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)
