NEW BLOGS (started in October or November of 2007)
  • None today, but a huge list is coming on soon.
BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES: Celebrate your birthday or blogoversary with the community. Send me dates for November/December right now and I'll post them on the correct day.
  • It was Familyof2's birthday last Thursday. It's not too late to go over and sing her a little song.
  • Two dogs passed away this weekend: Jack from Life of Pixxiee and Chilli from TTC with DH Through IVF... Please go over and give your condolences to their families.
  • Spunketta continues to thrive, but Nica's other twin, Scrappy, had no heartbeat at the last sonogram. Please go over and give her support.
  • Meghan's positive HPT turned from positive to negative over the weekend. She still goes in for her beta, but please go over and give her 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!
  • A member of our community really needs support right now. Ann from The Unlucky 20 Percent finds out today if her baby has bilateral renal agenesis, a fatal condition. She is currently 20 weeks.
  • Kir of Kir's Corner is on bedrest right now. Please send her well-wishes at She is checking email every other day and could use the boost.
  • Eggs in a Basket needs your prayers or good thoughts. She writes: "we are sorta canceling this IVF cycle. We have returned to the mother ship to rally around family as one of our beloved family members battles a very serious illness. Right now, things are touch and go, and nothing is looking very good. So, we've decided to delay the IVF schedule and just "cycle thru" until January."
  • Tash at Awful But Functioning could use some support right now. They are trying to decide if they want to have another child...and what road they would go down if they do. She is just coming up on her 9 month anniversary of her loss date as well.
  • A negative for New Midlife Mommy. She could really really use some good thoughts and hugs right now.
