TTC Lingo

When I first began to google the ins and outs of trying to conceive, just over 2 years ago, it took me a good while to figure what on earth all the abbreviations meant! so I thought it would be good to pop a page on here for anyone to use as a reference point because I am guilty of using such abbreviations in my blog posts 🙂

If I have missed any off please feel free to comment below with them!

TTC = Trying To Conceive

2ww = Two Week Wait (Luteal Phase-14 days after ovulation)

AF = Aunt Flo (Menstruation/period) < this one makes me laugh!

BBT = Basal Body Temperature

BD = Baby Dance (sex) < very important!

Beta = Blood test for PG

BFN = Big Fat Negative (Pregnancy tests)

BFP = Big Fat Positive (Pregnancy tests) – the one I dream of!!

CB = Cycle Buddy

CD = Cycle Day

CM = Cervical Mucus

CP = Cervical Position

DPO = Days Past Ovulation

DTD = Doing The Dance or Doing The Deed haha (sex)

EWCM = Egg White Cervical Mucus

HCG = Human Chorionic Gonadotropin – detected in HPTs

HPT = Home Pregnancy Test

LP = Luteal Phase (days between ov & AF)

O or OV = Ovulation

OPK = Ovulation Predictor Kit

POAS – Pee On A STick (you know what stick I mean!)

Hope that has been of some use to you!
