What else do you read on MDC? Just curious. I read here mostly, and also the general "I'm Pregnant" boards, and in my local tribe.

I used to frequent all the forums two years ago, but I've cut down... I go here, the Oct DDC, midwives/doulas and the unassisted birth area. Sometimes I lurk in other places, like birth & beyond, but I find it really mainstream.

I've also had to cut down my MDC time. Cutting out TAO (talk amongst ourselves) helped a LOT! I frequent the trading post and I'm pretty active in the Running Mamas thread in "Fitness and Weight Management". I check in on my area in Finding Your Tribe often, also. When I need a good recipe, "Good Eating" is awesome.
The diapering boards were what originally brought me here, but I can't get sucked into that again. Especially not when I mostly do cloth to save $ and hanging with those ladies gets expensive!

I always read the Pregnancy and Birth boards (I like to peek in all the DDC's ). I've also been checking out the baby wearing and diapering forums. I also like to hang around the frugal/finance forum from time to time. Often I just hit the new posts link at the top and see what's going on in lots of forums.

The Gentle Discipline board is what brought me here, but I haven't been reading there much at all lately.

I pretty much only post in this DDC though, I'm not really very outgoing on message boards

I lurk around alot...here, the I'm Pregnant, Birth and Beyond, GD, Vax, Circ, and Nutrition forums mostly, though sometimes I wander over to the Crafts, Natural Home and BodyCare, and TAO forums too.

I read the Preg and Birth, Sew and Embroidery, Homebirth, Nutrition, sometimes the Vacs and Circ ones and I used to do the Swaps but those are on hold for a while.

I always scan New Posts and look for interesting titles, but that can get you in trouble if you wander into a group where you don't belong.

I like here, Pregnancy, and occasionally unassisted childbirth. I have to break from the UC site every once in a while because for some reason I can't just bite my tongue on there I scan New Posts for interesting titles when I'm bored <read: supposed to be working> but mostly just lurk in those ones. And I like the NFL part too, been hanging out there lately. I'm thinking that all this will curb once baby is on this side of my womb; I'll likely be a little busier!

I spend a lot of time on the following boards:

-Toddlers
-Gentle Discipline
-The Case Against Circumcision
-I'm Pregnant

When baby #2 comes, I'll probably add Breastfeeding and Babywearing to that list.
