I have figured out most of the acronyms on this site - sil, bm, bf, etc., but I can't figure out dh - is this divorced husband?? I thought so until I saw in someone else's blog DD - so what the heck is that??

I always took it as my husband but I guess it probably does stand for divorced husband. Now that I think about it I don't like that much. Even though my husband was never married before me, it just sound like giving to much power to the past relationship. Just my opinion, and like we all know opinions are like a#$holes, every one has one Smile

I for the life of me couldn't figure that one out for sure. The others are so obvious. Since we are all gentlewomen, I vote for Dear Husband... Smile

We now have it definitively answered...Thanks Bobbi!! Now I won't have to wonder anymore and have some great NEW acronyms to use!

You are welcome! Of course, now I'm going to have to keep this as a cheat sheet, so I know what everyone is saying. Hee Hee Smile

I think that is because when you saw JMO it was secret code for “Thus Sayeth The Lord”…if it really was an opinion they were giving…you may have picked up on it! :O}

Make a GREAT Day!

I was wondering this myself...mainly because I figured it stood for something related to husband, but I have read some women on here refer to their boyfriends as DH so it got me confused.

*~So sayeth Nymh~*

You know, being new here, the acronyms really are puzzling... for one, walking into an OB/GYN office, the word "SD" just didn't sound right. lol

And then "SS" made me think of Social But I took DH as Dear Husband after reading some posts, so I just went with the flow. I don't know what some of them are, but after reading around, you get used to it.
