ICLW

Hi!

This is my first time participating in ICLW.

I'm Erika. I go by MrsDjRass on the Internet and I don't really know why.  LOL!  I am 32 years old and I am working hard to become a Mother!  Fibroids and diminished ovarian reserve are trying to stand in my way, but I'm not letting them...at the moment.  I am preparing for my first Frozen Embryo Transfer.

I have a tentative date for the end of this  month.  When my RE told me this IVF thing was going to be hard work.  I thought she meant physically.  Turns out my body can handle just about anything, it's the mental part that's kicking my butt.

I look forward to meeting new bloggers.

You seem very strong and I have no doubt that with the help of venting through the blog and the support from those who read it, you will make it through this crazy mental challenge!!

  7. You're absolutely right. Any process involving women's health is a long and stressful mental game! I wish you the best of luck!!

  11. Hi there via ICLW! I love that your screen name is totally random...ha! Awesome that your body has been able to handle most anything through IF...not everybody can say the same. I wish you much luck on this cycle!

    1. Thank you! I think I should clarify my statement about my body handling anything. The stemming was not fun, but that pain fades fast. The memory of failure doesn't fade as fast.
