pregnant? I'm not pregnant, but this and the homebirth forum are like the first places I come. I love it and can't get enough! After my son's birth I am like a birth junky. If I could buy copies of the new Ina May book and hand them out to every pregnant woman I ever see, I would be so happy! and we are trying for #2, so someday I'll hopefully be here in a more "official" capacity!


So, who else here is just a lurker?

Hi owensmom!

I'm a total birth junkie! I love Ina May's new book but I've had to put it away for the time being because it makes me too obsessed with getting pregnant. I can't force myself to stop lurking here though!

Oh LawyORmama, we are pitiful aren't we? I just read the Ina May book and I almost called my midwife to tell her that I wish I was preggo so she could help me birth my baby!

Sheacoby, that totally counts - I know all about the wishin'!



All right - who else?!

Me! I've been a lurker here since I first started coming to mothering. We are also TTC #2. I love babies, pregnancy and birth. I tell myself that I hang out here to help answer questions and give advice to first time moms (I wish I had this place when I was preggers) so I'm totally here for a "higher" purpose. Yeah Right! Birth Junkie all the way!!

Not pregnant either...not even close :

I love it here though. I love talking baby names. I love feeding off the pregnant mamas' anticipation and excitement. The homebirth forum is unbelievable too and right now I just have to live vicarioulsy because I CAN'T have a baby right now and not for awhile....sigh...

Glad to know I'm not the only one though I was sure I wasn't :LOL

If there are any other not yet mamas here, come on over to our tribe in FYT!!!

You caught me- I don't normally lurk in this forum, but I'm trying to think positive this 2ww, and I thought this would be the place to do it!

Me too. I go to the Homebirth forum first, the Pregnancy forum second, and sometimes that's all. Probably 90% of my posts are in these two forums. My last was born 20 months ago.

ME TOO!!!

I originally came to MDC as an intactivist wanting to educate/share info with people struggling with the decision to circ, or answer ?'s about being intact. Then I started going around to other forums, and I just love this one!!

I thought i was the only one who isn't a mamma here! I love this forum. It gives me hope, ykwim?

Thanks for letting us hang out!!!

somebody post a link to that FYT for wannabe moms!

Count me in! I always come to see what will I be feeling like at each stage of pregnancy, like if I had conceived that month when I thought it was a possibility, how would I be feeling this month...
Then I get acquainted with the mommas and their stories, so follow threads. I always read birth stories, they are the best!
