ohhh you have such adorable boys I won't link photos as I like my privacy, but when I joined DD was 3 and DS was 2 months old. I was going thru hell with his reflux and come looking for support. Thus my username lol
DD is now 8 and DS is 5, and we've been trying to add to the brood for a while now. I've had such amazing support in that time from girls that have picked me up and pushed me on thru a couple of losses.
I'm also not around heaps now but your post has made me all sentimental lol

OJ I can't believe how grown up your boys are It honestly feels like yesterday you annouced your pregnancy with G, and I remember your signature about trying to get back into your sexy tight party pants, and then Mr L graced you with his presence Unbelievable
I've been around here for a while. Had my times away with the sh!ts but always found my way back I joined when my 4th bubba was a few months old. I've had 3 more kids since then I blame BH
I have met the most amazing people, and am still yet to meet more. I have found life long friends and people that mean more to me than anything. People that have been there for me more than my own family have.
Chicks that have walked with me when I've had babies, battled cancer, had a partial hysterectomy, radiation This place is like my right hand, I'd be so totally lost without it.
Awwwww listen to me all sentimental and emotional
And despite what many people think, us Pink Chicks are freaking ASWESOME

I joined in 07 when DS1 was a few months old for some help with his sleep hung around because it was a good way to pass the endless hours breastfeeding, 5 years later I'm still here breastfeeding plus every forum needs some crunchieness

Yep definitely a sentimental / unable to fully let go thing for me too the hub was a huge support for me for a long time. And for awhile I was stalked on here (who knows I possibly still am haha) so for privacy reasons I won't post any photos but wow! Time flies.

Chanel was around 6 months old when I joined in early 2006. She looked something like this:
Now, she's 7 and looks like this...

I joined in 2009 just before we started TTC. Made some great friends in the TTC threads (some of whom I have met in RL and still talk to regularly). Was given so much support through my TTC/IVF/miscarriage journeys and through my successful pregnancy with DS. Met a great group of local mummies who I meet with once a week. And now I'm doing it all over again with our surprise natural bub. Hoping to make more friends and get support as I venture into the world of 2 under 2!

I joined when Elle was 6 weeks old and I was struggling with her silent reflux.
Now she is 3 and very much a big girl. It's hard to believe she was ever so small!
Then in 2010 I got pregnant with our second child, ended up with placenta previa, hospital bed rest, and got lots of support from so many hubbers.
Sam was born in Jan 2011 at 35 weeks.
And now he is a big boy! Only weaned last month, so we breastfed for 19 months and he sleeps in a big bed and is showing interest in TT
I sometimes wonder why I come back to the hub and tbh I don't very often. I'm out of the baby/birth/breastfeeding stage, I am almost passed nappies, I don't have to worry about weaning or pregnancy. DH has had the old chop chop so that's done.
I think I come back for the friendships and the connections I've made. I come back because I get bored.

Oh all this is making me all teary & sentimental!
I joined in 2007, DH & I were living in Perth, with no friends & found out unexpectedly i was pregnant... I joined to tell the world our wonderful news, only to sadly loose our baby at 13 weeks on my bathroom floor.
I was then thrust into a world of grief & if not for the Loss group I dont know what would have happened to me. I was in a dark place & those girls kept me going... two of them are still VERY dear friends to me who I have met IRL numerous times despite living in different parts of teh country.
Then I fell pregnant with Poppy & my due in group too remain some of my closest mates.
I then had the privilege of becoming a moderator & annoying everyone - which meant MORE AWESOME GIRLS!!! All a lovely bunch who are very dear to my heart indeed. They have always been there for support when DH went away to sea in the Navy for long periods, and especially worried for me when I went through Cyclone Yasi!
Since having Harper nearly 18 months ago I have struggled to find time to get on here as much as I used to but it doesn't matter here on BH.
We are a community, a bunch of mates all sharing in the same and different things, which makes this the perfect place to come even if you have just 5 minutes!
I love this place & it hurts my heart when people say bad things about it. There are always rough times to go with the good times, but that is all part & parcel of being a family
Love each & every one of you

I love this thread- I love seeing how all the little babies we were introduced to at birth have grown. I've read all their birth stories, shared with you all the miseries and joys and it's so great so many are still here!
Gret u don't know if I ever told you, but you were an inspiration to me during pregnancy and the newborn days. I just did not know a soul with twins and you were the only one on Bh who I knew of that posted openly and honestly about parenting twins. I told myself that if you could do it and go back for more, then it must get easier. So sincerely- thank you!

I joined when my DD1 was giving me grief and I was looking for answers to handle her behaviour. Shortly after was pregnant with DD2 and this place was AHHH-MAZING for me. My DIG were a lovely bunch of ladies and we all encouraged and supported each other and stuck around as we waited for babies to arrive. And now again I had another great DIG for DS. Its good to go through things at the same time with people you've had almost 9months to chat to, they aren't just usernames they are people who you've got to know, yknow.
Its good to come back and offer advice and support to new mums or expectant parents who have no idea. You realize 'my babies are growing up I can tell people what I did, what I went through and maybe they'll be there one day going I'm so glad I read that ladies post about this'. You just never know.
Why am I still here though? Because I like to talk to people with common interests. I have kids. A whole forum full of people who have kids, want kids, know kids, teach kids.... seems pretty logical.
