    Welcome kkm
    I know how you feel!! We are not officially 'trying' for #2 yet, but that just means we're not timing or tracking cycles like last time just yet. I find it so hard to not get caught up with wanting to e pregnant already, looking at pregnant women and newborns lovingly!

    How old is #1? I don't have to much advice just all I'm doing is trying to enjoy DS (dear son) as much as I can. It's sure hard to forget about tho, but we found the one month we stopped actively TTC (trying to conceive) number 1 we fell pregnant so trying to use that logic to chill out and just let be what will be.

    As for abbreviations, there's a few threads with meanings of all of them but I'm on my phone so can't link sorry. Have a search around
