Good luck!!! In reality I think that your chances look quite good–with a good SA and growing follicles you probably have the chance of a “normal” fertile couple for this cycle.  Obviously like you said it’s not 100% but being brought up to the “normal” level is pretty darn good.  As far as I’m aware, your AMH seems to be a bit low if that number is accurate, but as long as you’re ovulating right now it doesn’t really matter (AMH is egg #s, not quality, so as long as the clomid is maturing them you are fine).

I just had my first femara + iui cycle and I only had 1 follicle by trigger and got pregnant on it, so it definitely does happen!

How was your lining? Are you doing a trigger shot?

I’m in the TWW following my first Clomid + trigger cycle. We just did TI vs IUI so I have no advice, just wanted to wish you luck!

MsYankee :  sounds like everything is going well then!  I know I went into it thinking “I know the odds are always more likely that I won’t get pregnant, but at least I got the odds as high as they can go!” 

For the trigger you’d probably already know if they were going to do one because they usually are ordered from specialty pharmacies ahead of time.  But they are really for maximizing timing because they force ovulation ~36 hrs after administration.  But if you’re being tracked for the LH surge either via bloodwork or at-home urine tests you can still get pretty good sense of timing.  In the end, my body surged before the trigger anyway so I don’t think it actually did anything for me, so it’s not necessary just useful for timing or if you have known issues with ovulation.

Best of luck bee! I’m currently 19 weeks and had success with clomid + trigger shot + IUI (we used donor sperm because we’re in a same sex couple).

Sending you positive vibes lady.
