What do you think would increase the traffic on our board?

......I know this dose not help but I never understand why more gals dont come over here from our sister board after they get their bfp?!?! the expecting clubs never seemed quite right for me so it was a no brainer for me to come here where I know I am understood. hummmm.........

Such a good point...I meant to include that question. What do you think keeps people from coming over from the IVF board? I posted something over there with a link here but I'm not sure what else to do....

Well Sarah (nlhousewify) once said that she believes that once some get a bfp they may just want to enjoy a "normal" pregnancy". Its a good point and I am sure that some feel that way but for most of us we will never feel "normal" lol. I know with my 1st pregnancy I was so scared to post because I was worried about getting my hopes up or jinxing myself

Yes I'm fresh out of ideas for luring people over :) I for one, find comfort in women who know how hard it was to get to this point. The expecting clubs are always bitching about how much it sucks to be pregnant...grrrr

I think that's why I never clicked on the "pregnancy" board - I really don't relate to other pregnant women and their woes. The non-IF pregnant women I know are already talking about their next child like they're booking a hair cut!

Hi girls. I am also newly here because I didn't realize it existed. I went to the May 2012 expecting group, but that wasn't for me! I found many ladies that were frustrated at being pregnant again, and others who would whine about the things that I am relishing. Don't get me wrong, I didn't *enjoy* morning sickness or the day-long nausea, but each day I had it, I knew that my baby was healthy and growing! :)

So excited we have two new girls in our group! Both preggos too =) Welcome Mindy & chi_gal!!! It's amazing how much non-IFers take for granted. At least here we can gush over every detail and know that each other understands why it's so flippen cool *lol*

Hopefully the post on the IVF board will let some others grads know we're here too. Maybe I'll try to post something about the board every month or two so that people don't forget there's somewhere other than an EC to go to when their IVF works =)
