I'm hoping we can revitalize this thread. There have been a few BFPs in this group lately and I know the ladies are all looking for a place where we can express our joy and our fear with others who know what we're going through.

Mods - any way to edit the original sticky so we can add new mamas to the list? I'm guessing that the original author is not checking in a year later! :giggle2:
