If it's a fly by post of a bfp--it's ok w/ me,as I know those will happen.

I absolutely agree with Char.. while it's more annoying to see people who are in the "not trying, but what do you think" boat, I'm all for analyzing pee sticks, no matter who's they are

I voted no that they shouldn't be in the forum. There needs to be a sub-forum. It is such a gray area for so many and I hate to see those who struggle upset.

ITA, if I'm having a bad day and am a little down about TTC I just won't open the threads that day.

All BFPs allowed. I wasn't a part of ATTS when I conceived, but that doesn't mean DH & I weren't trying to get pregnant. I agree with whoever it was before me who said "we don't know everyone's history".

I'm not TTC but i love to look at BFP's and analyze tests...i think a sub-forum for all opk/bfp test pics should be made...

i think all BFP should be able to be posted here. i mean, look at it this way, if you are TTC for a looooong time and have been posting here, then finally get your BFP, wouldnt you want to shout it from the roof tops? if no BFP are allowed or only select BFP, wouldnt that be depressing

Maybe I'm totally cofused here? Even though it looks like the vast majority are saying yes, if no won, would you not be allowed to post pics in ATTS or JTC? My understanding was that this was to vote on whether or not you should post a seperate thread with BFP/HPT pics in TTC.

I think ATTS is where you would go if you want everyone you've been TTC with to see your BFP. Otherwise if you're not part of ATTS or JTC, but still TTC, link people to your post at the BFP Gallery, like I suggested on the other thread.

I personally don't mind it, really, it's part of life. But I have succeeded at this journey in the past (not really succeeding now) and I can't only imagine how hard it is for mamas who haven't succeeded or had a loss, to see someone who wasn't even trying to post a BFP in the TTC forum. It just creates a lot of hurt feelings which could be avoided. I don't think it's about being cliquey or expecting/hoping everyone fails at TTC because you have. I don't know. I guess this is more confusing than I thought.

I agree 100% with Char. Also Brandi is right, we don't know everyone's history and just because they never posted in the daily chat threads doesn't mean they weren't TTC.

Also - I think the ones who "we're not trying but..." need to remember the name of this forum - TRYING to conceive. Not NOT TRYING to conceive. I think THAT needs to be a sticky because it offended the hell out of me when a couple folks posted all willy nilly "omgosh, I'm not trying but look at my BFP!!?" Um no.
