2WW? BD? FRER? WTF Is Everyone Talking About?

I’ve always loved to read message boards (I think they reminds me of the AOL chat rooms of the 1990s). When I got married (and for two years after), I was obsessed with wedding boards. But now, I’ve got pregnancy boards to mull over. But the first time I checked out a board – I like and – I couldn’t understand WHAT anyone was talking about.  CD? 2WW? EDD? PNV?  What the heck?

So, here’s a simple guide to understanding the abbreviations commonly used in pregnancy message boards.  Happy chatting!
