    Hi @knottie4fb0de13892d613c.  Thanks for doing a formal intro.  It looks like your username is still not updating.  Here is the instructions on how to do it.  If you're able, try to do it from a computer, and not mobile.  Until you change it to something more unique, it will be really difficult for other people to tag and interact with you.  

    How to change your username: log in to TheKnot, hover over My Knot, and click Account Settings. Then, log back out and log into The Bump.  If you are having issues doing it that way, you can email [email protected] and ask them to change your username. Give them a few suggestions just in case your top choice is taken. It may take up to 24 hours for the name to update.

    ETA more detailed instructions

  • @shamrocandroll do I need to make a new login for the knot or will it be the same login info?
  • @knottie4fb0de13892d613c Nope, just log in with the same login info and go to your account settings and change it there.  Then make sure you log out.  For some reason it doesn't seem to kick in until you log out.  Then you use the same login for The Bump and log back in.  I hope it works for you!

  • @m6agua no he didn’t! Said if I didn’t end up pregnant in 6 mos. they would then look at him. I hadn’t really thought about it but he should go ahead and have one so I can know if that could be part of the problem before blaming myself (which I know I shouldn’t anyway but it’s really hard not to.)

  • @saladflambe Welcome back! I'm in the same boat as you, DD is the same age as yours and we're trying for #2! Hope your stay is short! 

    @knottie4fb0de13892d613c Welcome! A lot of people make posting faux paste but the cool people stick around (but hopefully not for too long) and join in! 

    @alauren63 Welcome! Glad the summer had been relaxing!

  • @litigatorgal Are you Gator fan?! If you are, Go Gators! If not, that’s cool, welcome anyway 😂And if you are a fan, here you go. My current favorite picture. 

    BusinessWifeNYTino24keikiloveottergirl81
  • Nope, not a gator fan, just a boring old lawyer, a litigator.  Not a scary litigator, though:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ht1GCiLd7gg

    @tyrion_ Hahaha I wondered the same thing! I read her name as “Liti Gator Gal” like maybe it was a play on “little”. But then I realized she’s a lawyer so it’s “Litigator Gal”😂

    Welcome @litigatorgal! I’m sorry for your previous loss. You may want to join the weekly TTCAL “TTC after loss” thread that’s within this TTGP board. Lots of support there for those of us who have suffered losses & are nervous about getting pregnant again.♥️
