Anyone NOT have high FSH?

We moved on to DE after 2 failed OE IVF cycles. Our first DE cycle was a c/p, but most likely related to egg quality issues. I am 39.

My FSH has been elevated (11), but never all that high. I was a poor responder in my IVF cycles, but not terrible. We would get 6-7 eggs. Embryos transferred were never great. Best were 6-7 cells.

I worry that there is something else going on that they are missing. I would almost feel better if I had a sky high FSH or was a horrible responder to stims. Then, it would be pretty clear that my eggs were the issue and I would feel more confident that DE would work.

Just to clarify, my concern is not that we moved on to DE too soon. I am completely fine with using DE. My concern is that my eggs aren't the problem, but that there is something else going on and DE won't work either.

Due to a couple of borderline clotting issues, we are using lovenox this cycle.

Thoughts? Anyone else in a similar position (especially those who found success w/ DE)? Am I worrying for no reason? If so, feel free to tell me to calm down! I am just so nervous that this cycle won't work either.
