fsh 16 but normal estradiol - poor egg?

Hi,
I've had three pregnancies and subsequent births with little issue. Last date of conception, however, was nearly six years ago with a normal pregnancy, delivery and baby.

Cycles changed a few years ago - 26 days apart to the T. WE've been trying since January and there were two times where I do think now I was pregnant. I'm 38 years old and otherwise healthy.

Went to fertility doctor. Did a blood test Day 1 (I know, should have done day 2 or 3) fsh was 5. Next month on day 3, FSH was at 16. All other tests were normal.

Big question - if the estradiol was normal, ultrasound shows 7 eggs in one ovary, 8 in the other, is the fsh indicating only poor egg quality? I know fsh can show poor ovarian reserve and/or egg quality. But if other results are okay, does this mean the eggs are bad? I'm fearful to even try or take Clomid this month if the egg quality is poor.

I"m new to this....any help is welcome.
