I Want To Introduce Myself

Hi First Trimester Mommies,

My name is Elizabeth and I will be hanging out with you on the weekends. I am a wife and mom to a daughter getting ready to start kindergarten. Yikes!!!

Even though my First Trimester was six years ago, it seems like yesterday. It was filled with much excitement, many questions and lots of reading and researching!!!!

I am enjoying reading your posts and if I can be of help I will chime in.

I do have a questions for the frequent posting mommies-to-be. Can you fill me in on the abbreviations (DD, DH, etc and others not used often)? It will be fun to find out and also helpful to new moms on our community.

Hey Elizabeth! Welcome to the boards!
DD = darling daughter

DH = Darling Husband

HPT = home pregnancy test

FMU = first morning urine

DF = darling fiancee/boyfriend

PTL = preterm labor (though that one isn't really used on this board)

DS = darling son

That's all I can think of :)

POAS= pee on a stick

BFP= big fat positive

BFN= big fat negative

CD= cycle day

TTC= Trying to concieve

LO= Little one

Thats all I have for now. Some of them might be found more on other boards but they might come in handy.
