Friday's Connections Abound--Tiny Version

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 am sick. I am sorry. There is a huge amount of stuff that needs to go into the L & F. Either I'll post another version this weekend or it will be in Monday.
  • U.T.E.R.U.S. update: The US eBay account is now up and running, though for some reason, it's slow to publish uploaded items. In the meantime, we have about 40 items listed at UK eBay. We've made over $746 if all auctions closed today. And they aren't closing today. Add the $645 in direct donations and Cali is over a third of the way to her goal.
  • Team On the Road continues to truck along. There are now three teams walking in honour of Lennox and Zoe: Stirrup Queens, My Perky Ovaries, and In Search of Biscuit 2.0. I cannot thank enough those who have donated or posted the code for Team On the Road. We've currently raised $2471! 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!
  • Join Us: If you'll be in D.C. this weekend, come join The Order of the Plastic Uterus.
  • 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 March or April 2008)
  • None Today.
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)
  • Sunday will be the unfulfilled due date for K at Our Box of Rain. Please go over and give her a hug.
  • Saturday would have been Stacie's father's birthday. Instead, it will be his memorial service. Please go over and give her support.
  • 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)
  • None Today.
BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company.
  • Two weeks of strict bedrest for Babylust. Go over and keep her company.
  • Tracy is back on bedrest after the tear in her placenta became bigger. Please go over and give her support.
  • Life As a Sandwich is on bedrest this week due to placental abruption (though she is now home from the hospital). Go over and keep her company.
  • Mean Mama (originally BlogPicchiPacchi) is on bedrest at 29 weeks. Go over and keep her company.
  • Schatzi is on "increased rest" and will most likely be on bedrest for a large portion of her pregnancy.
  • All Roads Lead to Family is on modified bedrest.
  • When All Else Fails... is on bedrest due to a shortened cervix.
  • None Today.
  • None Today.

First off, I hope you are on the mend and feeling better! I can't believe you had it in you to post even when you felt are one tough cookie!

Secondly, thank you for the support and the mention in the Lost and Found. I feel honored actually. I really do appreciate everyone who has stopped by to give me a virtual hug and kind words of support--they were all so welcomed at a much needed time. You all are amazing.
