I just got back from my appt with my thyroid doc. I am actually doing really well. I thought I was because I have been feeling quite a bit better lately. I am so happy I switched to the natural thyroid Here are my results
TSH 2.54 (0.3-3.0)
FT4 0.8 (0.8-1.8)
FT3 2.8 (2.3-4.2)

I was a bit surprised because I didnt change anything since July and my TSH went from 0.12 to 2.54. The other numbers were similar at both tests. Not really sure about that but the 2.54 seems good for me. And my doc said everything looks good for me to start TTC. now i just need to convince DH

I actually think you should up your meds. The free's should be on the high end of normal and they are barely within normal range. Just my opinion. YAY that you can start TTC!!!!! GL!!

Im not sure, it seems like i feel better when my frees are lower so we are treating more by symptoms than by labs right now. Ive been going back and forth on the labs for a long time and they never seem to stay right where they "should be" but when they were higher, I felt worse and now I feel better.
