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 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

  • Today is the 50th Connections Abound! Happy anniversary, little Lost and Found.
  • From Beth: " Anybody know what happened to Smarsh? His blog hasn't been updated in almost 2 months. Hope all is well with him." Smarshy, come out, come out wherever you aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare.
  • An update from Mary: "Someone is really messing with me. My numbers EXACTLY doubled. I test again on Friday. I don't want to go on this roller coaster again if we don't get the prize at the end. I don't want to start hoping, but it is creeping in. We never have had a number that doubled before. What to think?"
  • Leave a wish. Support a wish.
NEW BLOGS (started in September or October of 2007)
  • None Today.
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.
  • None Today.
  • None Today.
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!
  • Sharah has her professional licensing exam tomorrow (Friday). Let's flood her comments box today with encouragement and good thoughts to give her energy for tomorrow's 8-hour exam.
  • Katrina at A Single Woman's Journey to Motherhood is having blood sugar issues during her pregnancy. This isn't a real shock because she had them with her first one but they are worse earlier this time. Please go over and give support--especially if you know anything about low blood sugar.
  • An excellent ultrasound appointment for Nikole at Babylust. Heartbeat AND lots of movement. Go wish her congratulations.
  • Sniffling with joy right now because I still remember the night Katd was meeting with the biological mother (which she probably remembers even clearer!). And now Lily's adoption is finalized! Please go over and wish them congratulations.
  • Artblog is passing along a message for all (on her blog too): "Cate at Black Fingernails Red Cordial wrote me an email to tell me that she's had a beautiful little girl called Isobel (beginning of October) and both she and mum are doing great and to pass the message on to you all. She's having problems accessing her blog and cannot update but when her routine settles down she'll fix it and catch up with everyone." Leave congratulations on Artblog's blog and she'll make sure to forward them along. Possible pictures coming to Healing Arts too.

I logged on with just the purpose of asking about Smarshy. I hope someone knows what's become of him- he's written some stuff that made me almost pee my pants from laughing so loud.
