We all know that the journey to parenthood is not always an easy road. There are days where you are excited and hopeful and others where you are frustrated, angry and upset. During this emotional rollercoaster, it is so important to have a support system to lean on, vent to and cry with. In addition to seeking support from the wonderful group of women here on the boards, you can also opt to be part of a buddy group.
 
 
These buddies are other members of the site who is also actively trying to conceive. They understand the ups and downs you will be facing along the way to your BFP. Your buddies will check in with your frequently and you will be able to do the same for them. You will always have someone in your corner rooting for you.
 
 
I am so excited to be part of a program that will facilitate meaningful friendships that provide support, hope and comfort during the TTC journey!!
 
 
So, here is all you need to know before getting started  Smile
 
1. Reply to this thread letting me know that you want to be included and I will get you set up into a buddy group. After being placed, I will let you know the names of your buddies so that you can find yourself in your buddy thread.
 
2. If all the buddy groups are full, I will get you placed ASAP as soon as there is another member interested in joining. It will most likely only take a couple of days, so check back frequently.
 
3. You can always opt out of a group or to take a break from your group. Just e-mail me at eandrews1970@yahoo.com and let me know.
 
4. You will want to post an introduction and overview of your TTC journey up until this point within a week of being added to a buddy group.
 
5. In an effort to keep groups active and balanced, I will remove folks from the buddy threads after a month of inactivity.
 
6. If removed, you can rejoin at any time……….. just let me know! Smile
 
7. If your group is not as active as you hoped, you can be added to a second group so that you are able to get all the support you need! Just let me know. 
 
8. Most groups will be no larger than 5, however there may be some exceptions.
 
9. If you make a connection with a particular member and want your own “personal buddy” thread, let me know and I will get you set up.
 
10. If you want a topic centered buddy group, let me know and I can set up that as well. For example, if there are a few of you who want to have a fertility treatment thread or miscarriage thread or Clomid thread…… etc, you may want to set up a buddy group so that you can support each other!
 
11. Most of all, have fun! And if there is anything I can do to make the Buddy Forum more user friendly, welcoming and supportive….. let me know!!!!
Smile Elizabeth
