that list doesnt cover any of the crazy baby ones.

i dont really read the baby posts… im not TTC (trying to concieve), as they would say- but also bc I have no idea what the hell is going on. TTC is the only thing I have figured out!

@September29:  I’m not TTC either (and won’t be for a while!), but the number of abbreviations in the Babies thread titles is overwhelming!

@September29: & @sarahbabs: Agreed!  I’ve figured out TTC, and CM (cervical mucous) and EWCM (egg white CM).  That’s. About. It!

@Juliepants: ooo mucus. hahah oh and i forgot that I found out BFP= big fat positive. i really don’t get it… why just not say “positive” or “PT” for positive test or something? the “big fat” adds a negative connotation if you ask me. I think BFN for big fat negative would make more sense.

@September29: One of the baby ones that took me forever was TWW – Two Week Wait after ovulation to testing time.

And non baby related:  TL:DR. Too Long:Didn’t Read.

Those ones I had to google.

@September29: Yeah I totally had to google that one.  I think they do use BFN as well!

@thursdayschild: I’ve used TL;DR a bunch online, but never on here because I think I’d get flamed for snarkiness if I ever did, and rightfully so, haha!

Thanks for this!!!  mucho helpful links!

 

I seriously turned my nose up at CM and EWCM tho – and I do contraceptive nursing!!  Haha!!  Just didn’t realise it would be something people would talk about, let alone have an abbreviation for – maybe that’s because I’m not TTC!!!  πŸ˜‰

Ha.  I thought BFP meant ‘barely freaking pregnant’
