What do the abbreviations mean?

I read these posts and some of the abbreviations I understand like OTC= over the counter, MC=miscarriage, BFP= big fat positive, and TTC=trying to conceive. I feel dumb because I do not understand all the ones that everyone posts. If any of you on here knows what they mean please please leave a comment with what they are. It makes it hard for me to understand some of these posts because I'm not sure what they mean. Also, does anyone know what DH means?

DH is dear husband, AF = aunt flo as in period. DPO = days past ovulation. CD = cycle day. DD = dear daughter, DS = dear son.  I cant think of any more that ive seen. It would be more helpful if you posted the ones you didnt understand and ask. Then someone can answer for you.  Good luck.

Oh just thought of another lol, BD = baby dust or bedded as in had sex lol.
