March 2014 Moms

Facebook group?

Hey ladies! EDD for my little one is 3/11/2013. Congrats to all of you ladies for your positives!! Has anyone created a private Facebook group yet for us March mommies? I know a friend of mine said that her group from a year ago made one and it has been amazing so I was just wondering if we had one yet. :. Thanks ladies!

Re: Facebook group?

  • We talked about this a few weeks ago and I think the majority of the girls didn't like the idea... Mainly privacy issues. Maybe as we get further along.

  • I'm the type that likes my Facebook life and my Bump life to be separate. So even if there was a group, I wouldn't join. When I was on TTCAL, I made a really good friend and on our own we decided to become friends on Facebook. If that happens with this group, cool. If not, meh.

  • I can understand that. Hopefully later down the line we can start one. :

  • I'm sure there will be one created at some point, but I think its way too early.

    LOL! That's true. The crazies haven't shown up yet. I guess the reason I asked was because I know they will and I also remember how mean some of the ladies on the TTC side were. Guess I was just trying to be preemptive about it. I see what you ladies are saying though. It is a bit early yet. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for when one pops up though. A friend of mine said that her month created one back when she was pregnant with her son and it has become a huge mommy support group for all of them. I think it would be a great thing to have when we progress with our pregnancies.

  • We could do one and just make the group private. It might make for an easier communication area.

    Haha the irony of who said this is funny to me. ;)

     

    On subject though, its inevitable that one will be created and I will definitely join, its so much easier to get to know people on FB. Its still a little early though. On my last BMB one wasn't created until 3rd tri which I think was a really good timing. We hadn't gotten to know a lot of each other by then and the switch was made before all the newborn craziness happened.

    Yeah, me thinks it's too early.  Unfortunately, a lot of people will be leaving still (miscarriages, etc) and that's just kinda awkward to need to leave a group for those reasons.  Plus, I don't really know anyone here yet. I depend on avatars and siggies to even semi know who someone is. 

     


  • I think this is a great idea for the near future.

  • I've said it before, but you don't need a FB group to get close. My birth group from my first pregnancy 4 years ago is still going strong and super close. No Facebook group was ever made. If one is made, I won't be joining for privacy reasons.

    This too.  I sometimes think it's easier to get close via a message board, vs FB. Everyone is just a name on FB, especially in the beginning.  I can honestly tell more now here by siggies, avatars, etc.   I've been a part of message boards since the late 90's (helllllo AOL) and I'm still friends with some of them.  NOW we are on FB together, but we got close over 10 years before it existed.

    Plus, I tend to think we make close friends here and there on boards on our own..  and some of us tend to just add those people (vs a group).

    That said, I'm not opposed to one for the future.   But, I'm the type who prefers to just add the ones I might get close to to my personal page. 


  • Ooo, I think its a fantastic idea! I don't usually post anything to Facebook that I wouldn't post here. But I definitely agree we should at least wait for the majority of us hit the second tri. I'd be sad to leave, or see someone leave over a miscarriage.

  • I'm on the same page as most gals here, possibly but let's wait till everyone is in 2nd tri. I haven't announced and wound be until we see heartbeat next u/s in 1.5 weeks!

    Who has the energy to keep it up THAT long? That's crazy.  I'm crazy, but not quite that type of crazy. 


  • I would rather we start an off-board (later) if we want.  Its more private, which is good for sharing pictures and birth stories, etc, but you can still keep your real identity secr

    I'm crazy too but I'm considered normal in my own culture.. But it's because we're a bit nutty up here.. It's all that fresh air.

  • My first BMB created a FB group. Then they closed it after a while and a second group was made. There was talk of a mole being in group #1 and there was so much drama due to these groups. It was pretty ridiculous, to be honest. 

    I am against any FB groups, but if there has to be one, make it open to all and don't "select" only certain people to be able to join. Don't bring anything from FB to the board, it will end in drama.

  • I'm all for a group! I thought I heard one was already created but I may be wrong. I'm ok waiting till second tri. I'm part of dec 11 FB group and they are some of my bestfriends now. Luckily I have a few of them on this group too!!! Yay!!!

  • From past experience I think it wise to wait. I think once our LO's are here. I am apart of a wonderful FB group that sprung from TB and it has been an amazing experience and I made IRL friends from it. I have also seen A LOT fail horribly also. Ditto what Ricola said about if there is one. FB needs to stay separate and don't pick and choose members. Those are the FB groups that fail miserably.
