Wednesday'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

  • Kirtsy'd Pick O' the Day: Please vote for this one from The Lilith Blog. It is a very funny poem about receiving baby pictures via email. I especially loved the line: "Delete! To the trash! He’s a garbage pail kid now." How do you vote? Simply by clicking on the link above and then clicking on the post's title. Why the Kirtsy'd Pick O' the Day? Click on that link in the header navigation bar above for the story. And send me stuff!
  • 99 people already on the The Creme de la Creme List. Are you? Who will be #100?
  • Project That We Must, Must, Must Do and I Must, Must, Must Write With All the Information: So, I messed up this one yesterday. To view the address click on the link at the bottom of the post. The key is "gingerbreadboy." This is what I said yesterday: "This is pretty much the most fun I've seen in a bit and I'm going postcard hunting this afternoon. Fractured Rainbows has this Gingerbread Boy project and she has invited everyone to send in a postcard that her class will read telling the story of the Gingerbread Boy's travels around the world. Seriously, you must read the post and then get creative. I am so excited about this. This is even better than the traveling Garden Gnome." I sent my card out this morning--the Gingerbread Boy was at the White House helping W pack up.
  • Question: Babytorud says, "I had my 20 week u/s last week and they found a choriod plexus cyst on the baby's brain. We are being sent to see a perinatologist next week for a level 2 u/s. I am wondering if anyone has experienced this and what the results were. I am freaking out and would love to talk to someone who has experience with this or is going through it right now."
  • New IComLeavWe list opened for December (with a caveat about participating over Christmas). Come join along and increase your comments.
  • 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 November or December 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)
  • Are We There Yet is celebrating her birthday today. Go sing her a little song.
  • Kristin of The Fertile Infertile is celebrating her 39th birthday on December 6th. Please stop by and wish her a happy birthday.

  • Please continue to send your prayers and support to Cathi and Logan. Their third triplet, little Gwyn, passed early December 1st and joined her brothers in heaven. Funeral services will be held this Friday.
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)
  • On to Plan B has been chosen by an expectant mom to foster-adopt a baby boy due 1/15!

BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company.

  • Denise is on bedrest at home.
