TW question

Is it appropriate/necessary to have a TW when mentioning my son? I don't want to be insensitive, but feel like it may be overkill.

    Oh, I'm glad this was asked. I never know. I have used the "TW" a couple times depending on the context and worry when I don't use it.

    Can i ask what TW is? Before i get jumped on for asking i did look at the abbreviations page and it wasn't listed. Only TWW is.

    Good question! TW stands for trigger warning. We use it around here out of respect for anyone who has gone through a loss, IF or just ttc-struggle. So you'll see it on posts before mentioning an mc, a bfp, a pregnancy, etc.

    Since the community has seemed to change a bit since I was here last -

    Does announcing a bpf have a tw now? andplusalso - do people even announce them seperate of the TWW posts?

    @bornmommy - BFP are supposed to stay in TWW. Generally I don't see people say TW in the TWW thread, but they do put like a header ***BFP mentioned*** at the beginning of their post so people having a tough TTC day can just scroll by if they don't want to read it.

    Good to know. That wasn't the case a couple years back so I'm glad I asked.
