12 DPR - An update in code

One of the websites that makes me smile is called 999 Reasons to Laugh at Infertility. The author does a pretty great job at bringing to light the crazier side of infertility. Reason #993 is "You can have a whole conversation using fertility acronyms." It's true - there is an acronym or short-hand version for everything. Here's my update...can you figure it out?

It's 12 DPR and 10 DPT, but it feels like this 2WW will never be over! I'm about ready to give in and take an HPT (an EPT at that), but if I get a BFP, I'll just think it's false, and if I get a BFN, I'll cry. So, I'm staying strong and waiting for my b/w on Friday. Overall, I'm feeling good--less crampy than I was on Monday. My DH has been so wonderful. He's remained positive and hopeful...even when I've been sure AF was coming. At this point, I just want Friday to be here so I can find out if this IVF was a success!

The Key
DPR/DPT = Days past retrieval/Days past transfer
2WW = 2 week wait
HPT/EPT = Home Pregnancy Test/Early Pregnancy Test
BFN/BFP = Big Fat Negative/Big Fat Positive
b/w = blood work
DH = Dear Husband
AF = Aunt Flow/period
IVF = In Vitro Fertilization


  1. Praying, trusting, hopeful, claiming a BFP :)

  2. This is pretty funny ;-) One more day!! AAHHHHHHHH!!!

  3. I agree with Kelly - this made me laugh! and eeeek! can't wait for tomorrow!

  4. I got them all! :) So excited for you! Praying everything is POSITIVE!

  5. Thanks, gals!!! It's so great to have a bunch of cheerleaders!
