This group is for ranting and raving about all the big and little things that happen during conception, pregnancy and child-rearing, and the other life bits that might be hormonally charged during this time.
Please be aware that political or cultural hot topics will be moved to an off-topic forum.
6 facts about my pregnancy:
1. I was induced because the dr wanted to get out on time. She was only 30 minutes late.
2. I was only in active labour for 30 minutes
3. I found out I was pregnant the day of my fathers funeral.
4. I went into labour on my due date.
5. My mother guessed when my daughter would be born. Right down to the minute.
6. Because I didn't like my birth experience at the hospital I'm going to school to become a midwife and a ibclc.
Welcome to Pregnancy Raves and Rants, a place to brag and boast or whine and vent. With such a diverse user base from all corners of the globe, it is inevitable that at some point people will disagree. When using the community feature of Alt12 apps, we ask that you follow a few basic guidelines, to help keep the community a safe, supportive and harmonious environment, as it is intended.
If you find yourself always "battling" another user, you might wish to use the "Ignore a User" feature. You will find instructions on how to use the feature in the Announcements forum. It is not ok to post insulting, defamatory, or abusive messages to another member of the Community in any situation, including retaliation
The topics of deleted posts or threads and banned accounts are considered private subjects between the original author and Alt12. Further threads on these topics will be deleted without warning. If you have a criticism, a suggestion, or a question about your own account, please send us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you come across a user who you believe is being less than truthful in their posts or who is posting in a way that does not seem to make sense, please do not engage in a war of words or "call-out" the member on the forums as this too is seen as a form of harassment. Please email email@example.com with the users name and your concerns, and the account will be investigated.
On the forums for our applications, it is not acceptable to request or provide private personal contact information. This includes email addresses, real life addresses, and phone numbers. Certain application and program profiles are also not acceptable for posting as the applications/programs expose personally identifying contact information.
Because of the many different ages and maturity levels of the users in our forums, when it comes to photos, the standard is that body parts that would be covered by a censor bar on network TV in the United States should they be exposed should also be covered for photos on the Alt12 communities. We call this "swimsuit" coverage. The purpose of the policy is not to censor nursing mothers, but to create an iron-clad and simple rule that everyone can understand as fair when choosing what they will share visually online. Exposure of a nipple or of a whole breast without an article of clothing covering at least 30% of the flesh, even during breastfeeding, does not meet this photo standard.
For more information on the Community Guidelines, please see the sticky post at the top of the Announcements section.
If you have made it this far, thank you for reading,
I wasn't allowed to watch Barney for some reason, still don't know why lol.
Also what's something you don't/ won't let your kids watch? Why don't you let them watch it?
My son is only 16 days old & I don't really know what I won't have him watch (if there is anything.)
