I’m not sure what post you are talking about.  But as someone that has been TTC for years (and with no female problems) I know how frustrating TTC can be.  And extremely frustrating when someone says how hard it’s been this month….their first month TTC.  I just calculated it….I’ve been trying for over 100 months.

I have met many women over my many years that didn’t have “wait” that long….everyone I know got pregnant by 3 years so I know I’m in the minority.  But I do like the emotional support that these boards give….b/c honestly, I feel like giving up sometimes.  And I like being able to cite my own statistics that everyone I’ve ever known eventually got pregnant….but it’s still hard and I think we should be there for each other instead of bringing each other down…not everyone IRL understands what some of us are going through!

I’ve seen a couple posts about this lately and since I am bored at work I cruised over the the Bump to see for myself. WOW. It’s scary in there. One poor discouraged girl was completely flamed for not being as knowlegable about things as some other girls. You can def tell they have their share of “bullies” over there. I almost wanted to make an account just to say how evil they sounded but not worth it. Hopefully she will find her way here.  I think it is a rare thing to have such kind support on the interenet.

@texasbee:  I think she’s referring to a post she saw on another website, not here on the Bee.

@glittermoon:  I was SHOCKED at how mean people can get about the “Should I test?” threads. I would be crushed if someone said those things to me… Even if it’s on the internet! Love the WeddingBee and HelloBee!! =)

People get so weird… It’s like they feel cool because they’ve been posting on an Internet board longer than someone else?! It’s laughable!

I think it’s the Bump, but it could be another pregnancy/ttc board, where they are really bitchy to women who get pregnant easily (without charting/temping, or god forbid, by surprise)… like you don’t deserve a baby if you don’t have to work for it.

Something like this?  These responses made me cringe repeatedly.

@stillme:  I feel so cool when I see a newbie and I think to myself how I’ve been here like totally at least 3 months longer than them. 

I’m not TTC or pregnant, but I saw the title and I had to come look.  That’s terrible!  People are so mean.  I don’t know why it makes them feel better to be mean to others.  🙁

🙁 those comments make me sad. I can’t believe how mean some women can be! I understand that when you’ve been trying for longer it can be annoying to hear someone complain about trying shorter, but really TTC is hard whatever stage you are at so we should all support each other. So sad to see such negativity.

I saw this and thought it was regarding the TTC boards here… I HAD to open it because at no point was I ever treated badly here.  I see now it is about another site.  How unfortunate 🙁  TTC is a stressful, scary, rewarding, overwhelming, and exhausting journey, especially for those who have been trying for months and years.  I love that everyone here seems accepting and is always willing to share secrets, give advice, and sometimes just a big webernet hug when needed.  There’s no need to be nasty to anyone who is going through the rollercoaster of hormones and emotions brought on by this incredible period in life.
