Hi everyone! I have been on a pregnancy after loss board on another website and am looking for a new "home" - my sister tracked me down there and has been reading my posts there as well as posting messages. She has never had a loss, and it just seems wrong to me that she is posting on a loss board now. In any case. I feel like my safe place that has been a great support to me over the past year is not safe anymore, I don't feel comfortable on that board now. I just found this website and I LOVE that there is a private, password protected page. I can't figure out who to PM or how to do it though to get the password. Can someone explain to me how to do this?

I had a miscarriage last October at 8 weeks. We had a little difficulty getting pregnant, but with the help of an RE, I got pregnant again in February and am now almost 36 weeks. I had preterm labor at 30 weeks, spent 4 days in the hospital, and have been on bedrest since then - but I'm almost done bedrest and so so grateful to have made it this far with a healthy baby. I really hope I can make some friends here as I did on the last board, it is amazing the support you can find from other people who have truly been there.

Hi Dee! Thanks for the warm welcome. I completely understand and appreciate your policy - that makes me feel even safer posting here. Since I am still on bedrest I am on the computer most of the day, so I will probably be posting quite a bit, I hope you don't get sick of me right away! I need to figure out how to add a siggy and all that stuff. I am totally new to this site altogether and trying to figure out how things work. I feel like the new kid trying to find my way around

we will try and help any way we can !!

to add any pics to your siggy (in your control panel) You will need to set up a free Photobucket account

http://photobucket.com/ and use the IMG code for your siggy. Once you get the hang of it, it is easy !
feel free to ask any questions.....

Hello! Welcome to JM!! This is a great site, and I have always felt very welcome and supported here. I Love it, and know you will too!

Anyhow, I would suggest being very secretive with your siggy (ie, no pics of yourself) if your sister tracked you down on another board. JM is very popular and if she trying to find you, she is likely to find JM too. Just my suggestion if you want to remain anonymous hun.

Anyhow, I am SOO excited to learn you are already 36 weeks, that is great!! Anyday now and you will be meeting your baby - YAY!! Do you know if it's a boy or girl?

Thank you so much girls!! I am going to try to work on my siggie, I really want to add a ticker - and thanks for the tips on staying anonymous! Very much appreciated

I am very sorry to hear about all of your losses. I hate that anyone has ever experienced such a tragic loss, but I am so grateful for the support I always recieve from anyone who has this common bond. I feel like my experience has truly made me a more empathetic person, I hope to be able to lend support to someone else in their time of need as well.

Oh, and we are having a little girl! I can't wait!

Hi! Welcome to PAL! I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, and the problem with your sister!

I wrote you a welcome note this weekend, just when I welcomed our other new lady; but when I came to check this morning, it's not here. Soooo, once again, welcome; I hope you find a happy home here! The ladies are wonderful, and it's so exciting that it's almost time to meet your little one already.

I somehow missed this one! Welcome to JM and PAL, although I'm sorry that you have to be in a loss support forum. I'm Brittanie, and I cohost the Pregnancy Loss forum.

I'm pregnant with my third. My first is my angel, Cora, who was stillborn, and then I had my sweetness, Erin, who is 15 months old.

So I'm glad that you have just jumped in! I'm sorry for the problem with your sister. My sister comes and checks up on me sometimes, but she's really sweet about it. I'm sorry your sister had a negative impact instead of being supportive like she should be.

Welcome aboard!
