797th 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.

She has since welcomed gorgeous Caelan in March, and after noticing some quirks, has discovered that he has a rare chromosomal abnormality that may cause him some challenges in the future. Please head on over and offer support. 
  • After a miscarriage with normal FSH has anyone else seemingly stopped ovulating even while on Clomid? What was the solution? Familyofthree is really in need of some advice on this one.
