I've been reading blogs from people trying to conceive and trying to figure out what all the acronyms mean. I've figure some out, and I'm going to put them here so I remember, though I don't really see myself using these.

TTC - Trying to conceive
TWW - Two week wait
BFP - Big fat positive
BFN - Big fat negative
AF - Aunt Flo
OPK - Ovulation predictor kit
CD1, CD2, ... - Cycle Day 1, Cycle Day 2, ...
RE - Reproductive endocrinologist

It took me a while to get it too. I would also add DP=Dear Partner or DW=Dear Wife to your list.

MW = Midwife

I wish I had come across this post last week. I've been wading through acronyms for the last several days. There are some on here I hadn't figured out yet (BFN/BFP) - so thanks!
