Good and Bad

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!

I have you in my thoughts and prayers friend. I know how you feel with the whole follicle issue cause mine never did get bigger than whatever they were suppose to be. I got really frustrated and stopped going to see my RE and that is when we got preggo with the 2nd month of Clomid. I know our bodies are different but I want you to know to stay in the Word and give God all the glory and praise for your good news and your bad news.

Again, I know how your heart feels.
