659th 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.

NEW BLOGS (started in October or November 2010)
  • None Today (more added over the weekend)
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)
  • Jenni just celebrated her one year blogoversary! She has a beautiful post about what she would tell herself a year ago. Celebrate with her and tell her what you would have told Jenni when she started her blog a year ago.
LOSS REMEMBRANCES (send in the dates of loss anniversaries and I will post them on the correct day)
  • Amy just found out she is miscarrying. Please go give her support.
  • Dana lost her son Jacob at around 20 weeks in June and had a miscarriage in August. She is now 7 weeks, 3 days pregnant again, but just found out at her first ultrasound that it looks like there is no baby. She is such a sweet girl, and has been through so much. She could use all the love and support she can get.
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)
  • Whitney has just experienced a negative for IVF#4 and is feeling down.
  • Adele just lost her grandmother and is having a hard time feeling hopeful as she waits out her beta for this last IUI. She has had a very long road and could really use some support.
  • Alison has her first IVF egg retrieval bright and early Wednesday morning. Go wish her luck!
  • Olive and Fern are approaching the 3rd year ttc anniversary with a zero% chance of pregnancy on the occasion. They could use some love right now.
BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company.

  • An Offering of Love's partner is 26 weeks pregnant with twins and was just put on complete bedrest due to a shortening cervix. They could use some words of encouragement and stories of positive outcomes in similar circumstances.
  • You Found What In There is has recently been put on bedrest; she is experiencing pre-term labor, needs blood transfusions for her unborn little girl at 27 weeks. Please go give her a hug and some support!
  • B has seen a heartbeat at a scan at 7 weeks and all looks well. She and her husband are cautiously pleased and hoping this little one stays put.
