Friday'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 thetowncriers@gmail.com 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

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS

Old
  • Carole at The Journey From Here has gone to private. If anyone wants an invite send me an e-mail at caroleolson@verizon.net.
  • Not perhaps the most momentous of announcements, but I just hit 900 blogs on the sidebar and Stirrup Queen's Blogroll. Congratulations Unexplained Years for being number 900. Is it something to be happy about--that infertile men and women are talking it out rather than keeping it in? Or is it more sobering to think that there are 900 blogs about infertility and loss?
  • Shop Mom or Pop is open! This post is a grouping of people who are using their creativity to fund treatments or adoption (current or recently past). Support your fellow stirrup queens and sperm palace jesters by shopping at their stores when you need a gift. Write me to add your business (either currently established or started today) to the listing: the towncriers@gmail.com.
NEW BLOGS (started in September or October of 2007)
BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES:A new section. Celebrate your birthday or blogoversary with the community. Send me dates for October/November right now and I'll post them on the correct day.
  • Happy Blogoversary to Shlomit at You're Still Young. Go over and wish her congratulations on a full year of writing.
  • Happy birthday on Sunday (October 7) to Barb at Fertility Challenged in Florida. Go sing her a little song.
  • Michelle's anniversary is on Monday, October 8. It's their 13th anniversary! Go with them congratulations.
  • Ooops...I missed this one too. Meg at Journey to the Centre turned 30 on the 30th (of September). You can still go over and sing her song.
  • Happy anniversary to Sharah and her husband. 5 years today!
LOSS ANNOUNCEMENTS
  • Jen at The Mama Wannabe went in today for a methorexate shot. The pregnancy was ectopic. She really really needs your support now and for the next three months until she can try again. Please go over there and give her a hug.
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!
  • It is one year and one day after Di at It's My Life lost Leah. Please go over and give her a hug.
  • Karen at Upon Awakening needs a hug right now. Chemo is not working against her mother's cancer and it is continuing to spread. Please go over and give her support.
  • Farah at Fertilize Me is going in for IUI #2 on Monday. Go over and wish her luck.
  • Bethkyle's betas are going down. Please go over and give her support.
PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENTS
BIRTH AND ADOPTION ANNOUNCEMENTS
  • The Critter is here! Monica gave birth to Andrew on October 1st (at 4:44 p.m.--that seems lucky somehow). Go over and wish her congratulations.

Happy to announce I got a positive (or should I say, eight positives!) last weekend.
