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.

I got banned for a week when I announced mine in here in June 2009!
I only wanted to thank the ladies for their support... Especially as they supported me after my loss at 14 weeks, then they were there on my ttc journey which took me another 6 months to concieve.

So be careful what you say ladies!!

I STILL dont think bfp announcements should be on TTC-Admin are absolutely right in banning this, i was ttc 2yrs and last thing id want to hear if people were ttc 2 months or 2yrs was then got bfp.\Cos i admit it really hurt not cos they were pregnant it was becos i wasnt.TTC is such a painful journey i know.If u want post bfp create a journal or stick it in ur sig TBH even signitures bombarded with tickers usedto fustrate me thats why i just go lickle one

Dear me!

Whist this thread was refreshed (due to new sections added to BabyandBump) there has always been a sticky at the top of the TTC section about posting BFPs here.

Please DO NOT Post BFP Announcements In This Section
Quote:
Ignoring the guidelines within different sections after you have read them may result in your account being made inactive or an infraction/warning being issued to your account.
You had been around long enough to know that you could post in your journal (where your support was) but NOT in the TTC section for any reason. Your account was a temporary warning to read and pay note to these guidelines that are set for reasons.

I understand that, but I felt like I was being made an example of because before I posted my thanks, there were LOADS of people who posted their BFP's in here and never got temporarily banned

The difference was, they didn't call the title of their BFP thread "Hi Girls...Know im not meant to, but..."

There are a percentage of members that legitimately get it wrong. You didn't.

I agree fully with Admin here and not allowing these kinds of posts in the general TTC forums - there's a seperate BFP section where all can post and this is the place people should go if that want hope/inspiration etc.

However, I'd like to ask Admin if they might consider making this thread a sticky on TTC #1 forum too, as we've had lots of BFP posts in there lately and it's upsetting a few of the ladies there?

OMG...I really am in shock about this. Good grief. My husband and I have been TTC for over 5 years and have suffered two losses and under went 2 IUI's and going to attempt our third as soon as I am done the loss of my blighted Ovum. I can tell you, 100% that I would NEVER be upset or angry for someone announcing their BFP no matter how I was feeling that day. Man if thats all it takes to upset someome....Maybe we shouldn't be allowed to go places where pregnant women will be because we might be jelous of their bumps? Come on......

I do feel fine about it and would expect the same from others if I posted my good news no matter how it happened! I refuse to envy no one. I would much rather enjoy good news! Just because its not happening for me, doesnt mean someone should feel guilty about their pregnancy. I think that sends the wrong message.
