They're in the drop down menu next to where it says 'Talk' towards the top left of a page (not as obvious a place as where they used to be).

A lot of those are IVF-specific. Are you having fertility treatment?
OTD - official testing day - the day you pee on a stick (POAS)
PUPO - pregnant until proven otherwise - the time after they put the embryo back inside you when you are technically pregnant, up until the time you test to see if it has implanted
6DP5DT - 6 Days past 5 day transfer - it has been 6 days since they put a 5 day embryo back. Embryos are created in the lab and are then usually put back inside the womb when they are 1, 3 or 5 days

BF is boyfriend or breastfeeding
