Friday's Connections Abound

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The point to Lost and Found is to level the support playing field. When LFCA works correctly, the newest blogger with the smallest readership can receive the same level of support as the oldest blogger with the largest readership. Anyone can submit news to LFCA by clicking here.

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

  • Happy Halloween!
  • The new IComLeavWe list opened last night and there is a way to do it even with Thanksgiving. Come join along and increase the comments on your blog.
  • Question: Ashley had a great ultrasound on Thursday, but is a bit concerned about blood pressure. Has anyone had "white coat hypertension" prior to and during pregnancy? Were you able to avoid being treated as hypertensive when you really weren't?
  • Harriet the Spy is the current book club selection and everyone is invited to join along.
  • Bridges continues to post daily. And it continues to be an amazing resource for insight into a multitude of worlds. And I'm not just saying that because I work on it.
  • 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 September or October 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)
  • Alexa's birthday is today. Go have some cake with her.
  • Loribeth at The Road Less Travelled is celebrating her one-year blogoversary today. Go wish her congratulations.
LOSS REMEMBRANCES (send in the dates of loss anniversaries and I will post them on the correct day)
  • C. at MyResurfacing is marking the one year anniversary of the death and birth of her son, Callum (October 31st/November 1st). Please go give her support.
  • Noswimmers is approaching her unfulfilled due date on the 4th. She lost Karis and Addison at 19 weeks. This day is going to be very rough for her and she doesn't have a lot of family support other than her husband at this time. Please go over there 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)
  • BattyNurse started Lupron on Wednesday and had a good job interview to add to the excitement.
  • Heather is going to have her egg retrieval this weekend. Wish her luck!
  • Jules is scheduled for her egg retrieval today. Go wish her good luck and a speedy recovery!
