Thursday'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

  • Tonight is Bea's Girls Night In: "on Thursday, November 1st, we're having a Girl-Blogger's Night In. Pour a relaxing bath, open a bottle of wine, get your favourite snacks and DVD together, bring a friend and do a facial, or just take the night off to read in bed. Blog about your evening and send me a link to the post. Then donate**, at the cancer council's website, the amount of money you would have spent on a night out. Let's make the fiftieth good deed one for the girls!"
  • Saturday is the 3rd International Infertility Film Festival!
  • Tomorrow is the first Blog Fair in the Lost and Found. Come tour password-protected blogs. There will not be a normal Lost and Found. All items sent will be placed in Monday's edition.
  • Leave a wish. Support a wish.
  • Jess asks: " Anyone know anything about Wiscadoo or Carrie from Stork Files? I miss them and worry about what became of them both, especially Carrie, since she was due about the same time as I am!" Carrie and Wiscadoo: check in?
  • Barb has a question about the antibody panel. If you've had this blood work done, swing by her blog and answer her question.
  • Waiting has moved. The new space is Are We There Yet?!. Move on over with her...
NEW BLOGS (started in October or November of 2007)
  • None today, but a huge list is coming on Monday.
BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES:A new section. 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's NYCPhoenix's birthday today. Please go over and wish her happy birthday.
  • Sunny's birthday is on Sunday! Go over and sing her a little song...
  • Soapchick's anniversary is also on Sunday. Go wish them congratulations.
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!
  • Wannabe RE found out that her potential adoption was a scam. Please go over and give her support. I can't believe there are people out there who fuck with people's emotions like this.
  • None Today.
  • It is with enormous pleasure that I tell you that Mama gave birth to a little girl this morning by c-section. Mama and baby are well (though Mama had to get off the phone quickly due to nausea).

Hey, thanks for posting my question Mel! You're a gem. :) I think we've worked out a solution that won't make me puke or writhe in pain though.
