    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...
    LOL, I know, I can't believe it went the whole day without one and then we both started it within 20 minutes of each other.  I'm back to work full time now so you're welcome to it!

     I'm super siked for FFFC - can anyone give me a quickie tutorial on how to gif while mobile??
    KirstinH88
  • @Dannylion24 Find a gif you want to use online. Copy the link of the gif (various phones have different ways of doing this). On my iPhone I can just hold down on the picture and then hit copy. Come back to the bump. Select the paper with the folded corner and paste the link where it says image URL.

    Holzie can have it for the time being, but I'll happily jump back in if she doesn't want it after a bit - I'm going to be travelling over the next month, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to hop in at a reasonable hour.

  • @KirstinH88 Did you want me to change the name of the SO thread? Or no? Also, is there a baby names thread yet? I realize it's early, but I know lots of people usually have names picked out early, anyway. :smile:

    Flame Free Friday Confessions ... I'm just excited to be starting a thread and wanted to make sure I knew how to gif before I do!

  • @beckyf321 FFFC stands for Flame Free Friday Confession. Confess your deepest, darkest secrets!  :D
    @Poison&;Wine I was hoping that the board would kind of come to a general consensus on that one. ::shrugs:: 

    Also, would we want the baby names thread as one long thread, or maybe broken out by month/week just in case it gets too long? I'm not sure how other BMBs have handled this topic. But you are right, I already have my future daughters name picked out.  ;)

  • @Dannylion24 @KirstinH88 My last BMB everyone posted in the same one for the whole pregnancy and it was a mess because most people change their mind at least once before LO is born. I love the idea of having a new one every month!
    KirstinH88
  • I don't mind so much if people change their mind, because I'm not really going to be using the thread as a bible of this is what you said you were naming your kid. That's what the spreadsheet is for  :D But I think it would be a good place to get opinions on your names and/or ask questions in regards to naming. I do think one post is going to get ridiculously long....So... ::shrugs::

    I was gonna say, probably doing either one stickied or a monthly thread would be fine, but nothing more frequent than that or it'll probably end up a ghost town.

  • I think monthly might be ok. But, it might get really repetitive. I would honestly prefer one that is stickied. We can always just see how it goes and add more if it gets crazy long.

  • Maybe we could do one for the first half and then the second half of our pregnancies if the first one gets chaotic
    KirstinH88
  • If the thread gets too chaotic, we can unsticky it and then I can change the name to reflect Part 1 or First Trimester or something along those lines and let it die down, then put a second thread with Part 2. Let's see how it goes. :)

    @KirstinH88 I think a monthly thread would be best to keep the list from getting too long. Weekly would be overkill, I think. How about I start the thread this weekend? It'll add a little something to the group to talk about over the weekend. :smile:

    Edit: I edited to say that I have a girl name picked out as well! Haha
    KirstinH88
  • @Poison&;Wine Sorry...I already started one  :# Feel free to comment away. And if there are just too many comments and its getting too long, then we can create a new one....

  • Wow with the rules!  Never been to a group where a member decided they were going to take control of the entire month to be the "boss".  Interesting to see how this plays out when we get further along and stuff doesn't fit in a category given....

  • @cookies754 thank you! The formatting is pretty stable/similar week to week. I think the only question that changes is the GTKY which is part of the fun! You can look back at this last weeks post for reference.
