Yes, it's hard to keep up with all of the abbreviations!  The standard ones are the following:

AF = Aunt Flow (your period)
BBT = Basal Body Temperature (taken with a fertility thermometer)
BFP = Big Fat Positive (pregnancy test)
CD = Cycle Day (CD1 begins on the first day of AF)
CF = Cervical Fluid (interchanged with CM = Cervical Mucus)
HPT = Home Pregnancy Test
IF = Infertility
IUI = Intrauterine Insemination
IVF = In Vitro Fertilization
LMP = Last Menstrual Period
OPK = Ovulation Predictor Kit
TTC = Trying To Conceive
