***This thread is lovingly "borrowed" from July17, to get things started.  We can and will obviously adjust to make things our own in A17.  If there's any changes you would like to make let me know in the comments (or send me a PM) and we can discuss them. I did make a few tweaks.***

Welcome to the August 2017 Birth Month Board!  So excited for you to be here and congrats on your BFP!

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!  Specific threads have volunteers to start (IE: ticker changes, PGAL/FTM/STM+ check ins). Those assigned threads have been volunteered for and have the names of that responsible person next to it.

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.  

If you have a specific question please first use the search function if you are looking for specific answers to things to ensure we have not already answered your question. If you cannot find the answer then please post it in one of the weekly topics.  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 August, a thread about what people are planning for their hospital go-bags. Once we all get farther along, we will also have pinned threads for things like gender announcements, nursery pics, and birth announcements.


Daily Threads: (please add the date to the thread title)

  • Ticker Changes (when your weekly progression changes, you participate in that day. For example, if I will be 10 weeks on Friday, that's the day I participate).

  • @MaMinette13 and I were discussing the siggy challenge in the testing siggy thread so I thought I'd move it here. 

    Are others interested in the siggy challenge?  Basically, at the end of every month we nominate siggy themes and then do a poll to vote on which one we'd like to do. Those who want to participate then add a GIF or image to their siggy. We then nominate and vote of the winner at the end of the month. Winner gets bragging rights. Then it repeats for the next month.  These can bring a lot of fun and laughter to the board.

  • Oh I'll take why my SO is an A-hole/awesome as well. I didn't see those before. Is there any way we can see if some of the other ladies would like to take on some of the daily threads? I'm all for the monthly siggy challenge as well.

  • Omg...can someone please tell me how to get the ticker to stay without having to copy and paste every time.  Idk why I'm struggling with this lol
    Nxy
  • @bumpybump Just realized it probably makes more sense for someone with a Friday ticker change to run that thread, since I wouldn't be able to participate anyways. Any chance I can switch to What my pregnant self is eating if someone else didn't already volunteer? Thanks!

    1. While in these forums, click the little person silhouette at the top right (if you hover over it, it says "Account Options") and click "Preferences".
    2. On the left, click "Signature Settings".
    3. This is important and where I was messing up at first: there is a little symbol with "</>" on it where the other editing options are that you have to click first. The entry box will turn yellow. Paste your code in and then save.

  • Do we have to do this? I dont fully understand this and i feel that i would like to communicate with anyone who is due in august not just the same week that i am at. I am not trying to sound rude or anything . please dont take me that way. I just like a more community feel than a segregated feel.  :)

    @EmBanga Welcome! No one has to participate or not particpate in any threads. I can see you're new to TB. Check out a few other BMB and you'll see that after a while, you'll have several hundred members. It's hard to keep track of who's who, so the check-ins help. It's totally flexible because due dates change all the time. And I'm sure someone will get the typical spreadsheet going soon, but there are August EDD ladies who still haven't found out they are KU or who are waiting to join still... so it will get busy up in here! (PS Anyone who wants to start that spreadsheet is welcome! Check out another BMB to see what to include.)
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*

    I can do the Wednesday ticker change. Although I don't have one. I'm mobile 100% of the time and I've never figured it out.

    There was someone that volunteered I thought, can I just copy the ones from the other tickers? 

  • @mborn24 she wasn't an actual Friday ticker change so she said she'd let someone who is on Friday to do it instead.  I'll add you above.  And yes, you can just copy from one of the other days.  You may want to change the GTKY from time to time though :)

  • Score! As I was adding my ticker, I saw that there's a box to check for "strip images from signatures" which takes out all the siggy pics and gifs. Don't get me wrong, it looks like fun, but I have super slow internet and the images make loading the forums annoying.
