Hi, I'm kinda new to this talk board thing and I wonder if someone can give me a quick run through on some of the shortcuts used like dd, ds, ds2, lo and lots of others as I can't find anywhere on this site that tells you what they mean.

at top of age by useful stuff is an acronym list which gives a list of a lot of the abbreviations used.
DD is dear daughter
Dh " husband
DS2 " son 2 etc

Look above where it says "Useful Stuff", click on acronym list-it confused the hell out of me too when I first started.

Melny, have you had a chance to look at the acronym list in the menu above, that should get you started wtih some. In the meantime, dh - dear husband, dd - dear daughter, ds - dear son etc numbers after dd/ds indicate order of children rather than age. Lol - laugh out loud or lots of love, btw - by the way, tbh - to be honest, iirc - if i remember correctly, af - aunty flo/period, ttc - trying to concieve. Sure there are lots of other common ones, those are just off the top of my head.

hth - hope this helps! and welcome to MumsNet (mn)

Thanks everyone I've had a look at the acronym list and it gives me everything I need. Many thanks.
