Here are a few I know:

bd = baby dance (sex)
dh = dear husband
dd = dear daughter
ds = dear son
cm = cervical mucous
af = Aunt Flo (period)
DPO = days past ovulation
O = ovulation
ttc = trying to conceive
bbt = basal body temperature

Thant is all I can think of off the top of my head

I also went on the chart, it said I was having a girl, which I would be very happy to have.  (A boy would also be great).
We will see if it works.

Just make sure you are using your lunar age and the lunar month when using the chinese birth chart.  There is some website (baby-hopes?) that will calculate it for you.

Here are some more:

HPT: Home pregnancy test
CD: Cycle Day
CP: Cervical Position
BCP: Birth Control Pill
POAS: Pee on a stick
OPK: Ovulation predictor kit

i used the one where you give the mothers age and month of conception.  I did it with my son and the baby Im carrying now it was right.  I did it on all my friends and it was right.  FYI my plan worked and that good for the results.  I planned to get preg when I did and keep my fingers crossed and prayed.

Here is a link to all of the TTC abbreviations, though most of them have already been covered already in the previous posts.

Trinity is a really pretty name.  I had a friend a few years back name her daughter that but spelled Trinity.  Your spelling is really cute too.
