So, there's good news and bad news. (I am really forcing myself to look on the bright side. Right now, it just seems like bad news to me. I have to keep telling myself that it could be worse.)
Good news: I had 4 follicles on my right ovary and 2 on my left today. I am starting Bravelle this evening.
Bad news: with so few follicles, I am very unlikely to respond well to the drugs that I am taking (and paying $50 per dose for).
More good news: at least we are only aiming for 1-2 mature follicles (unlike IVF, where you really want a lot). I seem to still be getting one every month.
More bad news: We won't be doing IVF ever (with my eggs), it looks like. If I am a bad candidate now, I can't imagine what I would be a year from now, once we were actually able to save up our money!
