so today i had my first appt with my new OB, who specializes in hormonal imbalances. I have thyroid issues…. and they are not very well controlled as my family doc didnt want to change my dose because my labs fell ‘within a normal range’ (a freakin huge range mind you).
anyways! my new OB has raised my dose…. which will hopefully get it under control and help me start to lose a bit of weight again… he also ran some more labs as fertility issues run in my family. so we will have a clearer picture of what is going on….
and i am getting an ultrasound on my thyroid (i have a goiter… bc it was not controlled :() and my ovaries! im actually pretty excited and i am feeling soooo much better….
weve only been ttc for a few monthts but ive already experienced one miscarriage and i dont want to have another one due to my out of control hormones.
so he says we will be pregnant in 2012… hes confident 🙂 im so happy right now 🙂

@stephanie63087: Wonderful news! My family doctor also ran a panel on me, and I asked specifically for the hormones that effect TTC and she said they were all “normal”. My other doctor checked it and basically told me mine were all screwed up. I definately know how you feel! Good luck with TTC in the new year!

@stephanie63087: This may be the PMS talking…but I teared up when you said you’d be pregnant in 2012? I think it’s because I too have so much hope for that year as far as babies go….And i’m sooooo excited for you that you have a proactive doctor now! It always sucks when a doctor doesn’t seemed as concerned/eager about something as you do:( Yay for’12 & great Docs!
