Help - I'm new and don't get all the abbreviations!

Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and don't get all the abbreviations you're using, can anyone help?
I've worked out the ttc one but the rest I haven't got a clue.
Me and hubby are hoping to start trying later this year, I've got to have a repeat smear test after the last one came back abnormal so ttc is on hold until after that but can't help reading up on the subject and love the babydust idea!
