Fertility Acronyms for Dummies

It's done! 

A list of fertility acronyms and abbreviations explained is now a page on the side of my blog.

There are about 175 definitions to fertility and pregnancy acronyms - common, and some uncommon. I've left the comments open and will do so for a while in case I've left out some obvious ones, or if you think I should add some more, or, of course, if I'm way off-base with some of them. I'll review in a month or so and do any updates needed. Also, there are some that, even though I know the definition, I don't know what they mean, so maybe I'll do a little bit of research for some of the harder ones - but it was important for me to get the list out.

Hopefully this will help the other virgins to TTC (trying to conceive ;-) with their journey - and with reading everyone else's blogs and go "yeah, I know what she's talking about!"

Thanks to those who helped out with links, etc. This is obviously not an original idea, but I thought it would be nice to have one place to come for help.


  1. I just wanted to say I love your writing and wanted to send some good luck wishes in your quest for a baby - you will be a fantastic Mum:) I've been blessed with 5 kids (loads of photos on my blog - loads of washing to be folded as well I might add:) I truly hope you get to experience the joy and wonder of a child of your own (I know you will) xox

  2. Thanks for your note and your good luck wishes - they are much appreciated.

    Sounds like you have a busy life. Your kids are beautiful, as is anyone you photograph ~ you are an amazing photographer!

    Take care ~ CLM

  3. Good luck on your journey, and thanks for sharing it with us. I'm going through the same journey myself (well, similar...heterosexual, but still want a baby more than anything and struggling to conceive).
