In what context did you see BB? That helps narrow it down.

Well i dont want to be inconsiderate but it was in a signature where they are listing their children, I thought maybe it might have been an angel baby but couldn't think of another abbreviation. Bubbly boy but though most used DS for a boy.

Ok a Storker is someone who announces the birth of the Storkees baby to the forum. They may also hold a blessingway or update the forum about the storkees pregnancy.

Hi it's not an abbreviation, but can you add 'Storker' to the list? It took me a long time lurking in the pregnancy sub-forum before I figured out what it meant...
