  2. Make Baby Week by Week more accessible from the homepage

    This new interface is definitely not as user friendly as the previous one. It takes a lot more hassle to find things that were so easy before. Fix it!

  3. The homepage requires way too much scrolling to find the content I would like to pursue.

    The homepage seems extremely long and requires a lot of time scrolling and trying to make sense out of the 'headline' topics, yet it seems like there's less content available on the homepage overall. Also, when you hover over the community header, it's frustrating that not all the boards are visible and it requires yet another click and a lot more scrolling on the following page to see all the options there. I think in the end that's going to cut way down on the traffic to the boards that aren't immediately visible on the hover. When I click on…

  4. Add Adoption as a Option in My Profile

    Under My Account, Profile, My Status you show Trying to Conceive, Pregnant, and Parent. Add a option for Adopting. We are also pregnant - it just happens to be that we are pregnant on paper.

  5. Gender preferences, please!

    I would love it if there was a gender preference for my baby-to-be. All the pronouns are feminine (she, her) and it'd be nice if there was a way to customize that once I find out the *** of my baby. It's great if it turns out I'm having a girl, but if I'll be having a boy, it's a little alienating.

    Hi,

    Thank you for providing us feedback! We hope you’re enjoying your experience with The Bump.

    Your request is a popular one. For now, as you’re experiencing, what you’re reading on our site is exactly what our editors have written and can’t be customized. You’ll find a mix of “he” and “she” throughout, with “she” being a little more prominent.

    It’s definitely on our list to add this feature. It’s not a simple fix, however, given the thousands of articles on TheBump, but it’s one that we’re committed to making.

    Thanks again for your feedback!

  6. Print out of the photos

    I had updated my photos month by month on the bump app. I would really like if you can add the feature of print so that i can print those photos and cherish those memories

  7. Pregnancy Nutrition Tracker

    It would be nice if the bump could develop a mobile pregnancy nutrition tracker which utilizes teh following features: a barcode scanner, a large food database with the options to add food and home recipes like My Fitness Pal.

    It would be based off of your pregnancy nutrition guidelines (see below). I've searched and haven't found one for pregnant women that is easy to use. With the features Moms are looking for.

    Keep track of your daily intake to make sure you (and baby!) get all the nutrients you need.

    □ Prenatal Vitamin
    □ Whole Grains and Legumes (6 or…

  8. Why can't I add my husband to my registry as the co-register?

    He's added in my profile as my husband, I can't find anywhere to add him so he shows up on the registry.

  9. Quit minimizing your loss communities

    You've had a ton of input on this, from your AL members, from your wonderful former AL mod, across different boards and in multiple posts. A significant portion of your users - or at least, former users - have dealt with pregnancy and/or child loss, and they were often the users who stick around and lent much to this site. It saddens me to think of the women coming here now who have to deal with the incredible insensitivity not only of other site users but within the design of the site itself.

  10. I like the new look, but where are the checklists?

    I dislike how the checklists aren't in a centralized place anymore. They're also not available under tools. That's one of my favorite features on this site!

  11. I kept a journal, now it is gone?

    For my first pregnancy I kept a journal on The Bump. With the new site I can't find it anywhere. Is the journal gone? I would like to add to it for the second pregnancy.

  12. Baby calendar

    Put my baby calendar on the front page. I had my son back in October, and I used the pregnancy calendar the entire time I was pregnant and now use the baby calendar as well. The Bump is literally the first website I go to every day and it would be nice to not have to hunt for my baby calendar.

  13. Would it be possible to "friend" other users and follow a friend feed.

    I would like to be able to follow a friend feed of members of my choosing.

  14. What happened to my Week-By-Week Checklist?

    I cannot find it and liked the timeline suggestions that it gave. Can we put it back in, or, if it is still there, put it in an easier to find location?

  15. Send my Bump emails to my partner too.

    Do emails actually get sent to the email address on file for significant others? My husband has not received any emails. I usually forward on articles I think would be helpful, but I was hoping he would receive periodic information like I do.

  17. As a Grandparent to be, I found the previous format easier to use and enjoy.

    Being able to go directly to the week of pregnancy was much more helpful for a grandparent. I enjoyed and found informative the experiences my daughter-in-law was having and discussing them with her. So many things I didn't know about when I was pregnant.
    I fel that with this new format, I'm lost as to how to gain access to that same information. I really appreciated the video with ech week.

  18. A message board just for women going through IVF or iui.

    This board would specifically be for 3T's going through fertility treatments like IVF, IUI, PGD, etc.

  19. On the message boards all the thread titles are bold. With the old layout, threads you already read would un-bold. Now everything stays bold

    On the message boards all the thread titles are bold. With the old layout, threads you already read would un-bold. Now everything stays bold. I have no way of knowing which threads I've already clicked on. It's making the board really hard to follow. Please fix this. There needs to be a way to see what I've already read.

  20. down syndrome

    My daughter has Down syndrome. None of these "see what baby is up to this week" segments are applicable to her. At 36 weeks old, she cannot sit up on her own yet. She has no teeth. She doesn't clap her hands. Also, she will be exclusively breastfed until 12 months. All of your updates assume I started solids at 6 months.
