TTC Lingo..

I saw on Jen’s blog that she had made a page specifically for the TTC Lingo. I know i made a post but after seeing that it reminded me that months from now that TTC Lingo post isn’t going to be on my front page no more. It’ll be lost in the great archive of life. Thank Jen for the idea im stealing it 😀


I figured i would post on here the TTC Lingo. When we first started it took me forever to figure out what people where talking about from DH to 2WW. I was so lost.
