Welcome to October 2017 BMB!  If you're new to TB, we're excited to have you! Below you will find information on how the flow of BMBs work, guidelines and helpful links.

Some links that you may find helpful:

For the sake of board organization, here are some simple guidelines for posting threads:

DO:
-Introduce yourself in the "Introductions" thread
-Feel free to start one of the weekly posts listed below: if a post is "assigned" but hasn't been started by mid morning, feel free to start it!
-Post your own thread if you have a confirmed loss
-Post a thread that would apply to the entire community and doesn't fall into one of the categories for daily threads listed below (Ex: what to pack in your hospital bag, baby gear, etc)
-Comment, share advice and show support for your fellow bumpies; this is a two-way street, to get support, you must show it as well

DON'T:
-Start a thread asking about symptoms; please post this in the current weekly "symptoms thread"
-Ask the community if you are pregnant, it is against TOU
-Start a thread asking for relationship advice; a professional is better suited for this task
-Post pictures of your pregnancy test, this is also against TOU
-Post a thread that asks a question only applying to yourself unless you suspect you may be going through a MC
-Get bent out of shape if someone calls you out for not following these guidelines; if you expect to be part of a supportive board (which we are), you need to be able to take the time to learn the ins and outs of the board

  • I'll volunteer for Monday Ticker Change!

  • @mommac2017 sounds good!

    Do we want to have designated people for every one of these? Or should we have certain ones left unassigned? Like, have the general topics left open for anyone to start, but assign the ticker changes and check-ins?

    I think having some left unassigned will help make people feel welcome and more willing to participate. Thoughts?

  • I think that's a great idea!! Maybe have each Ticker day assigned to someone (since that's a good update and so people know who shares their EDD). But some of the more "fun ones" like "why my pregnant self is crying" could be more on a whim?

    I'm pretty relaxed about how these boards go though. I know others (at least what I've seen in the past) can be more particular about how things are run. I'm flexible! As long as people are polite, I'm cool with whatever!

    I feel like too many boards get strict about stuff and it makes it not so fun and hard to feel like you can contribute. I mean, I'll flame someone when it's called for, but getting bent out of shape over someone starting a thread because it's "not theirs", not my style.

    Hopefully if we start this board off as laid-back it will stay that way lol :wink:
    I agree, sometimes you can't get on TB due to work/travel etc. I'd hate to think everyone was hanging on for a thread to start because people were afraid to crack on and get it going.

    Likewise, if things are a little slow to begin with I'd personally be ok if someone wanted to start more than one thread that day because they found they had time.

    ETA: As I am in the UK, primarily on a weekend I found myself up earlier than most, so would start some of the weekend threads. It generally worked well but if anyone has issues with a thread being started a few hours before you wake - let me know.

  • This may be a dumb issues, but I can't figure out how to make the tracker pop up on my signature. I copy & pasted the link and the actual link shows up instead of the tracker.

  • I love the laid back idea!!! I hate super formal threads where you can only say or do certain things by rules and are afraid to ask or talk cause you'll get attacked! Let's just all be happy and enjoy now til October! Can't wait to meet and connect with you ladies.
