NEW Week By Week Boards!

Hi Bumpies,

Just letting you know about some new message boards you might be interested in. We now have week-by-week boards for every week during your pregnancy where you can chat with other Bumpies who are in your exact age group!

Here is the link to all of the week by week boards.

Thanks! -Bump Kathleen

    Scroll all the way to the bottom and you will see a small section with the message board/posts.  I didn't see it at first, because week 4 currently has no post.

  • What I don't get is that because every woman experiences pregnancy differently, why do weekly boards matter? Is there that much we really have to chat about each week. I don't think so. Seems a bit ridiculous.

  • Week boards!? WTF... That's sure a great use of the Bumps technology resources. <insert sarcasm here>. How's that search function coming along?

  • This is so stupid. Why have a week-by-week board PLUS trimester boards? 

    What a waste.

  • I'm always a little surprised by the strong feelings people have about these things.. I'm not all that concerned about bump resources, I have a feeling there are enough that it won't affect me to any significant degree.

     You mean week by week plus birth month,  plus trimester boards, plus tons of special interest boards.

    I like the BMB, because it removes some of the stress from the tri boards from the new folks irritating the veterans and the vets making the newbies cry.  And the special interest makes sense as well. But really, in a birth month there is still too much difference?

  • That is just too much. It just spreads things out really thin. I was on the Bump in 2009 and it was much better and more interesting then. Today, it is just a pale version of what it used to be. People are lurking more and not posting.

    What is BMB? Sorry, probably a stupid question.

    I think it's stupid because, for me, it is too much to keep up with. I like having the monthly board because, for the most part, those are ladies I'm always going to be in contact with/reading posts from for the next 9 months. It's like a built-in support group. The trimester boards are okay, but I find it hard to keep up with both the monthly and the trimester board. Plus trimester boards seem to have a lot of repetitive posts as new people come in and ask the same questions people were asking just a week ago. Tossing a week-by-week board in seems like it's one more thing to keep up with and keep track of.

    I like the actual "articles" better about what's going on with each week of pregnancy. Plus, you can comment on those pages and people can chat about what's going on that specific week there. It just seems redundant and a waste of space/time/resources to make a dedicated board that people are quickly going to be cycling in and out of. I like knowing/recognizing people I post with. Weekly boards completely defeat the point of community, which I think is why message boards should exist to begin with.

    Phew... I guess I felt more strongly about this than I realized!

  • Hi there,

    To view the chats, click on each individual week and then scroll to the bottom.

    The week by week message boards are there for anyone who would like to utilize them for week by week questions. No need to leave the age group boards if you'd rather not!

    Thanks Bumpies!

  • Hey Kathleen- do you guys actually listen to what your users are saying or just skip along on your belligerent merry way ignoring everything that is commented on or requested? PS- I really hope windeal finds this post.
    Fuuck TTC - I'm moving on.
