....Yes, I am here and I am ALIVE!!!

Sorry for being MIA for so long!!!
The previous weeks have been very busy and hectic at the office. One of my coworkers got married and took 20 days off and another one is on maternity leave, so that means my tasks got “triplicated” and then I am also working on the closing of 2 big projects, so keep the fun going!!!….

Besides that I am fine… When I had my u/s appointment the doctor asked me for a lot of prenatal blood work tests and also a thyroid test. At the end of last year he asked me to have my thyroid checked and while it was within the normal range, T.S.H. was a little bit on the high side. Doctors like to see T.S.H. values at 2-2.5 and mine was 4.0. He didn’t give me any medication at that time but with the prenatal testing he also wanted to check my thyroid hormone levels again. Well, it turned out my T.S.H. had already increased and was outside the normal range, so I started medication to keep it under control and was asked to see the endocrinologist again. All the other tests came back fine.

I went to see the endocrinologist last Friday and everything was fine, I had been taking my medication for 9 days and my T.S.H. was already under control so that was good. She told me it is still early to know if I will need thyroid medication from now on. She will keep monitoring my levels and we will have a better idea if it is something that will stay forever or it just due to the pregnancy…. Only time will tell.

During my appointment with the endocrinologist, I learned that my doctor, who is a F.S., is the one who took care of her 3 pregnancies. I knew they got along very well but didn’t know she was actually his patient. I knew my doctor was a very good doctor but knowing that he was actually her doctor gave me even more confidence.

Overall I am fine, and have been feeling very well. Sometimes I have this strange feeling… I don’t know if it is m/s because it doesn’t happen just in the morning. I feel like I ate too much and I am “full”. So full that I feel that I have the food in my throat. It is weird. I have realized that it happens very often when I haven’t had anything to eat for a long period of time, so now I try to eat small snacks every now and then and that seems to help.

Even though I haven’t been commenting much on your blogs, I want you to know that I have been following them….

Sommer, I can't believe you are already 30 weeks!!!... It has been a long and tough road but you have done an outstanding job, ....keep on going you're always there!!!

So glad all is well with you. It's great that you're responding well to the thyroid meds and that your drs were proactive! Keep up the good news!
