Tuesday's Connections Abound

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The Face-to-Face 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

  • Lianne is looking to connect with others who have the diagnosis of a hydrosalpinx--especially those who have had a term pregnancy with a hydrosalpinx. Contact her via her blog.
  • Put a list of common blog abbreviations under Operation Heads Up (#53 on the list. Thanks, Lianne, for the idea!). I know I'm probably missing a ton. Let me know if you can think of any other common ones pertaining specifically to IF/pg loss/adoption.
  • For those who wish to put a piece of visual support on your blog for Mary Ellen and Steve, Jess has created a candle image to honour the three girls. Anyone who wishes to place it on their blog can take it from her public site.
  • If you notice another loading slow down or receive error messages for Stirrup Queens or Lost and Found, please let me know. Now I'm nervous every time I add anything to the side bar!
NEW BLOGS (started in January or February 2008)
BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES: Celebrate your birthday or blogoversary with the community. Send me dates for February/March right now and I'll post them on the correct day.
  • It's Amy from A Somewhat Ordinary Life's birthday today (that sounded ten kinds of grammatically wrong). Her blog is invite-only so if you don't read her, you can always go here and request an invite and start reading (y'all know that there is now a password protected blog list on the blogroll and if you want to get on it, you just need to email me the necessary info. Check the list for a sample listing). Or, you can leave her good birthday wishes here and she'll collect them.
  • Carrie's birthday is this Thursday. Go over and sing her a song.
  • None Today.
MISCELLANEOUS SUPPORT AND CELEBRATIONS: Scary scans, anxious waits, OHSS, and a host of other reasons why these bloggers could use some additional support right now. Also, celebrations!
  • Michell at I Want to be a Mommy has been on a rollercoaster since her ET. She had a positive HPT but then started bleeding. What she thought was her period/miscarriage stopped today and she had a beta of 31. She tests again on Wednesday. Please go over and give her support while she waits.
BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company.
  • None Today.
  • None Today.

Yes, well, about that 'common blog abbreviations', it is so NOT ''missing a ton', it was so more than I expected.
Thank you so much.
