Hi all,

I am new to this forum - only recently deciding to go off the pill - and I am having trouble working out all the abbreviations that are used... (?!?)

(I only just worked out all the ones used in the Wedding forums tongue.gif )

Any help at all would be great!!

Thanks a million.....

and for when you ARE pregnant:

TWW: Two week wait (ie the period in between conception and your period

MS: Morning Sickness

MC: Miscarriage (ugh)

CLAPA: Chest like a picnic area (ie how huge your boobs get - scary!)

OMGMAIE: Oh my God my arse is Enormous!!! (self explanatory)

IHSM: I Hate Stretch Marks

PBFH: Psycho Bitch from Hell (exactly what I was in the first trimester LOL)

ECB: Emotional crybaby (watch the news when pregnant and you'll understand)

GGG: Gimme, gimme, gimme (when cravings come in LOL)

IFYP: I feel your pain (this gives you free licence to slap the idiot who says this!)

I'm sure others more advanced in their terms can add some more to these biggrin.gif

AF  Aunt Flo (your period/mestrual cycle) 

BBT   basal body temperature

BCP   birth control pills 

BD   baby dance (intercourse) 

BFP or BFN   Big fat positive or big fat negative (referring to HPT results) 

CD   cycle day 

CM   cervical mucus 

CP   cervical position 

DPO  Days past ovulation 

FM  Fertility Monitor 

FMU  first morning urine 

O  ovulation 

OPK  ovulation predictor kits



You might also see some of us use:

ART = Artifical Reproductive Technology

IVF = In Vitro Fertilization

In my case you will also see:

IP = Intended Parent/s

ED = Egg donor

POF = Premaure Ovarian Failure

Many, many, many years ago (when I was younger LOL), we used to refer to our periods as: George is visiting. Don't know where George came from, but we all knew what we were talking about.

PCOS = Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

It's a condition where your ovaries create multiple cysts when you ovulate. It has a whole host of symptoms and effects, including, but not limited to, messing up your menstrual cycle and reducing your fertility.

Hence why people with it struggle with TTC.

I still often refer to it as george. My sister refers to it as george as well. It seems much nicer. " George came on saturday" - when I first refered to George infront of my husband he had no idea what I was talking about, and was asking who george was.
