624th 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.

  • Lost Blogger: A blogger writes: "Does anyone know how to get in touch with Betty Rubble, the author of the blog, I Married Barney, Now What? She had posted a few weeks back but then went PWP. We are in very similar circumstances and I would love to keep up with her journey."
  • Question: Lifebytheday asks: "To all of my fellow IF-sufferers, but specifically those who are pregnant or parenting post-IF, did you do anything non-(Western)-medical that made a difference in your successful cycle? Chinese medicine, supplements, special diets, old wives’ tales?"
  • Blog Move: Bon writes, "I officially moved from my old IF blog to a post IF/ adoption blog. I don't want to leave anyone behind so feel free to come over and read!"
