Friday's Connections Abound--Weekend Edition

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The Lost and Found page is permanently located beneath this current post. Old Connections Abound can be accessed via the date or subject archives listed on the sidebar. Check the submissions page, FAQ, and ways to get involved for additional information. Email me at with any questions/concerns.

Lost and Found is open to anyone in the infertility, pregnancy loss, adoption, pregnancy-and-parenting after infertility, assisted conception, living child-free after infertility or loss community (as well as anyone I inadvertently missed on that list). Please support the list as well as anyone posting announcements below.

Connections Abound


  • Deathstar is looking to connect with other bloggers experiencing male factor infertility. If you are also writing about male factor, please head on over to her blog and let her know about your own.
  • Do you live in Eastern Washington / Northern Idaho? Kami from Are We There Yet is looking to meet other bloggers in the area. Contact her through her blog by clicking on the title.
  • The Road Less Traveled started a new forum for single parents this week. If you are a single parent by choice, please go over and check out the new forum: Baby Makes Two. It would also be great to swing by Road's blog and congratulate her on her new endeavour because it rocks.

Um, Mel, I just got a very unexpected BFP today. I'd love some advice from fellow stirrup queens about what the heck I'm supposed to do now! We haven't been in treatment for a year and without the safety net of the REI clinic I'm a little worried that this will go to hell in handbasket the next time I sneeze. How to convince a normal OB to give me a beta so I can see what the heck is going on??

I want to add Wiscadoo at to the "lost" list. Been wondering what her and her son are up to nowadays!
