Can anyone suggest a nice site for expectant mothers aside from TheBump.com?
I think there is like a babycenter.com
Is this for personal research?
What to expect when you're expecting has a forum.
sheknows.com. That is where I "met" a lot of great ladies after Em was born.
I joined babyandbump and it has been extremely helpful.
babycenter.com is pretty awesome. I was glued to it when I was pregnant.
I have always joined babyzone with all 3. I'm still friends on facebook with many of them.

Thank you all for the suggestions! I tried baby and bump but I'm having issues registering. The site kept telling me to wait for an email to complete my registration so I could post but it never came. I joined another site (can't remember the name) but I found it a little overwhelming because the boards were vast (I'm talking 5,000+ subscribers per board) and many of the threads would have hundreds of thousands of responses. I prefer a more intimate site like to pregnant equivalent to A to Z.
I recommend the forums at Babycenter. It's a large group, but you can make the experience smaller and more personalized by joining a birth board. Just search for the month and year of your due date, like July 2015 Birth Club or whatever. You'll immediately be connected with other parents at exactly the same stage you're in. Although my baby was born a while ago, I still participate in my birth board. It's nice to talk to others whose babies are doing the same things as mine.
I also used/use BabyCenter. There is a lot of drama, but there's still a lot of good information.
Just don't mention breastfeeding, and you'll like BabyCenter ok. There are some judgmental mamas out there...
I've been reading the forums on babycenter, but they are a bit drama filled so I've just lurked and haven't made an account
