Default Acronyms

I have been on this site for a little while now (a couple weeks I think), but there are still some acronyms that I haven't figured out.

The ones I think I've figured out are:
TBC: The Baby Corner
TTC: trying to conceive
PITA: pain in the arse
IMO: in my opinion
IME: in my experience
PG: pregnant (or pregnancy)

Now the ones I'm having trouble with are:
DH, DS, AND DD: I know H, S, and D are husband, son, and daughter...but what does that first D stand for?

POAS: I saw this one in a TTC thread and couldn't figure it out

If I've gotten any of the ones I think I know wrong, please let me know. And if there are anymore that anyone can think of that I might come across that would be great! Thanks!

The D in front DH, DS, and DD is for Dear, at least I know it is for DH, so I am assuming it is the same for DS and DD.
