What Does ds and dd Mean? - Acronyms, Abbreviations, and Emoticons - Page 9

post #161 of 433
When you post to a thread it moves it to the top of the forum right? So the list of threads in any forum is in order of how recently they were posted on.

People will write "bump" or just a smilie to make that thread go to the top of the forum so more people will read it.

Help me please!! This has been stumping me for days and I have tried to be clever and figure it out but I am officially giving up!

IIRC?

I've seen it often lately.
post #163 of 433

Please tell me, its driving me crazy!
post #164 of 433
You can't bump a sticky silly!!

If I recall correctlly.

I didn't know either, someone had to tell me....heh.
post #165 of 433
thanks......that was starting to drive me crazy too!
post #166 of 433
oh my! If I can't bump it, what should I do? Maybe start a thread in TAO entitled "Please tell me what IIRC means!"

Anyone??

IIRC?

TIA!!

Your Mileage May Vary

As in, what works well for one person may not work as well for another; I used to see this a lot on cloth diapering discussion boards.
post #177 of 433
AH HA!!!

I knew it was something like that, but I couldn't get any of the letters to fit!

Thanks so much....I will sleep better at nights now!

They can be confusing, huh? The first time I saw dh in a chat room and I found out what it meant, I swore I would not use it. And for a long time I dutifully typed out my husband. I still use the full word often, but I use dh more now. In the CD (cloth diapering) board I was on, we used dd to mean disposable diapers as well as DD for dear daughter. My mom assumed LOL meant lots of love, so now on my family groups page everyone signs their postings lol and I can't figure out what is so funny.

And I know that one member here has GOT GD? as her senior member name and for awhile I thought she had gestational diabetes. LOL

The first time someone mentioned AF I had no clue what that was. She said it meant Aunt Flo. I said, "who is Aunt Flo?" I just call it my period. I had a college roommate who referred to it as her Aunt Sally coming to visit, but Flo makes more sense. I still say period and having sex instead of AF and BD (baby dancing, which doesn't mean dancing with your baby, it means doing the deed).

BTW, 1HT (one handed typing) and NAKing here.

Oh, the ones I'm still confused about are BFP and BFN. I thought BFP was barely faint positive, but that doesn't even make sense, now that I think about it. Oh, but I read this whole thread abd found this: BFN: Bald Face Negative (re: pregnancy test)

:LOL This struck me as funny since I don't write dh! I always write hubby.
