It can’t just be me who finds acronym-heavy posts a little … challenging. I find myself skipping posts on other blogs because, frankly, I can’t be bothered to cross-reference the plethora of letters with the acronym guide.
So I have come up with a solution. I have created my own acronyms - which I find easier to remember - that don’t necessarily change the meaning of these posts:
DH - DickHead
TTC - Tired, Tetchy & Confused
BD - Bonked Diligently
OPK - Over-Priced Kit
BBT - Barren Body's Tantrums
PCOS - Pointless Crappy Ovary Substitutes
IUI - Intimate Uncomfortable Insemination
IVF - InVasive Faffing
RE - Resident Evil
BC - Breeding Cessation
Try it with our story:
DH and I have been TTC for three and a half years. We tried everything: BD timed by OPKs, and charting my BBT, but nothing worked. A few tests showed I had PCOS. So I had three IUI's which failed, I was due to have IVF in the autumn but following some more test results the RE has put me on BC for three months.
Come on, don't tell me it doesn't make for much more entertaining reading.
