    Meanings

    I'm feeling a bit stupid. I didn't get into any of the ovulation tracking and also did no reading about getting pregnant. Now I am and am frantically trying to catch up. However I'm really confused what all the abbreviations mean when people are talking on the forums. Is there anywhere that lists them?
    Thanks from a confused early mum

    Meanings

    There's probably a list here somewhere but I'll list the most common ones I can think of:
    Ttc - trying to conceive
    Lp - luteal phase
    Hpt - home pregnancy test
    Bfp - big fat positive
    Bfn - big fat negative
    Cm - cervical mucus
    Cp - cervical position or chemical pregnancy
    BD - baby dance (have sex)
    Dtd - do the deed (as above)
    Bbt - basal body temperature
    Irl - in real life
    Iirc - if I remember correctly
    Mw - midwife
    Cd - cycle day
    Dpo - days past ovulation
    O or ov - ovulation
    Af - Aunt Flo
    TWW - two week wait (the wait between ovulation and period or positive pregnancy test)
    Bf - breastfeed
    OPK - ovulation predictor kit
    FSH - follicle stimulating hormone
    Mmc - missed miscarriage
    Mc - miscarriage
    ...
    That's about all I can remember off the top of my head
