*** Group setting changed from "secret" to "closed" so anyone can request to join. ***

*** Group name changed to MDC Mamas so other FB friends won't know what's up ;) ***

 

Feel free to join!  Privacy settings are "secret" so it shouldn't show up anywhere on our profiles so the word won't get out ;)  Another way for us all to stay connected! 

 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/124441584312990 

 

Please let me know if you are having trouble with this link or with a request to join.  This is the first "secret" group I have started, so not sure if the request to join works the same way.  I can change it to a closed group if need be.

Thinking the secret setting is not going to work for people I am not already FB friends with.  Is everyone okay if this is changed to a closed group instead?  I can change the group name and take out the due date club part???

Changing it to closed is fine with me, as long as the name changes. Or we could all just become your friends ;)

Okay, thanks! 

 

Just changed the setting to a closed group and the name to MDC Mamas with no group description.  If there are suggestions for a different name, lay them on me!!!

Cool, I'm gonna join. Will it show my friends? I don't want it to. I still haven't announced my pregnancy. I'm waiting a couple of months before I say anything.

MDC mamas may be innocuous sounding if you already have children, but this is my first, so I don't want that to show yet.

What about just having it be MDC? Most people wouldn't know that the letters stood for Mothering Dot Com...so it's fairly innocuous.

I am bummed too!  I really enjoyed this DDC until FB stole the thunder.  I'm just careful with my personal info, access to full names etc to feel good about the FB account.  Maybe I'll check out Feb DDC.  What one are you leaning towards, MommyBecky?

I'm participating in the FB group, but I'm kind of disappointed too. I find it a lot harder to use. No way to see where you left off within a thread, and while threads with new posts are in their own section, you better finish them before you close the page because it won't still be in that "new" section next time, even if you didn't get to read that far down.

8inTugleyWood- I've been all over the map with DDC. For a while, I was looking at January a lot, probably because my SIL was due at the end of January (but her wait is now over!) Lately, I too have been leaning towards February. The only problem is, this may make me more impatient as we get towards the end here and they are all having their babies!

I feel the same way.  I was reading lots of the interesting topics on the feb ddc, and I'm due early March so I could have a Feb baby, but have had it in my mind that I would be one of the first instead of the last to deliver.  Just looking at their topics shows how much closer they are and I don't want to feel impatient.

 

Maybe there are more of us missing the chat here than we think.  Lets just start a chat thread to talk about anything and see what the response is.  It doesn't need to be huge, just not a ghost town.
