I planned my wedding on TK in 2003-2004. I moved to TN and then found a local parenting site. We moved and I found myself pregnant while all my friends had "old" kids like me. So I found my BMB on TB and then migrated here.

I'm a little bit of a creeper. I lurked on TB BMB boards, then there was the exodus and I continued to lurk there. I didn't really join my BMBs because both kids were due at the end of the month so I felt like everything I had to ask or share was old news. I ended up joining in on my local board but I saw there was a working mom group here so I started coming here too. I have a hard time keeping up with two boards, so i don't really post regularly here but I enjoy the topics.
Funny BMB thing. DS was due in mid-May. I actually posted a couple of times on the BMB... and then DS was born on April 30. Lol. So it felt utterly too awkward and weird to jump on and say "Hi! Can I invade your board since DS decided to be 3 weeks early and came in the wrong month?"

I started on TK when DH and I were engaged. Then I kind of left for a while because I wasn't super interested in any of the boards for married people. I got on TB when I was PG for DS and migrated here when there was the fiasco a few years ago.
I lurked on the TB when I was pregnant with DD in 2012. I posted some on DS's BMB in 2014 and joined the migration when everyone came here. I was a creepy WM lurker for a long time before I started posting
I used TK for wedding planning around 2003-2004, then had a loooong hiatus, then found TB when TTC in 2010, joined the BMBs in 2013. I followed those ladies to FB when TB imploded, but came to TCF because I like to talk and didn't want to blow up the facebook threads.
I joined my BMB in 2013, then when I lost the baby I joined TTCaL and PGaL and my new BMB. The BMB moved to FB and I followed over there until a major drama issue a few months ago, the group split and I am in both, but no where near as active. When the drama went down on TB I moved over here and posted on PAL some, then on Special Needs but never really felt like I fit in there because DS has medical needs, so then I drifted over to WP. I intro'd and then just kinda lurked a lot. Really trying to join in more now as I feel like I know all of you, and you are like "who are you?"!

I joined TB when I was pregnant and probably lurked/posted all over the place, including TB's version of this board, until my son was born in 2012. I left work then, and spent most of my time in the Cloth Diapering board. That place became pretty close knit and I followed them over to TCF. Figure I should start to dip a toe in here now that I'm starting to work again but also thinking about retraining in another field.
ETA: is it ok for this post to count as my intro? Don't feel like starting another thread
I started on a different site specific to my infertility but they didn't have a Working Parents board so I didn't really fit in after the babies came. I stumbled upon this site and really found all of your advice helpful and relatable. I've been a long time lurker and trying to post more.

It was the time when I was trying very hard to conceive but somehow was unable to do so after so many tries. So we got panicked and rushed to my doctor who asked me for some ultrasounds and blood tests. Eventually she broke the news to me that I have PCOS and that it was little challenging to conceive due to this condition. I couldn’t regain my strength to ask her about this and just left the clinic all depressed and sad. It was like me and my husband were shattered and just could not tolerate the fact that I might never get pregnant. But then he became my hope and strength and starting checking online the ways to get rid of pcos and to conceive with PCOS. So it was not me rather my husband who got me started on these forums and communities. Both of us got immense help and support from these forums and many tips as well. So we put them into use and finally got pregnant. It is like a dream come true and now here I am with a 3 year old daughter who is pretty much like my husband. So you know now why I joined these forums and like me so many other women go through pcos so I share the wisdom that I got from these forums. For that I shall always be indebted. And now also I learn new things and experiences which is again a very fulfilling experience. I have also recommended few groups to fellow mothers which provide accurate insights to various health and wellness issues. Majority of them being around little babies and new mommies which again brings out more knowledge. So it has been very helpful always and that’s why I prefer staying here and talking to such beautiful mommies.
