Hey everyone! I'm Tiffany and have been with my husband for 8 years, married since June though. We have been TTC for about 7 months now so I'm hoping our time will come soon. I've lurked around here for a bit but figured it was time to just sign up already. I do have one question though, where do I find out where all the abbreviations mean? Some of them I have no idea what they mean

Hello and welcome. These boards are wonderful, you'll meet some great people. I can't seem to remember where I found the sticky that listed what all the abbreviations mean but, because I didn't know what any of them meant either, I copied and pasted them into a word document as a cheat sheet

I may have found these abbreviations in the Trying To Conceive section. I'm sure there are other abbreviations that are used in different boards but at least these ones will get you started.

Well I'm not new to pregnancy as I have older children but boy have things changed.
It's like going back to school and learning a whole new meaning of abreviations.
So thanks feel a little more informed
