    Great idea @BruinsBabe33 BBITBNE

    Oh, a few more:

    IUI= Intrauterine Insemination
    DE= Donor Egg
    DS= Donor sperm
    PCOS= Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
    FSH, AMH and HCG are all chemicals your body makes or parts of your body.
    HSG= is a semi invasive test to see if your tubes are blocked and how the inside of your uterus looks.
    AFC= Antral Follicle Count (how many eggs you can potentially make during an IVF cycle)

    That's awesome I'm so jealous!!! My company had 3rd row season tickets that I used to get for free all the time but I just started a new job so that perk is gone boohoo! Hopefully we will buy one or two games. I live out in the Worcester area.
