It’s like learning a whole new language

There are so many abbreviations when it comes to forum and blog posts about trying to conceive, and I know I have fallen into their evil grasp! So before I go any further, I thought I would list the ones that I am aware of (and am probably using) with my own understanding of their meanings.

TTC – trying to conceive
AF – aunt flo (period)
CD – cycle day
DPO – days post-ovulation
2WW / TWW – two week wait
IB – implantation bleeding
BBT – basal body temperature
BFN – big fat negative (although “fat” is not necessarily how I read it in my head)
BFP – big fat positive
HPT – home pregnancy test
OPK – ovulation predictor kit
POAS – pee on a stick
