How many Just Mommies do we still have with us?
 
I know lately I haven't really been 'active' on this board; my life has been crazy hectic since we started moving before the baby was born. Then after David we have been trying to get ourselves established in a new city and even now....we have boxes yet to be unpacked.

Every chance I have free time (which isn't much), I check in with JM to see how everyone is doing and I have noticed a very disturbing trend. While I used to be sifting through pages and pages of posts to 'catch up' when I returned, I am surprised if I even have one page to sift through. It looks to me as if our numbers have dwindled down substantially after our LO's arrived. While I realize it's probably because everyone is just too busy right now....newborns are a LOT of work! I do also realize many are only connected via Facebook or other Social Media. While I do not have many JM's on my FB FL, if sent a private message I will add anyone who is interested in being connected daily with me (I am generally accessing FB on my cell only and occasionally on the web). :)

So I wonder how many of us are still 'active' on this board....does anyone know?

I'm still active! I read through a lot more then I post though. I'm counting like 8-9 that are pretty active still counting myself.... It has died down a lot since our LO's were born.

Yeah I sort of figured it would slow down once we had little ones to wrangle with. JM also could really use an easy mobile app. If they were smart they would invest in one. I'm hardly ever on my desktop anymore so FB is more where I keep up with some of the moms I've become friendly with

I still check in daily while Parker naps, but I also more read through than make posts. I totally agree on the app idea, I'd be on here a lot more if I could use my phone! :)

I still try and jump on JM once a day, but like everyone else I read more than I post.

I'm still here I check in at least every other day but I do read more than I post and I have morning sickness so that's another reason too

I'm here. I usually check in when I'm at work or up in the middle of the night with max. I'll admit though, I'm sad to see this board slow down so much. Our ddc was my safe haven for so long!!

Thank you to all who have responded, I am so happy to see that so many of us are still here (even if not posting regularly). It's good there are some of us still here, I would hate to lose contact with you guys - we have such a remarkable group of amazing ladies here! Very rarely do you see such a collective of kind, helpful and upbeat people in one place (especially online). It's refreshing that we're not losing contact with one another even after our munchkins have arrived. Thank goodness for Facebook, too, it's a great way to keep in contact when we're on our cell phones until Just Mommies creates an app for us. :D

I'll keep adding whomever would like to keep in touch via Facebook, for the requests I have already received I have added you; thanks for the friend request invite. :)

I'm here also...and I know I should be posting more but like everyone else, I'm also busy adjusting to life with a baby! I read all the time, every post, but also like others, I am primarily mobile so I don't post as often.

For those that have mentioned JM having an app, I think we all agree that would be awesome (and believe me, the admins have heard it!). But until that happens, there is Forum Runner. That's what I use and its pretty darned good! Way better for mobile posting that just using the regular site IMO!

Oh, and I think I've got most everyone on FB but if not, feel free to add me:

I'm here, I usually get on at some point during work hours (oops), but I'm on facebook WAY more often. My son's playroom pretty much moved to facebook exclusively and it's just so easy to keep up on there.

I'm here on occasion. I read but don't post much either. I'd friend people on Facebook but not sure how to find you all...I'm not super tech savvy...

Here, too, reading more than I post. Even though it's not brimming with activity, I still find our DDC/Playroom a really helpful spot, so I'm really grateful for those who've stuck around and who pop in from time to time!
