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

  • U.T.E.R.U.S. update: Jen has been keeping a page with photos of each item. You can also see all items for sale on our eBay page.
  • More U.T.E.R.ine support: (can you tell I love writing that?) Io is having a contest to benefit Cali. Go over and enter.
  • Connection: Kelli is looking to connect with others who have been through a medical termination. "I had a D&E 8 days ago at 20 weeks. we found out after our quad blood screening and level 2 ultrasound that our baby girl had a rare neural tube defect. This defect was not compatible with life. Since the procedure I have been an emotional basket case. If anyone is in a similar situation and would like to talk please email me at (it will go to my junkmail so please put something in the subject line that will catch my attention)."
  • Just Getting Started: The second half of the blog explanation comes clear today at Off the IF Record. Lois Lane has posted her first non-Lois Lane vent that was submitted by a reader. Go over and weigh in with your thoughts. Or submit your own vent.
  • Team On the Road continues to truck along. I cannot thank enough those who have donated or posted the code for Team On the Road. We've currently raised $1158! 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!
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Happy half birthday to Nick and Nora. Go sing them a little song.
LOSS REMEMBRANCES (send in the dates of loss anniversaries and I will post them on the correct day)
  • Saturday is Devin's unfulfilled due date. Natalie and Den will be planting a tree that day and it would be wonderful if you could give them little seeds of support in the form of words.
  • Schatzi lost one of the quints. Please go over and give her a hug.
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)
  • Nica is bleeding and her doctor has told her to come to Labour and Delivery. Please go over and give her support.
  • A Little Bit Lost is missing Noah on the five month anniversary. Please go over and give her a hug.
  • KatieM at Our Second Chance is having an u/s tomorrow and she's pretty nervous. She could use some good thoughts and strength from us.
  • Sacha had to be taken back to the hospital today and admitted to the NICU for jaundice. Go over and give Ms. C some support.
  • Rian is now okay, but she had a big medical scare when she discovered she had both an ectopic and uterine pregnancy at the same time. She lost her right tube. Please go over and give her support.
BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company.
  • Carey at Uterus x 2 had her twins! They join big brother Hudson. Go over and wish them congratulations on Kate and Bennett.
  • Anna is at the hospital delivering the twins as we read!

I had no idea our ebay page was the UK ebay! I must have missed something or was my usual "clue free" self.
How does this impact the shipping costs from US cities?
