Hi, all the abbreviations are listed at the top of the General Forum. It definitely helps when we all use shorthand, it's a whole other language as you'll quickly discover.

best of luck with your tmt

Thanks souris, debra and sandra!
I had one EC and ET that was neg. Than 2 weeks ago had my first FET. I got back a bfg but on the second blood test my HCG levels didn't rise appropriately. I had to go back two days later and it is on track now. I have my first ultrasound on tuesday and I am nervous. I already found the different message boards for each part of the cycle - I am really glad that I found this board.
Thanks -
