View Poll Results: Should I step down from hosting this board if I am not actively TTC
I want everyones honest opinion here. I want to know what you ladies think. Your decision will not upset me either way. Just vote and vote honestly.
DH and I are considering taking a break from TTC for a while. I need to focus on my health, and getting my weight down (it's starting to cause elevated blood pressure, which I've NEVER had a problem with before) We also just need to focus on us for a while. I have no idea how long this break might be. Right now I'm thinking 3 or 4 months. It could end up being more though. What I need to know is this.....Do you think I should step down from hosting and give someone else a chance to host if I am not going to be actively TTC. I mean...it would be one thing if a doctor had told me to take a break, or if I was on a short break after a M/C or something, but since I am doing this of my own free will, do you want me to step down.
Again, you won't upset me if it's time to give someone else a chance, and I will totally respect the decision you ladies make. Please vote the way you honestly feel.
I voted no. I don't think just because you're considering a break that you should step down. Everyone should take a break at some point when TTC gets so stressful. You're a really great co-host and I think that you and Brenda do an awesome job! It's ultimately up to you but in my opinion, you should stay host whether you're actively trying or not. Afterall, we have the new graduates subforum so that all those who get their bfps can stay around as well! =)

I voted 'no.' Sometimes, taking a break is a huge part of TTC. I don't like speaking for everyone, but I think that any of us that have been trying for so long will understand that. Now, if you were completely giving up on TTC, that would be different, but that isn't the case.
I'm with Tabby. It's your decision, and you do what you feel comfortable with, but, in my opinion, you stepping down isn't necessary at all.
Thanks ladies. I just know that on some other boards people get upset if the host isn't actively TTC, (wether taking a break or pregnant, or whatever.) I love this board, and don't want to step down but if the majority of you have felt like I should, I would have so that you all are comfortable with things here.
I also voted NO. I think that taking breaks sometimes is part of TTC, just like one of the other girls said. And, it's not like you are thinking right now of stopping TTC for good - You are just taking a break. I really like you as a Host, and I think you have a lot of great advice. I know that the board would really miss you! But, do what is BEST for you!
