Newbie

Hi - I'm new to the forum (and pregnancy!)
We have just found out that I am pregnant - have done 2 home tests - both positive and I'm seeing my Doc on Tuesday.

Fingers crossed I'll be on here a lot more in the coming months. Can I ask for a list of meanings for the abbreviations used by you guys ... I'm feeling a wee bit dumb.
