@AlwaysLoverly:  DH-dear hubby DD-dear daughter DS-dear son NTNP-not trying not planning BFP-big fat positive BFN-big fat negative TTC-trying to conceive I’m sorry I literally can’t think of any right now! Maybe someobe else will be more help!

Well I know that there are lists floating around here that detail all of the abbreviations. But to start, DH = Dear Husband, NT = Not trying. 

A few others:

TTC – trying to conceive (pretty obvious)

BFP – big fat positive

BFN – big fat negative

CD – cycle day

NTNP – not trying not preventing.

I”m sure someone will chime in here shortly with the glossary!

I haven’t got a clue, but agree that the abbreviations are a bit out of control on the TTC threads.

NT or NTS–Nuchal translucency or nuchal translucency screening (a Downs marker)

U/s– Ultrasound

AF– Aunt Flo

DPO–Days past ovulation

OPK– ovulation predictor kit

CD– Cycle Day

They take a little, but once you see them a few times it gets a LOT easier!

@Atalanta:  The TTC abbreviations are nothing compared to the IVF and other fertility threads 🙂

What’s EW mean?  I always just read that as “ewwww”.  As in, “My discharge [or whatever] was ewwwww.”  Ha!

@MeeShell:  Oh silly me here I thought TTC threads covered everything from fertility issues to IVF.

@Atalanta:  Oh they do touch on fertility issues but if you go into an actual thread for IVF and such other procedures the abbreviations are much more intense!
