Re: Sounds like it's time to vote... bfps in the ttc forum?

I voted to keep BFPs. I admit it's sometimes hard to see them, but it's also encouraging when you've been...agh, I can't think of the word I want. Stressing, maybe? Not quite, but it'll work. When you've been stressing alongside somebody and encouraging and receiving encouragement from them, it's good to see their BFP. I say if someone who's never been here before pops in with a BFP, just ignore their thread.

How about we never see anyones struggle either, you can't post your pics in your siggy, not little preggy smiley with a countdown, no EDD, because you may offend someone who is struggling.......how ridiculous it that?

JUST AS RIDICULOUS AS NO BFPS IN TTC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep the BFPs here until the one who posted the thread ask for it to be moved, it is her thread, and if she wants to be sensitive to other TTCers she will ask the mods to move the thread
EXACTLY!

I voted to keep them.
I don't like when ladies start a new thread each day w/ different pics of it. That's a little harsh.
I say keep them, if they have to be restricted to ATTS, then the group will just grow. No big deal.

Maybe just limit the number of threads started by each person w/ BFP pics.
(Yes, I have someone in mind. )

I am glad it's being considered, however, as it shows the ladies here really do care about each other and their feelings.

OR...
Why not make a "sticky" that folks feelings and hearts are exposed here in this forum and that if you are "not trying" and haven't been active in this forum, to just post your BFP in "Pregnancy." We here in TTC don't know who you are anyway.
I don't post to ATTS but I am still a TTC'r. I don't post a whole lot anymore but I still.

OK mama's, so the majority votes YES, so we will go by you all and allow ALL bfp's. As I said above in my reply, most mama's will post their bfp's in the preg forum but if by chance they post in ttc, nobody will complain about it. I will close this thread now and Jen, I will move your bfp back too.

The whole point of TTC is working towards that BFP! It would be very sad to see those go away! I am not in the ATT thread but I am TTC and go on this forum regularly so when I finally get my BFP I want to share that with all the wonderful ladies who helped me through that journey.

I think ALL BFP's should be seen as a wonderful thing and people need to set aside any negativity they feel towards that person. We are all grown women and we can decide for ourselves if we want to look at someone's BFP.

I say keep them!
