Some links that you may find helpful:

For those of you that are new to TB since you got your BFP, the threads below are standard threads to all boards. Anyone can start these threads, just please do not duplicate! Some work better if one person volunteers -- feel free to do so in the comments below! I'll list volunteers next to their chosen thread(s). If you do accidentally start a duplicate thread, that's a great opportunity to start a GIF party!

*****The community of this board encourages giving support as well as receiving it and prefers threads that benefit the whole rather than the individual.  A wide range of topics are covered in our regular weekly threads, and we also have two catch-all threads for questions/comments/discussions/announcements: “Pregnancy Chatter” (pregnancy/childcare) and “Randoms & Spam” (non-pregnancy/childcare).  

If you have a specific question you’d like answered for yourself or announcement about your situation, please post it in one of the weekly topics or the chatter threads.  The exception to this is confirmed loss - please update us if you are comfortable doing so in either your own thread (for which you will receive response notifications) or in an existing relevant thread (which you will not unless the responder directly tags you).

If there is a discussion for the community that would be better served in its own thread, feel free to post it!  A good example of this may be a GTKY (Get To Know You) question or, as we near April, a thread about what people are planning for their hospital go-bags.

  • @Jerilu Do you have a blurb that you would like me to add in there. I wasn't around for I guess what seemed like an intense debate on all this. :)

  • I can do FFFC, but I'm mobile and haven't figured out how to gif so the entry will probably be kinda lame-o! Also if I forget I won't get offended at all if someone saves my butt and posts for me!

  • I could do HDBD thread each week. My last BMB started doing them when we were all about this far along.
  • @KirstinH88 I would love to post a weekly thread! I'm trying to be more involved this time. What threads do you need someone to take over? 
  • @Poison&;Wine The thread is updated, so any that do not have a name already next to them are up for the taking! :)

  • @Caressa1 I think it would be better until some of us are at least to 12 weeks, which is when your uterus technically starts showing. You can definitely do it then, though. We have about 4 weeks to go until then.

  • @Dannylion24, lol!!! Mine would just be "hump day fat day" because I will always have that tummy pudge after having DS. No more flat tummy here!!!
    Dannylion24ashleym112
  • I can definitely wait a few weeks before starting the first one if everyone thinks that's best!
  • @STM2017 right there with ya, girlie!

  • I'll do Thursday ticker change if we want to make it official, unless you want it @Beckyf321
    I think we  both tried to get it going last week and inadvertently confused people...
    Beckyf321
  • @KirstinH88 Do you think I could have a weekly thread for griping about your significant other? Mainly over the fact that they just don't understand us pregnant gals. Lol. My so is great, but they had a thread in my last birth month club and it cracked me up reading those lady's stories. I'll call it, "Partner Pandemonium" lol  
    KirstinH88MHL2ashleym112
  • @poison&;wine @KirstinH88 or 'Why my SO is an a-hole..." I think its not a bad idea. I remember my last bmb had so many posts griping about the jerky things the men in our lives say or do. All we can really do is say "yep, sounds like an ass" but sometimes you just need to vent.

  • TheJerilu said:
    What do people think about staggering some of the weekly topics throughout the week?

    Weekly Appointments, Randoms, and Chatter would definitely stay Monday as they're more time dependent, but we could probably move the other check-ins and fun topics on different days.

    This might help reduce some of the info dump on Mondays and give people more of a reason to pop in each day.
    Yes please! I think this would help a lot.

  • @TheJerilu, 100% yes! Mondays seem very heavy right now and then there is not as much activity the rest of the week it feels like. I volunteered to do Symptoms Thread. Happy to move that to another day :)
    KirstinH88
  • Not sure if I'm qualified haha, but I can do "Fit Mamas Check-in" weekly.  Will do it on another day - maybe Thursdays?

  • @Holzie I will put you on for the multiple thread. Not sure if someone already volunteered for Tuesday. @TheJerilu, maybe? I'll have to check. I would do the multiples post every week, but if you realize there aren't many of you, and the need is not there, then you MOMs can decide what timeframe works best.
