Wow great to see this, I’m not having a baby now but I saw BD and BFP and was so confused!

I also use OBC (oral birth control) which is a common abbreviation used by health professionals.

And you have a typo – TWW not TTW Smile

I had a hard time figuring out what CIO method for babies.

CIO = Cry IT Out

Since you have BFP, probably should add BFN – big fat negative.

I also see LO – little one used also in reference to babies or children.

I haven’t seen this used on this board but IF = Infertility

Oh, and in TTC lingo, CD is cycle day.  And DPO is days past ovulation.

I think I must be in the minority, but I find most of these abbreviations to be tiresome and kind of robotic. I don’t know why everything has to be given a handy acronym.

Just personally it makes the process more like a set of directions for putting together a microwave or something than having a baby. I dunno, maybe it’s just me but the “TWW” and “OPK/HPT/etc etc” terms are really kind of depressing.

Along with the infertility words, you may want to add IUI (Intra-Uterine Insemination) and IVF (In Vitro Fertilization)
