Not medically cleared to TTC ... *cries* (xposted in ttc #1)
 
Dr office just called.. they're fast.

TSH = 11

It needs to be no higher than 5 for him to recommend ttc.. ideally under 3. Upping the meds, repeat blooddraw in 8 weeks just like last time.

We CAN ttc.. he just can't recommend it at this point.



I told him when I saw him I had been on 100mcg of synthyroid for years to keep me at 4, sometimes as much as 125mcg. He put me on 50mcg saying it'd be enough.

Well obviously it's not. And he's only bumping it to 75mcg... so likely in 8 weeks it'll be adjusted up again.


I guess it's good DH will likely be gone my next 2 cycles.. guess I'll stop planning my July 4th trip to see him (I'll be Oing).

*hugs* Why would he give you less than you had been taking? :(

*hugs* I'm sorry Ashley. Can you insist on a blood draw in 4 weeks instead of 8 to see how your levels are?

Hi ash, I have been newly diagnosed with hypothyroid and my RE checks labs every week! Also, are you taking synthroid or generic? My re said is does make a difference. And, are you taking it on a totally empty stomach then not putting anything else in your stomach for another hour? Apparently absorption of the drug is highly affected with food/drink/other supplements.

Good luck. Pls keep us posted!

I swore I replied...I am so mad at your doctor. I wish that he would just listen. I also get my thyroid checked every 4 weeks. I don't understand the 8 week wait. That is ridiculous. I hope that your levels get sorted out quickly and you get to TTC soon.

Because he's an idiot?

We might be taking Reme to the zoo in a month.. if we do, I'll book an appointment in Milwaukee and get it done myself. Cheaper... $100 here, $50 there.

Levothyroxine. Synthyroid is rather expensive I'm told (the pharmacist told me likely 3x the price).

It's possibly done because this is all out of pocket. But I've never had Labs done even 8 weeks apart.. it's always been 12 or more. Once it's stable, I can pretty much tell you when I need labs done rather easily, because I'll have symptoms start to come back (fat neck comes first, then sleepiness). I've gone as long as 12 months between draws on more than one occasion and had the numbers be the same with no returned symptoms. I spent 4 of the 13 years on the exact same dose with no adjustment all. 100mcg...


DH isn't even here. He has at least another month down there.. that takes us through my next 2 O's. Next blood draw is about the same time as my O after that. We are waiting on word of a new job for him.. which would keep him away for 4-6m, but I'd be going down there. And we'd have insurance, good insurance. The OB is really annoyed we are uninsured... but I haven't told him I don't plan on using his services unless I have to once I'm pregnant anyway...

Thanks for the update. I'm sorry you're on hold. Hang in there, your rainbow is on it's way.

I am so sorry that things are dragging out for you. I hope you can get everything squared away soon.

Well I'm ignoring him and we will likely TTC in July. Dh got a job that's much closer to home, so We will try and give it a go for July and see what happens.

Yup, 100% on for July. I may have to make two trips down to make it happen, and will fret and panic over the missed TTC days.. but it's game on.

I'll be buying stevia tomorrow and making sweet tea out of the fertilitea. Opks and as much nookie as I can squeeze in. I'm spotting now, which means AF should be here today, tomorrow or friday (she has a mind of her own).

But bring it on baby. I want to bring home a March baby dang it (with a real possibility of it being born in April LOL).
