547th Issue of the LFCA

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The point of 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.

  • Barren Woman celebrated her 100th post last week!
  • Fearlessly Infertile will have her second ultrasound Tuesday to determine the viability of her pregnancy. Her doctor painted a grim outlook last week but she is still hopeful. Please stop by and wish her the best.

  • Jess at A Little Blog About the Big Infertility had her IVF retrieval canceled and was just told she can't convert to IUI. Go give her some support.
  • NotTheMama and her hubby have an appointment with a urologist Wednesday to discuss their options. This appointment determines whether they continue TTC or move straight to adoption.
  • Please stop by and flood Liv with loads of love. She is in the hospital suffering from post-pardum psychosis after the recent birth of her son. While she hopes to be released from the hospital sometime this week, she is asking for lots of comments to help support her during this difficult time.
  • Amber has a post about the ups and downs in a marriage, particularly during IF. She is currently experiencing the "downside" and could use some sympathetic ears.

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