Thanks ladies for your input on how to run this thread. I have let your new moderator Byroney know you are enjoying this thread, and hopefully she'll be able to keep it going for you. Particularly since all she really needs to do is post it for you. She is great and I know she'll do what she can here to keep things going for each of you.
I promise I am leaving you all in the best hands! EmmaView Thread

I wanted to let you know that starting Monday you'll be getting a very wonderful new moderator. If you have been on the TTC 12 month community or a few others in the past that she's moderated you might recognize Byroney. She is very good at TTC.
Don't worry I am not leaving WebMD we are just shuffling things around a bit to share some of the work load. You guys have become very close to my heart, and I really do hope to see each of you graduate to the pregnancy community and then eventually the parenting communities! However, I know while you are here you are going to be in wonderful hands!
I had a question for you, everyone's updates change day to day. I have done 3 of these weekly updates. 2 open ended ones, like this and 1 with where everyone was at. Of course the open ended ones are easier for me, because each of you can come in and fill us in. But which do you guys prefer, do you like the open ended ones or would you prefer I do the research each week and put where the last update we had on each of you was?
I think everyone has great intentions but just don't get the troubles others have. I am so sorry you were hurt by your hair stylist. I think it's true people assume those without children have made that choice rather than that they are doing all they can to have children.
Hang in there and thank you for sharing your story! BTW did you know, since I see that you have a furbaby that we have a great Pet's Community . Just incase you wanted to spread your wings a bit . Just don't forget to come back, those pet boards can get a little addicting!
I think just leaving it at "we are trying" is a good option. I had some friends who had those parents who just wouldn't stop asking and in the end they had to tell them, it was hurtful. Hopefully the "we are trying" will turn into a very soon! I am hopeful for you anyway!
