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

  • Gonna repeat it again...Since LFCA may or may not get spotty (I have a feeling I'll keep posting it through BlogHer, though who knows what will happen since I heard I'm buying drinks and therefore may be stinkin' drunk), please send anything that you know will need to be posted between Thursday and Sunday to me by tomorrow morning. Not just Clickers; all of you guys too. I mean, anyone who has anything to post send it along. Perhaps I started drinking early. I'm still not being very coherent.
  • Last week of IComLeavWe sign-up for the month of July. And then commenting kicks into high gear on the 21st.
  • Roundup Extravaganza blurbs are due next Monday, the 21st.
  • Invite Only: T.op Ca.t (see how tricky I am with the google search thing?) was found and needed to go invite only. If you have not received an invite and want one, please write her at lifeoftopcat at gmail dot com.
  • Connections: PerchanceToDream would like to hear from people who have had success with an IUI after trying IVF. Contact her through her blog.
  • Questions: Mrs. Spit has questions about risk and talking about statistics and..well...head over to read the whole post and comment.
  • 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 June or July 2008)

Hiya Lolli!

I had a new blogger visit my site, and I don't remember seeing her on Lost and Found. Her diagnosis is blocked tubes. http://franticfrazzledandcoveredincathair.blogspot.com/
I couldn't put her in my reader, something about no feed, not sure what that is all about.

Thanks for all you do!
