'd like to propose that if one of us has happy news to share, we state that in the title of the post by putting "pregnancy" or "pg" in parenthesis (e.g. "Happy news [pg mentioned]").

I think this is a wonderful idea. On the other side of it, it might be nice to also flag miscarriage information (i.e. "[mc mentioned]", or something like that) for folks who might be feeling particularly discouraged.

On a personal note: I'll probably mostly lurk here for now, although I did go through a battery of fertility tests last year (including the infamous HSG). DH and I are only just starting to try; but we've been given long odds by the MDs due to the fact that he just had a vasectomy reversal after 12 years, and I'm going to turn 39 this year. (For those who are curious, my age is considered more likely to be problematic than the length of time since his original vasectomy.) I am, however, fully qualified to grouse about the occasional insensitivity of the medical profession . ;-/

Thanks for starting the board, BG.
