Exclamation Help for those new to TTC (Trying to Conceive)-Abbreviations/Acronyms

I figured maybe we could compile a list of the abbreviations we tend to use for those who are new here and not used to the lingo.

TTC=Trying to Conceive
BD=Baby Dance (see the next one on the list if still unclear)
DTD=Do the Deed
CD=Cycle Day
CM=Cervical Mucus
CP=Cervix Position
OPK=Ovulation Predictor Kit
O=Ovulation
DPO=Days Past Ovulation
LP=Luteal Phase (the time between Ovulation and when AF comes)
POAS=Pee On A Stick
HPT=Home Pregnancy Test
BFP=Big Fat Positive (as in a positive HPT)
BFN=Big Fat Negative (as in a negative HPT)
AF=Aunt Flow (need I say more? )

FF=Fertility Friend (a website where you can chart your cycles)
TCOYF- taking charge of your fertility (Thanks, Candice!)

Pregnancy tests:
FRER=First Response Early Results
CBE=Clearblue Easy


Am I forgetting anything?

It's the countdown that comes after you've ovulated (in your luteal phase). Most women wait until about 12 DPO or later to start testing for pregnancy.
