I just came across this one in a funny thread: EWCM

Anyone??

TWW or 2WW = two week wait - the time between ovulation and your period.

CIRC - is short for circumcision...if there is another meaning related to ttc, I don't know what it is.

FF = Fertility Friend (online charting service)

Crosshairs are the lines on your BBT chart. Vertical indicates ovulation day, horizontal is your temp coverline.

boy friend or best friend.

Bumping just means that you posted to the thread, therefore bumping it up to the top of the forum or the new posts list.

ahhh, that BF...

That would stand for breastfeeding.

Sorry, trying to figure out abbreviations in the context of TTC...and that one could mean either.
