798th 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)
  • Good Egg Hatched is throwing a Hail Mary pass in the form of IVF with PGS following four miscarriages. She would love any words of encouragement and/or comic relief!
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.

  • Kaitake and her Hubby are delighted that their one-shot wonder worked. After over ten years of waiting, this first IVF has done the trick. Please pop over and celebrate, and keep hoping for a good second beta test on Tuesday.
  • Kerry and her husband recently finalized the adoption of their daughter. Stop by and tell them congrats!
