Sounds good!! Definitely keep us updated and we'll keep hoping for you!
I was diagnosed with a subclinical hypothyroidism in October. My acupuncturist predicted it before I had the blood work, due to some of my answers to her questions (weight gain in the past couple of years, some sadness, tend to be cold). I didn't think much of the symptoms, though, b/c one of my closest friends suddenly died almost 3 years ago (hence, the depression), I completely stopped exercising and started eating a bunch of junk (hence, the weight gain), and I've always been cold.
Anyway, I now take a natural (Rx) thyroid medication. They said it would make me feel completely better in a matter of weeks, but I haven't noticed a difference. Hypothyroidism, however, can interfere with your ability to get pregnant and to stay pregnant, so I strongly recommend you get checked. When they do your blood work, just ask them to check your thyroid levels as well. The thing is, many doctors will say you're in a normal range when, for pregnancy purposes, you might not be. I think it's the TSH number that they WANT to see BELOW 2. If it's not below 2, my current RE is not happy.
Hope that helps!
Breezy; Thanks hun ;o)
Acupuncturist are smart ;) I hope so bad you get a healthy BFP VERY VERY soon ;)
AFM; Today I went in for my CD8 US b/w........well, I had this morning, 5 FOLLIES now in my one lil ovary ;)
21x15, 20x13, 17x15, 16x14, & 14x13!!! I was a little nervous & my RE says to me " I'm not one bit worried about you having quintuplets, it's just not going to happen, "IF" we get one good egg, that will be a success! Remember, (he says to me) only 1 out of 10 of your eggs are any good"!
OMGOSH!!!!!!!!! Good thing I like him! I said to him when he said everything looked good, that not too bad for only having one ovary, & being 40 1/2! He says to me, yeah, you're not getting any younger, it's only going to get harder"!
I though, WOW, GOOD thing I don't have low self esteem!!! I was laughing when the nurse was taking my blood, cuz I said to her how MEAN & RAW he is, & she quietly said, yeah sometimes I can't believe the things he says to his patients..BUT he just doesn't want to give out false hope, & a lot of RE's do that"
I think he just has "short man" complex LOL He's seriously like 5'2" ;) BUT I really do LOV his staff, & he's not too bad, I KNOW I probably bug him w/all my questions/comments, but I DON'T CARE LOL
Oh, & my e2 is great, it was @ 715.....so tonight will probably the last night for me on Gonal.....HOPEFULLY forever!!!! @ 225 IU's, & I go tomorrow & hopefully trigger ;o)
Thats it for now! Hope everyone is doing well!
SoCalTricia (Tricia): Planning TR in March
UPDATE: My TR is scheduled for February 20th!!! I'm nervous, excited...can't wait to get it over with and start trying to get pregnant! I'm hoping my sweet little angel is watching over us and giving his little brother or sister a push to come down here!!!
Great! It's alway's nice to have one's next move scheduled. And the one after that (trying to get pregnant!) Onward n' upward!
I am sorry I haven't been here in a while. I have been so busy with College, kids, and husband. Anyway, update for me: I am on CD 16, tried not to think about ttc this cycle, we were taking a break. Next cycle we will be back on track. DH has been taking Maca and a multi vit for the past month, his little swimmers needed some help to mature and get faster.
Me, still taking prenatal, flaxseed oil and now Maca too. Cross your fingers. I will keep yall posted.
SSBD to all,
I think I'll say I'm in the TWW, since I feel that I just ovulated (or am ovilating now), although 3 days early. Must have been that full moon.
Still all-natural, eating good food and taking fish oil and DHEA.
