754th 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)
  • Amanda and her husband Kenneth just found out they had their 2nd chemical pregnancy after they attempted a FET. They are going to be moving on to IVF #2 this spring and would love to hear some words of encouragement to keep their hopes up as they try again to get baby #1.
  • The Mamas at Reproducing Genius have had their world turned upside down. Their almost 3 year old son was just diagnosed with leukemia. Please keep them in your thoughts as they find their way through.
  • Mash is in a dark place right now. The financials are in a disarray, she is not getting any younger, and their adoption screening is next year. It's time to take some very hard decisions about the struggle to have a child. Support her all you can.
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.
