749th 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.

Connections Abound

  • Advice: Bébé Suisse and her husband recently found out that he has a sperm morphology issue (teratozoospermia or teratospermia). She would be happy to receive any advice, suggestions, resource guidance, or blog links that relate to this specific component of male fertility.

NEW BLOGS (started in June or July 2012)
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)
  • Peesticks and Stones is celebrating her blogoversary today.  Go wish her congratulations.
  • Infertile Turtle is celebrating her anniversary on Tuesday.  Go wish them congratulations.
  • Happy-Go-Lucky is also celebrating her anniversary on Tuesday.  Go wish them congratulations.
LOSS REMEMBRANCES (send in the dates of loss anniversaries and I will post them on the correct day)
  • 7-7-12 was the anniversary of Knottedfingers' Calypso's death. She just needs thoughts as she's probably remembering things right now. Her daughter's funeral was 7/13/2007.
  • None Today.
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)
  • Amy has been spending the last few days wondering if the heartburn, tiredness and sweating is because of spicy food, chasing a toddler and 102 degree weather or if she could miraculously be pregnant.  Please send some positive vibes her way.
  • Serenity's beta on Friday was negative. 
  • Glitter & Rainbows has finally made the hard decision to forgo any more fertility medicines or procedures. She and hubby will keep trying the old-fashioned way, with the acceptance that what will be, will be. Support would be appreciated.
BEDREST BABES: on bedrest following infertility or loss and needing support. Drop in on them and keep them company. Blurbs running underneath the "new" line are from this week, and the ones above that line will disappear on Sunday. Please do not re-list bedrest blurbs.
  • None Today.
