    I think this is why I don’t care for the pregnancy/TTC (trying to conceive) boards: I never understand what’s being said, i don’t care to look up the acronyms, and it doesn’t really concern me anyway.

    @mrsqueenb:  It gets confusing with all the terms at times.  And some sound perfectly awful until you know what they mean!  BM and STD mean something very different outside of the bridal world where they’re bridesmaid and save the date!

    You can try googling an acronym and if all else fails, just ask, and a friendly Bee will tell you Smile

    The only time I’m ever really confused is when I’m on the TTC boards. But I enjoy checking up on the progress of those bees from time to time, so I’m slowly starting to understand their lingo without having to look everything up  haha.

    I tend not to use acronyms purely because not everyone understands them.

    There was a few I couldn’t figure out on the TTC boards but usually I can figure it out!

    For the first day or so that I was on the boards, I had the acronym page open for quick referrals. Good thing I read that Newbee thread or else I would have been so lost!
