  • I was gonna say congratulations! I'm not one of the mean ones & I thought it was getting better since you have to earn the anon answer. Sorry for the bashing you got, don't listen, its not like they know you in RL anyways so why does what they say matter? Enjoy your pregnancy & ignore the less than nice stuff you hear from everybody.

  • I used to see more rude people than I do now. Some people just think they can say anything to anyone.

  • Congrats on your pregnancy! :o)

    I have been on CM for quite some time now and I am still shocked at the way some woman speak to other mothers on this site. Some of the comments you received were indeed harsh and completely uncalled for. A pregnancy test or a trip to your doctor for confirmation of a pregnancy is always the best way, but there is no harm in asking for the opinions of other mothers. Don't let the blatant rudeness of some woman ruin the wonderful resource that CM is. Let the negativity roll right off your back.

  • First of all, congrats on the baby. That is exciting news and don't let anything get to you. I think that some people are so tired of seeing the same questions over and over again. I know that you came here looking for advice, but being pregnant is not something we can give advice on. You just need to take a test. Normally, I am a person who does not take answers seriously, but the woman who said that she hopes your baby dies, that is beyond disgusting. I would have reported her with out thinking. There is no reason to say something that horrible. Good luck.

  • The "I might be pregnant" questions in all of it's forms are hot button questions on this site because a dollar store PG test is a better way to figure it out. It is such a big deal that when they were asking for ideas on what categories to add to this section that it was suggested there be a section just for that question and the inevitable answers.There is however no excuse for comments like that. Congratulations on your little one.
