Yeah.. I know it's alot different nowadays.  I was back here in  2002-2003 with a pregnancy (that I lost) and hung out on the M/C board.. then again in 2004-2005 with my previous DD.  It's alot different.  They just recently switched to their own Server (a few weeks ago) and everything is new and being figured out.  there are bugs and still some cleaning up to do.  The IVillage team is in New York and still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  A few lost homes..   Just alot to deal with.

Have some patience and hang in there with us here.  There are some great mamas that need that support and friendship right now.  :) 

and yeah.. the siggy thing bothers me too.  I couldnt post one either saaying it was too long when it obviously wasn't.  Just another bug they're working on

Hi Wendy....

I used to have another Ivillage account a few years ago.....this new format seems very cold and plain.  Am I missing something? I cant even read peoples bios or see anything personal.  When I tried to make a signature, I kept getting an error message saying it was too long.....when it clearly wasnt.  Any help or suggestions would be apprecialted. Thanks for the warm welcome.

I am having a few symptoms which prompted me to buy a test in the first place.  I just went off bc the last weekend of Sept and after watching the famous Dr Oz program I really thought it was a slim chance I might get pregnant after a year or so....lol. My pants already are extremely tight, my boobs are a bit tender.....and I Am so TIRED!!! I have literally nodded off in class while working with kids at my job (yikes). My husband and I just got married in Aug. and he relocated from Canada to marry me. (He hasnt even found a job yet).  We just keep looking at each other with a goofy smile thinking THIS IS CRAZY!!  Our families will FREAK, but then they will be happy for us (well, the non teens anyhow).  We plan to break the news on Christmas.....if they dont figure it out before then.  I am really nervous about an early mc....how did you feel?
