Monday'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 Mission: Impossible. Posted on a twin site, this article gives insight into what it is like to be pregnant with twins after enduring IVF and infertility. The article is much more about IVF and less about pregnancy. How do you vote? Simply by clicking on the words "this one" 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!
  • Free to a Good Home: "3 x 10 pack of ovulation sticks or 1 x 5 pack. Sticks are individually-wrapped ovunow brand. They expire 27th of March 09, so I have broken the box up into usable quantities. Free to anyone who wants to email me at with a postal address and preference for either 10 or 5 pack. Instructions can be scanned and emailed if desired, but most of us are pretty familiar with it, so I won't unless someone requests."
