I know it will get better... but I miss you guys.

Right now my ddc is all about silly stuff... and what everyone is worried about ... and so many people are losing their babies. I don't even like checking.

Is that normal? I feel like I'm lurking more than actually posting because I'm just not comfortable posting with the people yet.

maybe I'm just crazy...

Sounds totally normal to me! I really had to put in a LOT of effort and try hard and post a lot to settle in here, to be perfectly honest. My other PR felt so much like home, and at first I was a little hestiant. I was determined, though, and I found the more effort I put in posting and being involved, the more I felt at home

That being said, you're also more than welcome to just hang out here and post here if you'dr ather, LOL! We'll take ALL your baby updates!

Mine was the same (Dec 2011) and only now that most of us are 12-14 weeks that the losses are stopping. It's really sad, but all DDC's are this way, unfortunately. It's a big group of pregnant women in one place so you see the losses a lot more. But it calms down... give it another 2-3 weeks, I would say. It's also kinda annoying with all the first-time-mommies asking silly questions that make you roll your eyes, but I remind myself I was there once too lol.

Sometimes it just doesn't work out. There was this one crazy chick in Katy's ddc, and in the end I decided just not to bother. I post here, and I post in Matt's, and I guess two is enough.

I felt the same way. I never really got "into" Ben's DDC (Dec 09) and have had a bunch of the mommies move over to a private group on FB, because the JM board is pretty much dead.

You'd better keep posting on Matt's, or I will nag you so bad...

I can't stand it when boards create private fb groups

I really am glad this group hasn't done that and I really hope Dec 11 doesn't

I hate the FB groups too!!! So dumb!

Anyways, I completely agree with Kel, I think those feelings are really normal when you join a new group. I had to put A LOT of effort into this DDC because my other one felt like "home" to me...

I must lack in patience or something but that is exactly why I wouldn't join a new one.

I think part of it, too, is how good a group you have. I've seen a lot of PRs that just don't gel for whatever reason... Some do, some don't. If you're in one that does, it can be hard to open up elsewhere. If you're in one that doesn't, it's probably a lot easier. We just rock here

Yeah. Natasha's PR, back when it was active, was all like, "I love you girls, you're my best friends, I don't know what I would do without you all...!!!" And then KABOOM, all went to hell!



This one is pretty awesome, though!

LOL! hehe...

I'm trying the 'post more to learn more' idea... and so far it's getting better. I know what it's like to be a newbie and I can't believe how annoying they are ... but I get it. Everything is new and exciting.

I just miss you guys... we did have a great group (do..have a great group)! LOL
