Ok, So I post on another board and have so for almost a year, I have become friends with quite a few regulars who are pretty excited about my TTC process. I had posted on that page when I came off the BC and was excited, well some people took that as an opportunity to think it was necessary for them to post negative or discouraging comments....

WHY?

Seriously, I am 33 years old, financially stable, married to an AMAZING man and we planned carefully and waited until a specefic time. Why do people feeel the need to judge me?

I realize there are trolls out there, but come on! Thank fully, the offending posts were done while I was gone and my girls had my back.

But if your life is SO horrible that you ahve to be nasty to someone who was NOT looking for advice, why don't you just go live in acave somewhere?!?!?!?

Ok, vent over

I will NOT tolerate ANY negativity on this board and I will report ALL posts

That was a really weird day. Originally, I don't think it was meant to be rude. Someone was asking if you were sure, not b/c you can't handle it, but b/c the world sucks in general and the poster had a child with disabilities. I think he was trying to open a door to conversation about bringing children up in this day and age, but he asked in a really crappy way. Then he accused me and PI of being a clique when we tried to stand up for you which was way off base. Then from there accusations hurled. I just tried to watch from the "Wanda-cave" until I knew it was safe.

Anywho, it's a new day, new possibilities. Mean people still suck, but positive people have the opportunity to wake up everyday and feel for a fresh start

I stopped posting on the parenting boards because of mean people. I mean hello I don't know you in real life so why do you care what I do in mine? lol.....people can be soooo judgemental but trust me I am not. I even kept a few of those friends around and now we talk on FB all the time....another thing I was thinking I would upload a profile pic but I need to take some pics cuz I delete them as soon as I upload to FB.....my computer is old and can't hold them all lol....

LOL, I hear ya! I used to Lurk on those boards and I have no desire to join them, the OLD ones from like 1-2 years ago, were really nice and the people seemed to care about each other, but then I went on them about 6 mos ago and MAN they were straight up mean! I even posted and introduction to myself on the TTC board and no one even was like "whats up" which is part of the reason here, I am very enthusiastic about new members esp, I WANT poeple to feel comfortable and a part of the board KWIM?

Yep I like this board and I used to post all of the time about 2 years ago on the parenting boards but now I wouldn't know any of them. The ones that are still my friends are the ones who stood up for me when people where attacking me they attacked some of my good friends 2 and now I don't even know if they still post. I think we should stick to this board as our "TTC" board lol

BabyLovesPrada replied to mrslee97658's response:
Yeah, but what about when someone gets KU? I don't want them to feel like they need to leave, but what if someone is struggling? I don't wan them to feel bad either, guess we will cross that bridge when it comes..... I guess I just like our little cocoon of nice people!!!!! LOL

I lived for the old pregnancy boards. It was nice when one of us "graduated" to the next trimester, and finally when I was able to share my birth story I got so much friggin love man. I'm still FB friends with a few of my trimester buddies. It was one cohesive unit and everyone was really supportive. I don't know what I would have done w/o them. These new boards though? Seems a little confusing and there are approxiamately a million of them..Moms with GD, Jan moms, Feb moms, Christmas babies...who can keep up and how can you find a niche of a bunch of people when everyone is so spread out?

I know, i lurked when you were in your 2nd or 3rd trimester, At my old job, I loved reading people's questions, comments ect and it was nice I didnt DARE post anthing, here its different, I get my work done. But then it just seemed to turn and get very clique-y and a lot less love ( and patience) for new people. I havent checked it out recently, maybe I will when I am KU'ed, I dunno, a lot of boards I am feeling disconnected from, which sucks cuz their are some cool people.

I really don't think there are "rules" as far as moving up or anything like that. I know I would never make someone feel like they had to leave the board because they didn't "fit" lol. TTC, preggo, not TTC, not preggo you're all welcome to be friends with me . I am a very friendly, honest person in fact that is exactly what my name "Ruth" means: a friend

BabyLovesPrada replied to mrslee97658's response:
So I can call you Ruth? I am not big on screen names, they are impersonal, but on the same tokken, I will respect anyone who wishes to be ID'd by their screen name only

I think its rediculous about how some people are on these boards. i dont see why they would bash you at all for that. i just dont understand on why that would be such a negative thing for them to say something to you. its not like your 70 years old having your 20th kid and have a 90% chance of having a kid with dissabilities. ya back when i was pregnant i loved the boards but as soon as i moved to the parenting boards i have been bashed about some of my opinions left and right. ya i didnt go by the book by my kid is extremly healthy and happy so i dont regret any of my disissions. there is definatly no reason we have to move from this board is we dont have to if we are all happy on here. its not like they are going to kick us off if they find out we are really TTCing or pregnant or had a baby. but if we absolutly wanted to though we could always make a new board on here too, maybe call it TTC- before, during, and after (supporters welcome of course). but that really dosent need to be either. but definatly agree lovin this no drama zone. i get to much of it as it is .

Rock on Jessica, Rock on

Some of my peeps from another board (and they are the coolest peeps EVER) have swung over and they are very cool and always have great advice, they range in age and varying degrees or parenthood- or not and think they will have some great insite and I always look forward to their opions, SO I think I should see if I can change the name of the board? I like your Idea
