Thursday'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 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

  • I cannot thank enough those who have donated or posted the code for Team On the Road. It truly means the world to me to have your support and I have a feeling (Allison, speak up, I don't want to put words in your mouth) that it means the world to Allison and Shannon to see their children making a difference in this world. We've currently raised $822! If you would like to help with our March of Dimes fundraising, read this post and join along. There are at least five things you could do!
  • Question: Waiting For My Turn has post a few questions about her upcoming IVF cycle--namely medications and day-3 vs. day-5 transfers. Please go over to her blog and answer them.
  • Missing Blogger: Sunny Jenny asks, "Does anyone know what happened to Jenny From the Infertility Block?" If you have an answer, you can post a comment here for others who are wondering too or contact Sunny Jenny through her blog.
  • Interesting Post: BabyShrink has a question up about Parenting after Infertility if you want to jump into the conversation.
  • Next Installment Tomorrow: JJ's Five for Friday over at Redbook has another post tomorrow. Click on the link for last week's version.
  • Final Countdown to the International Infertility Film Festival (IIFF). Movies start screening this Saturday.
  • 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 February or March 2008)
BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES (celebrate your birthday or blogoversary with the community. Send me date at any point and I'll post them on the correct day)
  • None Today.
LOSS REMEMBRANCES (send in the dates of loss anniversaries and I will post them on the correct day)
  • None Today.
  • 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, celebratory retrievals, transfers, and other good news)
BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company.
  • A Uterus Divided has posted a "soft" announcement. They are holding off fully announcing until they see a heartbeat, but you can still go over there and give her support as she waits for her beta following positive pee sticks.
  • Miss E would like people to keep things very low-key right now too. But a beta of 840 14 days post a 3-day transfer!
  • My Face Tube is getting positive tests. Her first beta was 70! Give her congratulations and good luck for the second beta.
  • None Today.

Oh,you have no idea how much this means to us! I'm blown away by the response in just two days. We're just a few weeks away from what would have been my due date and this is giving us something positive to focus on during a really difficult time.
