Abbreviation help please?


Hello ladies (and any gentlemen that might have tiptoed in..lol)

Can somebody please explain all the abbreviations people use on here, i'm pretty new to posting even if i have been registered for a short while, the only one i can guess is CM - Cervial mucus right??

But what on earth is all this BF, and BFN (and the rest, yes i know NOTHING)

Please please help me to understand what everyone is talking about, i feel slightly isolated...lol

Currently 6 days after embryo transfer and impatiently waiting

xx

Hi Graysmommy,

Thank you so much for your help, i might actually be able to understand some of the conversations now. I sat for 20 mins last night trying desperately to work out what some people were talking about, i ended up making up my own words to cheer myself up, and some of them were quite ridiculous...lol.

Right, time to try and read some more posts now i will actually understand some of them.

THANK YOU
