Hi - new to the group? Any interest in making it more active? — The Bump
TTC after 35

Hi - new to the group? Any interest in making it more active?

Hi all - new to the board and wondering if there's interest in more activity in this group or if there's another TTC35+ anyone can recommend. TIA.
(Also, is there a glossary of all of the acronyms? I know the basics fertility ones, but the list appear to be endless.)

    I still lurk and try to encourage participation whenever possible, but there is plenty of activity on "trying to get pregnant", and many of those women are 35+. You'll find a comprehensive list of acronyms there in the "read this first" threads (no idea where the one for this board went). You will also find help in changing your username to something less generic than knottie456asdf123 so you can more easily engaged and supported.
