Yesterday I got a call from my OBGYN's office saying that my 2nd lab results were indicating that I have hypothyroidism. Hypo-what?? She said my results weren't even on the same scale as to where they needed to be. Come again? I was pretty confused and concerned; I was still at work and didn't want to speak too loudly about my "condition." I did, however, ask if this hypothyroidism was related to my miscarriages. She was quick to say NO. Well, I got to googling (word, yes?) and from what I read, it's about 50/50..some studies show that the absence of the thyroid horomones while pregnancy would result in miscarriage and other reports are saying the two are not linked. I know you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet, but I would really like to learn why my husband and I lost two children. Obviously we're not infertile..we just can't stay pregnant! My 1st pregnancy I made it to 12 weeks and actually heard the heartbeat an hour before I miscarried, my 2nd miscarriage was at 6 weeks..random. Just nothing makes sense.
I am optimistic though..I'm going to my PCP on Friday to get prescribed some medicine to regulate the thyroid issue. From what I've read (yes I'm still reading) hypothyroidism is easily managed. I think she is going to put me on Synthroid?? Anyone familiar with this drug? I am anxious to speak more with my doctor regarding this hypothyroidism whatchamacallit. I should have a better update on Friday about it.
I am also getting my hair done on Friday..just a good ol' touch up on the roots and trim on the bangs. It has been over a year and I am still growing out the Victoria Beckham bob. ugh, so annoying. Well, happy hump day..whoops, I mean wednesday :)


  1. You can control it. My dad is affected by it and he takes meds to control it. I hope that this works for you! I had a friend who had several miscarriages and now her daughter is about to turn one!

  2. The thyroid gland is responsible for many mishaps in the body if not functioning accurately….It also includes, but is not limited to, heart arrhythmias, chronic mood swings, weight loss, obesity, and many many other things. My personal advice, follow up with your local doctor,together with bovine thyroid and explain the feelings you are having.
