I think part of the reason that there are so many views is that we're all a little nutso and look at the same threads 5,000,000 times

Guilty of that!!!

Also, I was a little wary of posting on everything while I was PG... like I was reminding you all that I was pregnant and you weren't. Maybe we have some grads that linger, but feel silly posting?

Maybe - but the grads are who keep us going. So they shouldn't feel guilty at all. In fact, they are the ones we get our information from so we need them more then ever.

I'm kinda glad to hear you say that, Gretchen. Sometimes I wonder if I should be here...not doing TTCMA right now and we might not again, so I am always wondering if people are reading my posts going "what is she still doing here."

No Melissa - no one thinks that. Seriously if it wasn't for grads and their insight and help we would be the blind leading the blind. Gosh I hope no one takes that wrong it's just a figure of speech - I adore blind people. I really wish more will post. TTCMA Grads not blind people that is.

I remember when you had a blinkie that said TTCMA is your home. I don't think that changes because you're not MA right now or maybe ever again. I think other boards including DDC don't always "get" where a TTCMA'er really comes from.

We would stalk you Melissa

I like having the grads... Sometimes it feels so hopeless since we don't get near as many BFP as "normal" forums. Seeing the grads is a reminder that there is hope!
And the experience is priceless! I don't mind asking Dr. Goggle, but i would rather hear it from someone who has btdt that i know.
(and then there is your POAS thread what would we do without it? )

Gretchen- I don't post that much out here on the main board because I pretty much went strait to IVF and didn't get to know everyone here. I check what's going on occasionally and post when there is stuff going on with those of you I do know. Now I don't know that it's really appropriate to introduce myself to everyone here. I also look at things I've already read but didn't realize I already looked at it before which will increase the views.

Thanks, ladies I'm glad to hear that I'm not a bother or "that grad who won't just go away"

Besides, watching you ladies get your BFPs after your struggles is kind of addicting. I just can't quit you

I lurk, but not often. Maybe once or twice a month. I like to check in on the few people I know and answer questions if I can. I rarely post a response though. I wish there wasn't anyone left that I remember.

Lurker here! TTCMA will always have a special place in my heart! Took 2 years to conceive my DD (1 year of TTCMA. BFP on 2nd Follistim cycle) and took over a year to conceive our DS. We had actually given up the idea of having a second baby after we had 5 failed Follistim cycles in 2011. (got our BFP with the AMIGOS study which we had no hope in it actually working. I just couldn't give up an opportunity to TTCMA for free)
Although I don't post much on JM...I do lurk often and am rooting for each and every one of you ( my heart aches when things aren't successful or there are bumps in the road and get all giddy with excitement when I see someone overcome infertility and get their BFP!)

OK you got me! I lurk sometimes too

I like to check on everyone and see how things are going. I was here for a long time during IVF, then 2 IUIs... the last IUI is what worked for us.

I think about you guys a lot..

I don't mind the lurkers, I think of it as a giant cheering section for all of us.

And grads, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing from you and hearing what you are up to.

Kelli, omg, how are you 17 weeks? Are you finding out the gender??
Sarah, I somehow missed that you had your little one! I'd love to see pics if you are willing to share.
Celry- omg, your girls are so big!!
Melissa- you can't leave. I'll just stalk you back. p.s. more twin photos please?

new grads- we love updates. seriously. you give us hope.
