I met with my OB/GYN today to go over last week's blood test and u/s. She said my levels were 7140 for 5wks 2 days (is that good? anyone have what the appropriate levels are?) She also said my uterus is growing which made me cry because anything reassuring right now makes me feel overwhelmed.

The concerning thing is she noticed I have an enlarged thyroid. I've never noticed it before so I don't know if this is something new. She made an appointment for me with an endocronologist. Now I'm so worried this is going to make me have another m/c. Has anyone had this? Does anyone know what it does when you're pregnant? I'm so scared right now. I wish things were easy.

I think that's a good number for 5w, but don't have the scale handy. It sounds good, though.

I know nothing about thyroids, but it sounds like your doc is on top of it. Let us know how things go with the endocrinologist.

There's a link to a scale at the top of the page. But you can also just click here It says for 5 weeks you can have anything between 18 to 7,340 mIU/mL. So your number is great!

As for the thyroid: It only really matters if it is affecting your thyroid hormone levels. If your thyroid levels are too low, it could cause a miscarriage. HOWEVER, it seems like your doctor is on top of it, and if your thyroid levels are low, taking meds for it help. (They're not harmful, because basically it's a suppliment of the thyroid hormone. So it just makes your thyroid levels stable).

Try not to worry sweets. Hopefully everything will be okay.
