Hi everyone,
I am new to the group. I'm 21 weeks pregnant. I have also had a lot of trouble trying to PM Alvarywinters as I keep getting an error and my message keeps disappearing. I would like to be added to the FB group. Can someone please tell me how.

lol I seem to be a hard person to contact! E-mail me on the above email with your facebook page link and we'll go from there original.gif

Edit; try this

If you click on My Controls in the left hand frame, then go down to Board Settings under Options (bottom of second frame) and again at the bottom on the right hand frame look for:
Type of text editor to use when posting and set it to Standard Editor.

I had this problem a few weeks back. Type a whole PM and then get an error saying to enter at least 3 characters.

Taken from the FAQ...had the problem myself (if this is the error you are getting) a while back and this fixed it original.gif

Ladies wishing to join Facebook group if I do not reply to you straight away please be patient.  I will get back to your PM as soon as I can.  At the moment I am not very well and am trying to be a super Mum, wife, friend etc but unfortunately can only do so much and at times I have to prioritise and let a few things slide.

Thank you for your understanding.
