I have sent a pm to a couple of mamas and I thought maybe I would mention it to everyone...I should have done it before, but I was so worried about scaring everyone and taking away from their excitement :(

 

 

 you may want to crop your pics....they include your full name and the location of your ultrasound. this is a public board and I would not want any weirdos looking at it.

 

 

I don't want to scare you, but when I was pg with my kiddos I was on Ivillage and both times there were woman whose babies were stolen- one straight from the womb- and I could not help but think that following a ddc club could show you how to mimic a pg easily and the ultra sound pics could lead you to where and when a woman who is due to give birth will be.

 

I really do apologize if this has freaked you out...

I noticed that a few years ago on another board, and thought it was kind of risky as well. Since then I crop my pictures so they don't show any personal info. Thanks for the warning, Saoirse, you're right, it is absolutely a safety issue! There are so many creepy people out there, you can't be too careful unfortunately.

I would also highly, highly recommend putting some sort of watermark on your ultrasound around the part that would be most interested in stealing. Even if it's just date and your baby's nickname.

 

Also, never, never post the name of the birth center or hospital or your doctor's office on public forums. NEVER!
