The TTCAL community on The Bump is a wonderful place full of amazing women who have a ton of knowledge and support to share. Once you’ve posted an introduction on the main board, feel free to join a few check ins! Check ins are a great way to get to know members of the community better. Below is a list of the TTCAL community check-in, their frequency and a small description.
EDD check-ins are run once per week. These check-ins are specifically designed for ladies to get to know other bumpies with EDDs in the same month.When you are ready, please intro in the check-in that applies to you so that the check-in leader can add you to the list. If you are looking to add a badge to your siggy please go here to find the appropriate one.
If/when you get a BFP please PM (private message) your check-in leader and do not post your BFP publicly for the other members to see. BFPs are very difficult to see and check-in leaders take the necessary steps to warn the other members of a new graduate and minimize any hurt that could potentially come from this.
