Don't ask 'am I pregnant?'!! Otherwise no! Welcome :-)

Welcome to mumsnet! Are you newly pregnant? If so you can join the relevant anti natal thread under 'becoming a parent' if you like.

There are lots of acronyms people use and I think there's a list somewhere but no idea where!

Maybe steer clear of posting in am I being unreasonable (AIBU) until you've got a feel for it! It can get... Heated!

Take everything with a big pinch of salt and a sense of humour. Don't let anything upset you and to enjoy your time here.

Don't ask if you're pregnant - unless you're u sure about reading the results of a pregnancy test you've taken and have uploaded a photograph of.

Oh one other thing, don't stick any posts just for a service or a product, even that has benefitted you and you're sharing to help other mumsnetters because it will be seen as advertising...unless it's in response to someones thread and you're helping them with advice!

Shame but thats the rules. I got hands very kindly wrapped about a post I put up couple days ago adn it was deleted.. eeeek smile

Anyway WELCOME!!!!!! Some lovely people on here with really helpgul timing advice, hope you enjoy your time here x

Congratulations! The pregnancy board are a lovely bunch in my experience smile

Welcome and congratulations.

Don't say hun. Don't put kisses after a post. Swear (lots). Don't ask if you're pregnant (you seem to have that one covered). Do not use the word 'hubby' or 'bubs' (DH and DC respectively).

Other than that, enjoy grin

And never, ever get involved in a discussion about toilet brushes or bleach.

Have a position on all things grammar. Especially comma slices. grin
Don't "dripfeed" information.

(Actually MN is lovely and is a brilliant resource!)
