Re: **Read This First! Board Organization**

  • The gals of Week 4 decided it would be nice to have a crafting thread (maybe baking too?). Any thoughts? Should we have one big thread?

  • @jennifer_louise you could start out as one big thread (general crafting) and maybe have it run for the month. And then if different groups spawn off from that, then start separate threads. As long as it's an active thread I don't think anyone will mind it being on the list. My last BMB had a running "what are you reading" thread, a crafting thread (we had a bunch of scrapbookers and people who make those shirts with stuff on them - don't remember what it's called) and a running recipe/cooking thread. They were all pretty active.

  • I say stay. You are going to feel so far behind on the Aug board. I have always disliked being at the end of the due date spectrum on the BMB's anyways. I fall at the end this time and hate it. I do have to remind myself that come time for babies to be born, mine always come early, so I probably won't have to wait till the end of the month. Haha

  • @macheno you should stay! I was in the Nov 2018 BMB group but technically due in October because I had to deliver at 36wks (I knew this early on); but I stayed with the Nov group and glad I did!

  • @macheno Stay if you want. If I’m having two or three then I definitely won’t deliver in September either. 
    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*

  • Thanks ladies! Yeah, @linz36 I was at the end of my last BMB and it was tough. Especially since DS showed up 8 days late. I was the second to last delivery. 

    Hey, I noticed on the spreadsheet that there are tons of moms in groups 3 and 4 check-in, and barely anyone in groups 1 and 2. What do you guys think of combining groups 1 and 2.It might be nicer to have a few more people to get to know. Also, less treads on the board. We could wait a week or so to see if more moms join those groups.

  • @macheno Yep, another vote for staying! With my last pregnancy my dates were so off due to my wild cycles. We initially thought March and so I joined the March BMB. Ended up changing my date to mid Feb!  :| Thankfully they let me stay and I’m so glad!

    side note: I also actually was NOT the first to deliver in that group, either, I think I was the 3rd!

  • macheno I agree about combining 1st and 2nd weeks. I mentioned it to the 2nd week folks. There are just so few of us especially in week 1 that I think it would make it easier to have discussions if the group was combined.
