welcome to the boards- in the general forum there is a sticky thread for abbreviations...it takes a while to learn them all...even after a year of frequent posting, i am still learning more...but soon you will be a pro.

RE- reproductive endocrinologist
DH- dear husband/hubby
BFN- big fat negative
BFP- big fat positive
Me- 28 DH- 33 Male Factor
1st IVF- 12/07- BFP! Ella Michele was born 8/26/8
2nd IVF- 04/09 - BFN
1st FET- 09/09 - Chemical
3rd IVF - 04/11 - Embies didn't make it to ET
4th IVF - Fall 2011??

I felt the same way when I got on the board for the first few months. Here are some that you may see, and if you're not sure, just ask the ladies they are all great.
AF ~aunt flo
DD ~ darling daughter
DS ~ darling son
TMI~ too much information
FET ~ frozen embryo transfer

good luck!
1st IVF~DD 2004
2nd IVF~ 2008 BFP
Thank you Lord for this blessing
love and miss you gram and baby b
