The ABCs of TTC

While Googling around looking for information on TTC (trying to conceive), I came across something that stumped me.

“BD.”
What the hell was “BD”?

I figured out pretty quickly that it meant sex, but WHAT did it stand for? Bumpin’ Uglies Duglies?

After a little more Googling, I saw it stood for “Baby Dancing” (i.e. doin’ it for a purpose). Ah.

So if anyone else out there is super-slow on the TTC antonyms, here is my quickie cheat-sheet. Happy Baby Dancing!
