642nd 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.

  • Blog Move: Heath.er writes, "Ok, so basically my mother in law was found stealing all my pictures, etc. and being a heifer about it, so I DELETED MY BLOG! Yep, I did. BUT, I started a new one--with the old stuff imported on my very own, self-hosted spot. SO, this is where I am now, and I really want everyone to come and see me again!" Go over to the new space.
  • First Time Reading the LFCA: If this is your first time reading the LFCA or you need a refresher about how the LFCA works, please read this post. It has everything you need to know about getting your news in the LFCA.

NEW BLOGS (started in September or October 2010)
  • None Today.
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)
  • Mrs. Joyner celebrated her 2nd anniversary on the 4th. It was bittersweet because her husband is in the police academy, and they couldn't spend it together. Go give them congratulations.
LOSS REMEMBRANCES (send in the dates of loss anniversaries and I will post them on the correct day)
  • None Today.
  • Taylor Twins lost both babies -- Quinn and Trace -- due to premature birth. Quinn lived almost seven hours and Trace lived five days. Please go over and surround her with love.
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)
  • MelissaP05 has found out that none of her embryos made it to freeze. She could use lots of hugs right now as she waits for her beta.
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.
  • Amy is on modified bed rest with her twins.
  • Rachel is still on bedrest at nineteen weeks, but things aren't going as well as she'd like. She's opening at the stitch and starting to dilate. Please go support her as she hopes for more time.
  • Once A Mother is pregnant with twins, and has been put on bed rest indefinitely due to a large subchorionic hemorrhage.
  • Amy gave birth to Evan on September 27th! Go wish her congratulations.
  • Knocked up by Another Man delivered, at 35 weeks after bedrest following emergency cerclage, a healthy baby boy! Go wish her congratulations.

Oops - sorry - someone came up to me to chat and I pressed 'Publish Your Comment' absentmindedly (because I'm absentminded).

Isn't it great to see Jen at Knocked Up By Another Man graduate to 'Birth and Adoption Announcements' with her healthy bub!! :-)
