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 :)
