Hi Everyone.

Since we now have quite a few groups in this section (and I quite often get pm's from new members to find out which group they should join) I thought I would start this Guide to help.

All our groups welcome new members so why not have a read and post and say hi and you might make a few new friends as well as getting support and advice during your TTC journey.

3rd Child?   A group of members thinking about having a third child.

The Chook Shed  We are a buddy group who all hit the long-term TTC mark, met in the TTC 12 months+ forum, and supported each other through our first fertility specialist visits and beyond. We are a mixture of those TTC, baking bubbas and being mummas.

Gender Swayers Group This Group was started to provide an open, honest and non-judgmental place where ladies who are trying to conceive a specific gender can come to share their knowledge / experience / journey with other ladies who understand and share that desire. Obviously, when it comes to low-tech �gender swaying� nothing is fail proof, however with the ultimate goal of a healthy pregnancy and baby in mind, making a great gender swaying attempt means that there will be no regrets, regardless of the outcome.

Losing Weight While/For TTC'ing  As the title suggest these members are trying to lose weight either for or while TTC'ing.

SMEP Buddy Group This is a buddy group who are TTC using the SMEP (Sperm meets egg plan). A summary of the plan can be found in each thread. We are a friendly and chatty bunch who love having new members join us! original.gif

Thinking About TTC This group is for those currently thinking about TTC'ing. Once members decide to actively TTC they move to another group in this Section.  

TTC #1  This is for any member trying to conceive their first child.

TTC #2 This is  for those members who are trying to conceive their second child.

TTC'ing Now - Ongoing Thread This the thread for anyone currently TTC'ing.  Once a BFP is received members can Graduate to the TTC Graduates Group in our Buddy Group section.

TTC while breastfeeding Feel free to join this lovely group of ladies who are TTC'ing while breastfeeding.

TTC'ing with Endometriosis A group for any members TTC'ing and having Endometriosis.

TTC with PCOS Meet other EB members who have been diagnosed with PCOS and follow /join them in their/your TTC journey.

Tubal Reversal Buddy Group For members who have had, or are planning to have a Tubal Reversal.

TTC after Vasectomy by Reversal or IVF Buddy Group.  For those TTC'ing (or thinking about TTC'ing) after a vasectomy.

Please feel free to join any of our groups, they all as I said welcome new members and are very friendly.
Rules for New/Starting Buddy Groups

Only a Moderator can start new groups (to save double up issues and confusion).

Our buddy Groups do not have a specific month or year in them (like testing in July or TTC Mid 2007 etc) as we find that is too restrictive and confusing for the group name as time goes on.

If you need any more information or want to enquire about setting up a group then please contact me via pm.

Happy chatting. original.gif and all the best of wishes for your TTC journey.

Due to the sensitive and emotional nature of TTC'ing once you receive a BFP you need to cease posting in the group and leave it to those TTC'ing.  

We do not set up separate Buddy Groups for those who have gotten a BFP as that is what the DIG's are for.   To join a Due in Group just click here and pick the month you are due and post in there and say hi.

Kind regards

Ali
