    • Hey! Thanks for asking! Emotionally, I’m much better. I’ve been working on a post but I got incredibly busy with work and then the last 2 days I got so sick with the flu that I couldn’t even lift my head from the pillow! Today I have to push through being sick to get some health insurance paperwork done or I’ll be uninsured for a month. Ick. It means a lot that you asked. Thanks again.

  1. Hey there, just found your blog. I am in the same boat as you — surprise fragile x carrier, and starting my first round of IVF. Thanks for sharing….feels less lonely knowing there is someone else out there.
