Hey all ! I've been a member on CM for a couple of hours now, and I've already seen some very negativtiy on the site. Some groups are dubbed not so nice things, and then I just was introduced to the whirlwind that is the CMTHRONE blog. I was just wondering...is this the "norm" around here at cm? I'm not saying that it all has to be unicorns and rainbows , but I guess my first impression of the site is not like i thought orginally.

I joined this site with the intentions of this being a uplifiting and positive site where mature (and I use that word loosely) moms could get together. I've seen a lot of good on this site, but a lot of bad things as well that I feel have no place on this site.

Is it just me? Best to ignore it?

I've noticed that too. There's this one mom in particular who seems to disagree with everything I say... No matter what it is! I ignore it, but that's easier said than done.

On a completely different note: anyone else think 'cervical mucus' when they see 'cm'? Or am I just really odd that way? (I'm 6 months preggers btw, could have something to do with that!)

But welcome! You're more than welcome to message me if you want, I do my best to keep things light!

depends on the group. i try to steer clear from certain groups but some have really interesting topics that may concern you.  when going to a group get a fell of the subject first before doing anything, my names Amia btw :)

There are always Negative Nancy's on this site who like to bring people down and say bitchy things to air out their own frustrations. I think it's funny because you can always tell who the disgruntled moms are who hate their lives. Gotta ignore them.

 Yeah, I understand there's going to be disagreements amongst people but some members can be really immature about things .

And no lol, you're not weird at all lol. My period calendar uses cm for cervical mucus so I see it that way too! hahaa. Congratulations on your pregnancy! Are you having a boy or a girl?

Thanks for the warm welcome :) !

There are some groups in which it all seems to be who can be the biggest beotch.  I steer clear of those ones myself.  This group is not like that.  How old are you?  The 30 Something Group is great too.

I mostly come on here and confessions for the entertainment. If I needed any support I would go to the single moms or 30 something moms I'm a member of. Find a specific to you group of you want support, these are not the groups for that.
