I was just searching for mothering forums and stumbled across this one. I was hoping to find a resource for things I knew I wanted to do in the next couple of years (fertility awareness, obviously, as well as natural birth information), and I also was moving from Ontario to GA and wanted to see if I could find anyone I could potentially hang out with post-move.

I joined a couple but have really only stuck around JM. I find the ladies here tend to be friendlier than other places. I also appreciate environments where it's okay to disagree and everyone doesn't have to be on the exact same page about any and all issues to be welcomed.

I've seen so many horror stories of other sites! I believe the bump is one of the worst ones for the bickering and insulating!



I found JM because my BFF is a member and was pregnant with her 3rd baby. She kept sending me links to look at .. and I realized that the site had boards I could visit as a non mommy/angel mommy.. so I signed up. I also wanted to see the siggy's and they aren't visible if you aren't logged in. That was 4 years ago now.

I was googling early pregnancy symptoms and came across the TTC board which was FULL of other crazy symptom analyzing ladies

I've also heard horror stories about other sites. I'm glad I found this one first

When we started TTC in 2007 I decided to look up information on it and came across the TTC forum. I got pregnant first cycle try and had a loss so I found a home over at TTCAL and have been posting since

I came from an unmoderated site, and it can get so ugly...

Anyway, I came to JM when I got GD, I wanted somebody else who'd had GD and back then we had a GD forum, now it is a subforum on the high risk pregnancy board.

A friend used it and told me about it. I lurked for the longest time until I got pregnant with Eli and started to feel comfortable posting.

I googled pregnancy forums when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. I actually really love JM and I am very sad with how slow it's become, now that everybody migrates over to facebook.

I was on the pill, working odd hours (nights 4 days a week), early married, missed some pills and freaked out. Googled something and found JM and stayed. That was 7 yrs ago!
