What do these abbreviations stand for?

I am not too familiar with internet slang, and I'm having a hard time figuring out what some of the abbreviations used here stand for :)

I'm assuming SO is significant other and LO is little one (please correct me if I'm wrong!) I've also seen DH and some others that of course I can't think of when I go to ask the question! Is there a list or something that explains them? Can someone please just rattle off all the ones they can think of?
