Wednesday's Connections Abound

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

  • Wish you had a Common Thread bracelet so you could have this identifying marker of community member? D Marie at Bella Vida has graciously offered 100 free bracelets to the first takers. Head over to her blog to learn more--especially how you can spread the word about Infertility's Common Thread. A simple idea from D Marie: add a link to the original post in your email signature that you use on bulletin boards to get the word out there.
  • Random bleeding + emergency sonogram = twins! A.M.S. found out this week that she is carrying double. Go over and wish her congratulations.
  • Nico got her (could it be?) period! And this is actually good news because she has hypothalamic amenorrhea. Head over to wish her congratulations.
NEW BLOGS (started in July or August of 2007)
BIRTHDAYS, ANNIVERSARIES, and BLOGOVERSARIES: Celebrate your birthday or blogoversary with the community. Send me dates in advance and I'll post them on the correct day.
  • Megan and Baron just experienced their fourth pregnancy loss. Please head over and give them some support.
MISCELLANEOUS SUPPORT:Bed rest, scary scans, OHSS, and a host of other reasons why these bloggers could use some additional support right now. Also, celebrations!
  • Elizabeth could use a hug right now. She just received a negative after a cycle where she had a lot of hope in the how the story should end.
  • Journeywoman is starting IVF soon. Go over and give her some good wishes and support.
  • The Other Shoe is in a terrible mood. Go over and give her a hug.
  • Foreverhopeful's sister has OHSS after donating her eggs to her. Please go over and give any positive OHSS stories that you have.
  • She's singing her heart out: Karaoke Diva is pregnant. Please go over and wish her congratulations.
  • It really is a Uterus x 2--Carey is pregnant too!
  • All is well that ends well: Shark Sandwich has their daughter at home and as he says, they're finally parents.

So that's why I got some new reader comments... thank you, Mel. Geez, now I'm crying again. Thank you.

Same here - I was feeling the love, which is always puzzling. Thanks so much.
