Hello ladies! I'm new to the site & i'm trying to read some of the posts here but I don't understand some of the abbreviations, is there any way someone could point me in the right direction? I'm 28yo, one 9 yr old son, been trying for about a month on my second, hoping for a girl this time around but long as he or she is healthy and happy is all that really matters! My first time around I was 18 when I conceived and got pregnant within only a couple tries. Hoping this time around is as smooth but a bit worried since it's been so long.
