In appreciation of the people here.

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the kindness, care and respect shown to everyone who comes here. This is my first forum and inspired by my positive experience I joined an Australian pregnancy/motherhood forum. Well!!! My goodness, I have never seen such foul mouthed replies and nastiness. I was stunned, they are sooo awful to each other and you have to wade through tonnes of this garbage to find a useful post. It has made me see DC in even more glowing terms and appreciate you all so much more. (Now all we need is a pregnancy thread and I'll never need to go anywhere else ever again!!)

I have found some forums like that too. And DC is definately the best!!
Anytime you want to talk pregnancy, just ask or talk away. Lots of mothers here and I remember some things LOL

mrsmac - congratulations! how far along are you? I have never been to any other threads so I have nothing to compare this to. I do know that I love the information here, but more so than that, I really feel like I have friends here.

I have a 19 mos old and a 13 year old - so I click with two groups - those with teens and those with toddlers (i know, what the heck was I thinking, right? Well, long story short, my toddler is my "blessing", if you know what I mean).

Would love to talk pregnancy and baby stuff with you - like texasgirl said, ask away!!

This is by far a very special place for the reasons you just found out mrsmac. The people here truely are friends and are alwyas open to new friends joining the group. We all try to respect each other and it shows. I have seen many other sites (some cooking and some not) and not come close to comparing to DC. This really is a family!

Yes by all means start a pregnancy thread. There are ton of mothers (oh wait that doesn't sound good. Never say ton and mother in the same sentence ). There are lots of mothers here and fathers as well. We have a number of people who have recently given birth as well. And as you know, everyone here loves to talk
