Put down your beverage....

Yesterday I read a funny post at So I Wait For You about how her hubby gets frustrated with her posts and jabber because it's all too technical (all our lingo/abbreviations). So at the end of Cibele's post, she asked the question of how well our spouses/partners might do.

So knowing Mook would be a good sport, I emailed him a mandatory quiz. I told him (jokingly of course) that he had to do this quiz because I would need him to post for me around the time of retrie.val and/or I might not have the energy to post...so without further adieu, I give you Mook's version of common abbreviations/lingo. So if that need ever comes, just beware of what Mook will think you are talking about. Enjoy...I know I did!

AF – artificial fertilization
IVF – invetro fertilization
IUI – inuteran fertilization
IF – IF need be, we'll do it again!
PG – parental guidance suggested
TTC – ticket and transportation center
DPO – densely populated ovulation
BFP – best from peni.s
BFN – best from needle
POAS – piece of awesome sh.it
OPT – optimum prime time
CD – cross dresser
BD
– bad day

"yeah clearly i don't know as much as i should....i'm sorry; i do love you though more than words can say"

In case anyone reading needs a crash course in what terms really mean, go here: Bea's List of Acronyms

Oh I love ya Mook--what a sport. So I encourage participation from all spouses/partners--if anything, it will provide a good laugh for both of you--and we all know laughter is the best medicine!

    OK - that is a test I would have failed, but thank you so much for making me smarter, even if all of those acronyms gave me a slight headache.

  2. He sounds very sweet and funny, even if he's not quite up on the technical stuff. I can't even imagine what a densely populated ovulation might involve :)

  3. That is just too damn cute. (oops, I'm in love with your husband now.) No telling how badly my guy would flunk such a test.

  4. I like those answers too. I don't think S would even get one.

  5. That's hilarious! I always think about the acronyms and how it's like another language.

  6. That is hilarious. My hubby would probably score a "0;" I should give it a try.

    Yeah, I was just thinking yesterday how strange the IF "language" is. I throw these acronyms around, and most people I know would have no clue what I'm talking about.

  9. Very funny! Mine would not do much better, I'm sure.

    Glad you found my blog. I've enjoyed reading yours, too. Best of luck to you both! (And your OBGYN sounds awesome, BTW. Mine was strict about waiting a full year before testing (grr), so we had to go around her back and have T's SA done with his PCP. I'm glad we both trusted our instincts that something wasn't right!)

  12. He, He! You should test and see how he does after the IVF cycle! Then you can see if there's any improvement!

  15. Thanks for passing on the quiz… That was the first time ever that DH was really interested on reading a post. He was eager to know your husband's answers (very creative BTW). We both had a good laugh!! The truth is that does not matter how much they know but how much they are willing to participate in the whole process.

  16. That is so sweet! (And I mean that in a sincere, not patronizing at all, kinda way. Your hubby is all kinds of sweet.)
