Can someone please explain some of the lingo/abbreviations on this forum?  AF, BFP, DP etc.  I know there are more.  Thank you!  It's hard to read when you don't know and are new LOL 

Thanks ladies! :)

Not gunna lie, I'm such a nerd and copy and pasted the abbr. list you sent and have it saved in another tab so i can reference.  I'm seriously lost reading some of these LOL.  Hahaha

Hopefully I won't either, but I have a feeling I will be.  It's worth the wait I guess ;)  I hope I get a BFP very soon!!!  Thank you!!! :)
