When I first joined this board i wasnt that much of a regular poster but became alot more active about the year before i became pg with Jack, there ewre alot of members i clicked with, Lou, sally, sharron, karen, charlotte, bex and lots more, the board used to be great fun when i was pg with Jack and the uk mums were always top of the top posters board Ive met some lovely people through JM
I know I do miss those days. I'm sure we could get "up there" again but we would need more members, we have a lovely select group now but the problem is there's so few of us sometimes we are all MIA together and the board goes flat. If there were a few more of us in number that would be less likely to happen...ah well. I'm planning to do some inviting on other boards and stuff, I know there are a few other UK ladies out there but posting mostly on TTC boards and DDCs. I think a lot of people miss us cos we're at the bottom of the list!!
When I first joined I'm not sure there was anyone here that's here now...I think most people like Rach, Bex, and Sally joined or certainly became active while I was co-host...and Lou, Emma and Claire a little later still.
I remember Kat my co-host, she was lovely and it's a shame she's not here now. The ladies I remember most from that time are Clara (daffodill), Chrystal and Joanne - Joanne invited me over from another board. At the time the two main things were a member calendar with all the EDDs, birthdays etc on and a map of the UK that we all added our locations to. I remember it being hard work finding newbies who were from the UK and wracking our brains all the time trying to come up with enough topics to keep it moving!!
Nope I never hosted with Karen, I hosted with Kat then I hosted briefly with Ellie. Then I stepped down when I was so poorly and Daniel was so poorly post-partum. After a while I got more active again - Karen and Bex were the hosts but I was deffo a regular because I didn't post much anywhere else back then. That's probably what you're remembering.
When I first joined the board the girls I remember were Rach, first and foremost because she was pregnant at the same time as me. Then there was Karen, Bex, Sharron, Abby, Sally and Charlotte. I don't remember Joanne or Kat so I don't think they could have been posting very much when I joined.
I first came across this board when i was TTC and i introduced myself, one of the hosts i remember was KAT not sure who the other was? i only stayed about a week because i didn't feel very comfortable, everyone was so close and i felt like an intruder some usernames/people i remember posting at the time was Bex, Rach, Karen, Abby, Kat, Joanne, Sharron an probs a few more, anyway i went away and carried on posting in the TTC board about a year passed before i came back over i was pregnant with Rhianna and a few of the previous posters had already left i remember that Bex was still here along with Karen, Rach, Abby but i dont think Kat and Joanne were?.. I think Emma, Tracy and Claire were posting then and maybe Sally, Charlotte and Lou too.. I felt much more at "home" the second time round and everyone was so friendly, didn't take me long to settle in at all.
I think the host before me was someone called Annie? Sounds like you first came shortly before I was co-host. I remember you posted a little and then came back later and posted more. Sorry if I was any part of making you feel unwelcome, I hate when boards get cliquey and always try to avoid that xxx
