The Bump

Postby MissCanada30 » Sun Sep 21, 2014 10:17 am

Hiya ladies, after a brief adventure onto the forums of The Bump I'm back. Has anybody else checked that website out? They are so nuts and aggressive. I'm happy to be back and happy you are all so friendly and kind. Wishing you all luck on your TTC Journeys.

I have, just out of curiosity ;). I couldn't believe how crass they are and just plain rude. Not my cup of tea ;). Haven't found that to be the case here. Everyone is friendly and supportive.

I was visiting the bump for awhile, just stalking before we started TTC…and yes, I noticed a lot of people were really mean to one another. Attacking each other over baby names or just for asking a simple question. Sad, really.

it is pretty easy for folks to be mean online, and not face to face. It is very sad though that they would be mean to people who are going through the same stressful journey as they are. We all need positive encouragement and environments :) Welcome back!

They are the reason I didn't go to ANY pregnancy groups during my first pregnancy. I would go back and check up occasionally just to see if the trolls had left and they were still there aggressive as ever.

Just had a quick nose at the Bump. What's with all the gifs? Really distracting!
