  • I recently saw a post about the evolution of "BM"

    It starts out as Brides Maid

    Then Bowel Movement

    And finally Breast Milk.

  • THANK YOU!! I've been trying so hard to decipher all the acronyms. A cheat sheet is EXACTLY what I needed!

  • Not sure if this will make you laugh, but I didn't know what f/u meant...and at work with have "monitors" to check to make sure we are following procedures correctly and all our files are in order..they turn out to be a pain for everyone involved and very stressful.  The supervisor for my monitor sent me an email titled "FU for Monitor"  I was a little offended, although I figured she didn't mean it in the way I took it!  It took a few days for me to figure out what the abbr. actually stood for!
  • Thank you! I was reading a post the other day that talked about someone being on or having STD and I thought "Man, I just really wouldn't want anyone to know I had caught something like that!"
  • Two questions.  1) Where can I find the "official" glossary that PP mentioned?  2) What about "This"?  I see people say that in response to a post, but haven't figured out what it actually means.  (I've assumed that it's some form of "I agree with you.")

    You are correct. When people post "this" they are saying that they feel or think "this" too.  The Bump Board Glossary is on the bottom left of the page.  Scroll all the way down and under "My Boards" it's the 8th link.

  • I am still not sure what UO thursdays are? I know it's similar to FFFC because of the type of posts in it but what does it stand for?

    UO stands for Unpopular Opinion

    and 1ht is One Hand Typing (because you're nursing or pumping)
