMB they would tell the ladies that were eating "restricted" foods how they were risking the lives of their child for a SANDWICH!!!1! The horror lol. I just don't like sanctimommy's on either side of any issue haha

    Oh I agree, I think it's just like when people go, "OMG last night I completely forgot and I ate deli ham! Is my baby going to be ok?" Those are a bit much. 

     

    Now I want a ham sandwich. I am still constantly hungry. Patiently waiting for the nausea to set in...
