So I just got found out I’m pregnant, and am really trying to find good sites to start reading about what I should be doing/avoiding, good tips, entertaining stories, etc. What were your favorite websites or blogs to visit during your pregnancy? I don’t have any friends yet who have been pregnant and I haven’t told my family yet, so I don’t have many people IRL to ask about my *many many* questions.

HelloBee is a HUGE help 🙂 It’s a community like WB (created by the same person!) and the amount of information that I’ve gotten from the blogs/boards there is amazing. Here’s the link! http://boards.hellobee.com/

I like to visit sites like, http://pregnancy.baby-gaga.com/calendar/ and the bump to read up on baby’s progress each week.
I’m not a huge fan of blogs, but I LOVE http://theomgmom.com/ and have been keeping up with it even before my dh and I started to ttc. She’s hilarious and she used to be a Bee:)
As for specific questions I just use Dr. Google. It has saved me some really unnecesary phone calls to my Dr!

i signed up to receive weekly email newsletter from whattoexpect.com and babycenter.com. I also have their apps on my phone and enjoy reading my daily tips. I also was recommended Lucie’s List when i was asking about registry info and have been getting funny and informative emails from her site. And i plan to go back to her site when i set up my registry: http://www.lucieslist.com/

I like hello bee. I was going to baby center, but the women over there can get really mean, so I don’t venture that way much anymore.

I like 3dpregnancy.parentsconnect.com for weekly baby updates. I like the What to Expect Boards, I only lurk-don’t post. Here is an article on the top 50 pregnancy blogs. I haven’t had a chance to check them all out yet!http://www.babble.com/pregnancy/pregnancy-products-gear/top-50-pregnancy-mom-blogs/
@JewishBride: I love OMGmom, she is hilarious!
ETA: The birth stories here, made me cry like a hormonal pregnant woman:

For general pregnancy info, thebump.com, babycenter.com, and thecradle.com (I especially like the cradle because every day I get an email with a short fact about where I am in my pregnancy).
I found Hellobee to be a great go-to site for advice/stories from real moms, as opposed to text-book information.
I haven’t really found a blog I love enough to follow regularly, although pregnantchicken.com is hilarious.
I also like chiccheapnursery.com (real nursery design/decor, real birthday parties/showers, etc).

@Running Elley: Oh, I didn’t realize MODG was pregnant again! I used to read her, and then I stopped and can’t remember why (probably the ridiculous fog of the first trimester).
