That sounds like a neat idea!! How many people are in the group now? I am currently on BabyCenter too so I do spend a lot of time there in smaller private groups than on the birth boards. Have you tired that site?

Hey ladies! I stayed on spark through both my last pregnancies and plan to again with this one however I am not on here as often as I am fb. I checked out babyfit again this time around and it was pretty dead. Last pregnancy a group of us from the babyfit site made a due date group on facebook so we could check in regularly and talk about baby names and our birth plans and all the lovely embarrassing pregnancy symptoms you only want to talk about with other pregnant women lol and we still talk regularly 2 years later, it's nice to have that group that went through pregnancy with you :)

So anyways having no luck with babyfit this time around pushed me to created my own pregnancy facebook group, it is set to secret so no one on your facebook can see that you belong to the group or what you post for those who have not yet told people they are expecting :) I just thought it would be a good way to check in more often than on spark and to keep ourselves more accountable since I am determined to stay super healthy with this pregnancy. I am due in November but anyone would be welcome to join no matter what month your due. If you want to join either message me your facebook url and I'll get you added or you can add me on there and just let me know your from spark and want to get added to the group https://www.facebook.com/erica.berkshire

I'm staying on Sparkpeople. I did jump over and make another username for BabyFit but when I seen that there was virtually no activity and hardly any members, I decided to stay here. Besides, this is where I've made the most connections.

I just joined Babyfit and agree that the community is quiet. Plus it did give me a high calorie range even though I put that i'm TTC (AF is due today, so we'll see!)

I also gave it a shot to track my food and gave up halfway through adding breakfast! I'll stay here and manually adjust my calories.

Have looked around on BabyFit. Overall image is not good. Although is linked to SP you have to get another username. If you say you're TTC it gives you 300 extra calories to eat, even though you're not pregnant. And I agree with the rest of you, the forums are not very active. So me too, I will stay on SP and change my calorie/nutritient goals manually if I get pregnant.

I had never heard of it, but just looked it up. I wonder why it isn't good if it's hosted by sparkpeople. Oh well.

I've never signed up for BabyFit, but I've not heard good things about it. I plan to stay on SparkPeople and just up my calorie limits manually.

I endured 9 months of babyfit, but wish I had stayed on sparkpeople and manually changed my calories limits.

I can and I will - watch me!

When I was nursing, I went onto BabyFit, but didn't like it as much as Spark (even though its basically the same site). I didn't like the food log because it wasn't nearly all encompassing like Spark is. I just took my goals (calories, fat, protein, calcium, etc) and did my goals manually over here. I think they need to re-boot that site, and tie it into Sparkpeople (like sparksavings is) and not have it a seperate site like it is now.

Yeah it's just dead and the food log doesn't have anything in it. So I just came back here. I went into my food goals and changed my calories a little bit, and decided to track calcium too. I'm sure it'll be good enough.

I just was on the babyfit site and it is completely dead over there. I was on for 2 weeks and never once did I see someone comment on my forum discussions. That's why I came back to Sparkpeople. It is more active over here.

I thought Babyfit was also made by the creator of Spark. I am surprised that it isn't popular. Another overwhelmingly full site is The Bump. I think the info is good, but also biased and isn't so much about health but baby info.

Congrats on being pregnant! I can't say that I'm familiar with BabyFit - but if you're looking for an active community then Spark People is your place. I believe that you can change a setting in Sparkpeople to indicate that you're pregnant.

Hello everyone, Iv used sparkpeople for a few yrs now and am expecting my 2nd child. I was wondering if any of you have continued to track your food/exercise on this site instead of switching over. I tried Babyfit and it seems dead there
