    This thread has always been a TTC thread and it always will be. That's not up for debate as far as I'm concerned.


    Agreed @BIB, but Option 1 on the list was suggesting keeping one thread for both TTC and Pregnancy. I just wanted to say my preference was for two separate threads.

    I'd like it be an open group, as I for one didn't know the closed group existed, so had been hunting around for such a group. I imagine there are others in the same boat and people often lurk before posting...

    As for whether it's private or open....

    I'm not likely to post anything sensitive but I understand some may be concerned about that. Likewise, we probably don't want to risk trouble-makers coming in.

    I think perhaps "Invite Only" - you need one of our regulars to nominate you to get in, much like a golf club So private, in other words.

    TBH I'd be grateful to be eligible to go on the Pregnancy Graduates thread, whether open or private!!!

    I like the invite only idea

    So far it's a close race between private and open.

    Just a thought ...

    If there are people who wish to keep their pregnancies, pics of their children, and personal details private, then perhaps it might be best to consider making the Graduates a private thread?

    Other members who want to share their private information can do so openly on other areas of the site anyway, but once personal information is out there, it's out there forever. Everyone is entitled to privacy, and I'd hate to think someone might feel they can't partake in the Pregnancy Graduates thread openly and honestly purely because they're worried about 'strangers' reading about their private life.

    As new members come through the TTC thread we can always invite them up to the Graduates thread once we're comfortable with them.

    Sorry F,H&L - we're not making this easy on you!

    It's empathetic to both sides of the coin.

    I think the TTC thread needs to be somewhere that those still TTC can feel completely comfortable being negative, hopeless & sad whenever they need to. Bcos I think at the end of the day that's when we all MOST need the thread, and the support of others. I know that sounds awfully pessimistic! But if I'm honest I know sometimes when there's a few bfp's & lots of cheerfulness I feel less inclined to share a crappy day, or a hopeless feeling. And recently we've had lots of sadness AND lots of bfp's. So I think it's probably highlighted the need to maybe discreetly figure out something that works for both sides.

    I also definitely think a second thread is a really great idea- Bcos the girls with bfp's need somewhere that they can be completely free to be bloody ecstatic & excited and not have to worry that they might upset anyone. That's the last thing I would want- for someone else's joy to be dampened in any way Bcos they are trying to protect those of us still trying.
    You took the words outta my mouth. 👍🏻
