Our Rules

The complete list of rules can be found here

  • Posting a positive test (BFP)? Our weekly BFP post is stickied on the main page of /r/TryingForABaby! No BFP posts or comments are permitted outside the weekly post.

  • This group is for anyone trying to get pregnant and to ask/give advice on getting pregnant. Be supportive!

  • If you see something spammy or derogatory posted, please use the report button to alert the mods.

  • This subreddit contains scores of posts with detailed descriptions about completely natural bodily processes (of all people) on the topic of getting pregnant. When discussing fertility there is NO SUCH THING AS TMI!

Using Trigger Warning (TW) Flair

When discussing pregnancy or infant loss, previous pregnancies, children, or other topics users may find triggering, please utilize the TW flair. You may use any of the following four formats:

[ your comment here ](/trigger)
[ your comment here ](#trigger)
[ your comment here ](/tw)
[ your comment here ](#tw)

Please be considerate about the words that you say and the way they are said and keep in mind that using TW flair does not override the rules. Mention of BFP or current pregnancies outside of the BFP are prohibited.
