Tuesday'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
New
  • Let your inner activist shine. Twelve and a Half Fighting Back is launching on November 8th (Thursday). We already have links for the list. Let your voice be heard when it comes to getting mandated coverage for fertility treatments. Please send me all links for posts you write on your blog so I can add them to the list (thetowncriers@gmail.com).
  • An update for Mary: "My HCG dropped to 8 today. I went off my meds. We meet with the doctor on Monday to see if he has ANY idea why this is happening again. I am too emotionally exhausted from all the ups and downs to even let myself be sad yet. I'm sure the tears will come eventually." As always, you can leave Mary messages on this post.

Thanks for the plug for my new blog (The Road Less Travelled), Mel. Just a note, it deals with childless/free living after infertility as well as stillbirth.

Mary: I'm sorry about your loss. An explanation would help, but at any rate I wish you peace.
