Abbreviations - help!

I'm new to this and very uneducated about all this short hand!
Please could somebody explain what BFN, BFP, POAS, AF stand for? ...and any other abbreviations that I may need. I have come up with my own funny ones but I'm sure it's not any of those!!



  • BFN - Big Fat Negative (on a pg test or ov stick)
    BFP - Big Fat Positive
    POAS - Pee On A Stick (pregnancy test/Ovulation stick)
    AF - Aunt Flo (period)
  • Thanks Fiona.

    Sadly AF has dropped by tonight (clearly uninvited and not welcome) so that must mean a BFN for me!
