Welcome to the new Pregnancy Support thread. This thread was created because I felt compelled to offer up my support to the lovely Gaian women who are facing pregnancy. Every Gaian is welcomed here as long as they maintain a sense of maturity and offer up support to those who need it.
I expect those who enter this thread to be civil, caring, compassionate, and to follow the ToS. Things may get a bit graphic in here since we are dealing with the female anatomy, please refrain from posting borderline porn pictures directly into the thread. Instead I suggest that you offer a link and forewarn your fellow Gaians to what it is.
I understand that some people may feel strongly about Pro-Life or Pro-Choice, but this is not the place to battle out the differences. You may suggest what you think is right for the person you are helping, but do not go crazy and try to force your view on them.
Conversations are naturally allowed in this thread as long as you keep it civil. I rather you not curse if at all possible. Flaming is strictly prohibited, but tough love is allowed. Please be aware of the difference between the two.
If you do find yourself either the target of flaming or you simply do not like another sister within the thread, please take your argument to PMs or simply PM a thread moderator. We will not be tolerating any flaming within the thread. Any sister or brother found flaming will be banned from the thread for one week. If anyone is a repeat offender, they will be placed on the perma-banned list. Trolls are an exception to this rule, any and all trolls who enter this thread will be instantly perma-banned.
Please be aware that this thread does not support young teens who are trying to conceive for foolish reasons. There are special cases in which many of us will offer our support to younger women who wish to conceive, but this is extremely rare. If you are a young woman who wishes to get pregnant just because you want a mini me, you will not be warmly greeted here.
.......Rules are as followed:
.......♫ Follow ToS
.......♪ No Drama/Stirring the Pot
.......♫ No Debating Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice
.......♪ No Bumping/Spamming/Self Advertising
.......♫ No Trolling
.......♪ Keep Quote Trees Trimmed
.......♫ No Huge Photos/Page Stretching
.......♪ No Quoting Front Page Quotes
.......♫ Obey Thread Moderators
More rules can be added when seen fit. Hopefully we will not need a long list of guidelines to keep this thread a fantastic place.
I, Adorably Awkward, as thread creator hold the right to ban anyone for any reason when I see fit. Unfortunately, there are times when I have to act like the byatch and bring the hammer down. At first, you may not understand why I did it; however, please try to understand that there is a justifiable reason to my actions. I will never ban someone just for the "lols" and I will always try to post my reasons for all to see. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this statement...please PM me. If you follow the rules and don't cause trouble, then you have nothing to fear.
Thread Moderators hold the responsibility of keeping the thread in check. They are the firewall of this thread, they keep out the trolls and flaming posters. They are also responsible for keeping out drama and reporting all drama queens to the thread OP. They speak for the OP when the OP is offline.
Thread Moderators are not above or below any regular poster of the thread. If you see them causing drama, trolling, or flaming please report them to the OP. Thread Moderators are expected to be mature and remain neutral during arguments within the thread. Moderators are not to go off to other threads, blogs, or other online areas to openly flame other members of the PS thread. It's immature, unprofessional, and unwelcomed in this thread.
