Hi there!

Hi Ladies,
I am new here, I am not trying now but not preventing as well… I found the Wedding forums very helpful during my planning and I made good online friends there, so now I am very happy that I found this group to read about your experiences to understand better what is happening to us in this TTC period… and also to meet people that are in the same boat… I loved the atmosphere of the group!
But as a beginner in this, I get lost sometimes with the language, could anyone help me with that?
what is DPO, BFP, AF… Am I forgetting any??? :)
I got the meaning for BFN and DH, but what do they stand for?
Thanks!!! And nice to meet you all
