But if all these ladies are becoming friends and are ALL TCC, I don't see the harm in sharing in others joy with their BFP.

I am new here and the stipulations of this rule is super confusing! You can't announce your BFP in the 2ww forum unless you were already involved in one or if you're updating a previous thread? Do I have this right? I just don't want to violate any rules or offend anyone unintentionally.

I do think its kind of a bummer that you can't share you're good news with your 2ww buddies just bc some people can't take you're good news. Kind of takes away from the fellowship of it all. But rules are rules so can someone clarify these terms? Thanks in advance!

Hannah, you can post your BFP in a thread you're already part of, but you can't start a new thread in the 2ww or TTC forums specifically for the purpose of announcing you have got your BFP. A thread like this should ONLY be posted in the announcements forum. Does that make sense?

This is why there is an announcements forum, so people can announce their BFP, but those that don't want to look can just avoid going in there. You ARE allowed to say you have your BFP if you're a member of a thread of people who have been supporting each other throughout the 2ww, but only in that thread. Any threads started specifically to announce a BFP need to go in the Announcements forum only

Oooooh, gotcha! That makes a lot of sense and I get why they're making it this way. Thanks for clarifying!

ALL girls are happy when they see someone sharing there news.
However ALL of us have bad days ~ af just came, feeling like never happen and just upset says
So last thing girls want to see as they enter trying concieve section is a bfp announcment thread staring at them... if there part of a group then they choose to enter that group to see if 'friends' have good news or pop into announcment area!.

i think the rule is for our sanity lol xx

I will follow the rule, however I don't agree with it. Seeing the BFP announcements gives long term TTC couples hope. Especially if you are familiar with a particular persons infertile situation and they do conceive.

The point is that some days you don't feel hope, sometimes other people's BFP's make you feel sad, jealous and then hate yourself for feeling that way. That's why there's a separate place to put them, so you CAN avoid seeing them if you are feeling down but can still take part in the TTC threads. There is nothing worse than seeing half a page full of "I finally got my BFP after 2 months!!!" types threads when you have been trying for a long time.
