AF word in pregnancy liggo


I’ve been reading all TTC blogs in Malaysia and some for others countries, and they keep using AF word.

“Missed my AF…”

“Hello AF”
“Damn, why does AF have to come??”
Well, as I’m reading… I think can predict what it means… My suggestions would be period or menses. But I couldn’t think the exact words behind it. Then, as usual Mr. Google came and rescued.

Oh dear, it means…

AF - Aunt Flo, menstruation, period

Gagagagaga… Now I can start to use AF, DH, SOD in my future entry…

I also found a few other meaning of abbreviations in pregnancy lingo…
