I found Ivillage message boards when I was looking for a place for some support when TTC. My screen name is my first initial (K for Kara) and my middle name beth, plus the year I was born 85.
Well, I found iVillage back in '99 somehow, back when we had Parentsoup, Parentsplace, and a few other channels, I believe. In fact, I have a Parentsoup mouse pad here somewhere (or, it may have not made the cut in the move, LOL, who knows, but I do recall seeing it somewhat recently). I think maybe I saw an ad for it on tv. Anyhoo, it was during my 3rd pregnancy and then I miscarried, so I was a regular on the MC board and then became CL of that, then the July 2000 EC, a slew of other boards.
So it was a natural thing to come back and find the August EC board when I found out we were pregnant because iVillage is such a great resource and the best place online IMO to share experiences with other women who are going through similar experiences.
Of course, my moniker is easy -- Brie is my nickname (Sabrina) and K is my last initial. It's the only name I've had here on iVillage.
I found IV when I was pregnant with my first, and a lot of us are very good friends on FB now.
I found ivillage board when I was pregnant with my third child 6 years ago. Over 40 members are still close on facebook, and I like getting advice and hearing stories from them.
