665th 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.

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)
  • No Baby Ruth is struggling after finding out at her 8 week u/s that one of her twins stopped growing but the other is healthy and strong.
  • Jeri goes in for her beta today for IVF#1. She started experiencing light spotting yesterday. She needs prayers and well wishes for what will be a long day.
  • Meim (Tears Are For Babies) has fluid in her uterus that could cause the transfer to be canceled. The RE has a plan but she's freaking out a little and would appreciate your prayers!
  • Jessica had a positive digital pregnancy test and then discovered her 4th IVF didn't work out. It ends up it was a "false positive." Please go lend your support as she prepares to celebrate her 5th year anniversary TTC with this heartbreaking (and cruel) news.
  • LowFatLady could use some support. She got her first positive beta ever, but her progesterone was very very low. The nurse thinks it's either an early miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy, and not viable. Has anyone ever had a successful pregnancy from this?
BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company.
  • Kristi is on modified bedrest for cervical trouble and a subchorionic bleed behind the placenta. Please go send her some encouraging words.

  • 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!
  • Tigger has some questions about christening and baptism. Please head over and give her some advice if you can.
  • I. V. Effed gave birth to a boy on Veteran's Day - congratulations!
