You ladies are very interesting, and I can relate to all of you!!! BUT, I get a lillll lost with all the abbreviations! It took me a good half hour of research to figure out CIO! Lol. Can somebody break it down for me please!
wifeyintraining responded:
on our OLD boards there was a link to all the abbreviations.. but alas.. who knows what happened to them since the big change. (sigh)

But here are some basics:

DH- Dear Husband
DBF- Dear boyfriend
DS- Dear Son
DD- Dear Daughter
BD- Baby dance (sex to concieve)
TTC- Trying to concieve
Trigs- something in the post is upsetting and could trigger an emotion
BFN- big fat negative (preggo test)
BFP- Big fat postive (preggo test)
POAS- Pee on a stick
CIO- Cry it out
BLW- Baby led weaning
BF- Breastfeeding
FF- formula feeding
HTH- hope that helps
JMO- just my opinion
TBH- to be honest

help me out ladies!

PS. if you are new, you might not know, but they just completely changed these boards and a lot of us are considering leaving.

LO - little one? im assuming? lol those are cute.

TBH we werent really doing a "BD" but it just so happened that i had a BFP when i POAS... 9 months later, me and DBF were blessed with our DD Aria Anne !!

That was fun =)
wifeyintraining replied to jmwjj's response:
ha yeah. LO is little one. TMI is too much information... if you see others you aren't sure of just ask. I have a hard time thinking of them on the spot.
