I think we should stop with the apologies


Given that all of us are in the same boat, I think we should stop apologizing for sharing our various details - however icky they may be.

We all know that CM is nasty sometimes, that our bodies produce all sorts of weird and wonderful things, and some times let us down with a spot of the runs or the bungs.

When you're trying to conceive a baby, there is no such thing at TOO MUCH INFORMATION.

Feel free to ask what you need to ask, or share what you need to share - never feel ashamed - we are probably the most poked, prodded, pushed and palped ladies out there. Besides, you don't have to say sorry to friends for little things - steal their husband and you might have something to apologise for you, but a little smear of CM - forget about it.

to all

Hear hear Caterpilllar (oooo, that kinda rhymes!)

I resolutely never type TMI on here - I know you're all doing what I'm doing, I know you're all stressing about the same bodily functions and secretions .... we're TTC, it's what we do!

EXACTLY! We are all in the same boat in this TTC journey and there is nothing that could be TMI about it!

i think we ought to celebrate our bodies in all their glory! for too long we've skulked around, worrying about periods and CM and leg hair and all the things that actually make us natural, wonderful, sensual women...sex is messy, sweaty and often a bit smelly but glorious because we are doing it with someone very special. getting pg and all that goes with it is such an amazing time and whilst it has its ups and downs we, as women, can be here for one another.

thanks for the thread - it needed saying!

Well said! I was talking to my best friend today about thrush and she launched into a TMI conversation - and I didn't even bat an eyelid - I've become so accustomed to it here LOL

Well said. I am new to this, so even though I know I am here with a welcoming crowd, I find myself saying "TMI" sometimes because..well, I'm simply not used to talking about bodily functions and cervical mucous.

I have been pregnant before, but it ended in MC at 7 weeks, and while I was pregnant I never found a community like this one and I wish I had. I'm glad to be here now, and thank you for letting us who are unsure feel welcome, and next time I talk about light or heavy creamy CM, I will no longer feel like it's TMI
