    Default OMG! Crazy BH acronyms... ROFL!!

    I have never seen as many acronyms as I have seen on BH! I'm not the best at working them out either, so with some posts I am totally guessing what people are trying to say! You have no idea how long it took me to figure out "UTD" and "DTD"

    But there are a whole heap that I still have no clue on. So I'm going to put myself out there as a person who really doesn't get "text talk" and is really not too good with acronyms... maybe you can help me out?? Maybe you have one or two that you're unsure of?

    IMHO -
    IYKWIM - I dont even know where to start trying to figure this one out....
    BFP - This one seems to be important and I feel like I should know what this one is, but I dont!

    In my humble opinion, if you know what I mean and big fat positive (as in pregnancy test.)

    The one I'm stuck on is BD - I've gathered it's the same as doing the deed but what's it stand for? Lol

    Took me ages when I first started frequenting boards like this so I know how you feel.

    I'll help you with the one's you've listed:
    IMHO - In my honest opinion
    IYKWIM - If you know what I mean
    BFP / BFN - Big fat postive / Big fat negative. Relates to a positive or negative HPT (home pregnancy test).

    One that took me quite a while was DIG when talking about pregnancy. It stands for Due in Group. Drove me nuts for a while!

    ETA: BD stands for baby dance
