757th 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.

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)
  • A Cop, A Nurse, 3 Dogs, and Maybe Baby is celebrating her anniversary on Tuesday.  Go wish her congratulations.
  • Mrs. Gamgee is celebrating her birthday on Tuesday.  Go sing her a little song.  And then her blogoversary is on Wednesday!  A congratulations are in order.
LOSS REMEMBRANCES (send in the dates of loss anniversaries and I will post them on the correct day)
  • None Today.
  • 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)
  • Our Pathway to Parenthood's first IVF attempt in June resulted in severe OHSS (hospitalization) and they were forced to cancel their embryo transfer.  Thankfully, they had six embryos frozen.  They transferred two frozen embryos on September 6 and are hoping and praying that this cycle provides them with a healthy pregnancy.  Their beta is scheduled for September 17. 
  • Elizabeth received devastating news about her son on September 11th.  Please go over there and give her a lot of support.
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.
  • After IVF, severe OHSS and a large subchorionic hemorrhage, EndoJourney is now faced with a dynamic cervix that is threatening the length of the pregnancy. She is 24 days away from viability and months away from term and is scared.
  • None Today.
  • After a very bump start, Seriously's adoption is finally forever.  She just received her Adoption Order. Please go on over and celebrate with her and her forever daughter!  From RPL to Adoption, she would not have survived this journey without her ALI girls!

Thank you for all your thoughts... I'm so so sorry that I've been off blogging for so long and haven't gotten back to you all sooner :( It's been a hard month or so... and I haven't wanted to think too much about TTC after starting our last cycle then finding out that there is yet another cyst to contend with !! So at the moment my TTC and life is on hold. I've tried to fill it with other things... but feeling like my heart really isn't in this last cycle. Not sure why... maybe protecting myself from it's inevitable failure. I wish that I could find peace with it all but finding that hard. I'll hopefully get back to writing in the next week or so, but have taken an unexpected break from blogging... missing you all but feel like my repeated failed cycles must get a little boring :( I'll hopefully get back to all your emails today and sorry again for my absence :(( Thinking of you and love to you all xoxo
