Yay bnb :)


Just wanted to say what a great place it is here - and I'm so thankful for all the lovely ladies on this site!

I've posted so many weird, random, sensitive and often opinion seeking threads over the years - and have ALWAYS been met with supportive, thoughtful and kind replies. Even if someone tells me I'm wrong they've always offered an alternative way to see the situation, and have given me great insight. I love that bnb has people from literally all over the world contributing to one another's lives, and from what I've seen, always in a variety of uplifting ways.



My friend who has been TTC for about a year, but just started ov testing, was visiting yesterday. She was super upset because she posted a picture on another pregnancy/parenting website *not to be named* (even though I wish I could because it was AWFUL!) and was met with flat out MEAN replies! She showed me the thread and she got quite a few replies berating her for being a new member and "flaunting" her "clearly positive opk" when "she should know that most women on there can't ovulate or conceive". Telling her what a b she was and to go...fly a kite (not that nicely but you get the idea). i would understand if she was pregnant and posting it all over a TTC board - but I think we all know how freaking confusing OPKs are??? (IMO hers wasn't positive anyway ) and she was just trying to figure out how to read them. Yikes. She was discouraged for sure.


So anyway! Just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! to everyone here. I obviously directed my friend to babyandbump and away from the other site

Hope everyone is having a good Monday so far

Aw I feel the same way. I sometimes look on another site, I have't joined, I just look for entertainment because oh my gosh, it is like watching lions fight .
Sorry your friend had that experience, I hope she gets her BFP soon!

Haha lions fighting is a good way to put it! I poked around on the site after she left and I couldn't even believe it was (allegedly) grown women acting like that? Yikes

Awww, how lovely!

I love Bnb! Through all the stages I've been in on here in the last 6+ years (after MCs, being around with no babies, pregnancy and now being a first token mummy) I've always been met with lovely people with great advice and points of view, even if it's different to what I've first thought. I've made amazing friends and my DD has little online friends at not even 1

I really do love it here

Aww! I LOVE BnB! Practically live here! I've made so many lovely friends and even met a few. It's such a friendly and supportive place

Sorry your friend went through that bad experience and hope she gets her BFP soon!

I agree. Other forums seem scary!

I'm imagining you actually wandering into another forum by accident and posting "what's for dinner tonight?" and getting a bunch of answers like "it'll be a knuckle sandwich for you; how dare you talk about dinner when most of the women on here haven't even had time for lunch! **** off!" and being scared for life

That made me LOL! Sadly that's exactly how this site was! And then they were like virtually high-fiving one another for insults!!! The one girl made the huge mistake of saying congratulations to someone for getting her BFP - but she forgot the "s" on "congrats" and the other posters went on and on about that it was like watching a lower life form lol sad! I felt bad for everyone involved in it!

Haha Eleanor made me laugh too!

One woman put 'baby dust to all' well ive never seen abuse like it! 😳 bet the poor woman never went back again.

It's quite sad really, that a bunch of women can turn on soneone looking for support like that.
