Thyroid (non) Update

Well I got a call from BabyDoc's office yesterday at 5:30. They had my blood results in...but apparently there was a lab mix up and they ran the wrong test. Right. They reran the basic Thyroid test which came back just a little worse than the first one from over a week ago, but they didn't run the T3 and T4...which were the test I went in for. They said they could add it on, but because it is so late, they can't do it until we don't get results until tomorrow.

I asked if I my levels are at a point that I should be concerned about miscarriage and she told me that a Thyroid condition is totally treatable with medication and once I get on that there will be no need to worry at all. BUT I AM NOT ON MEDICATION. I know that everything could be fine and I shouldn't panic, but it is just so frustrating!

Besides that my entire work world just turned upside down and I am in complete shock. This has been a rough week. Thank you all so much for the comments and prayers! They mean so much to me. I will hopefully have a real Thyroid update tomorrow!


  1. Hang in there, Sarah. You know we are all rooting for you.

  2. Hi Sarah! I don't know how I came to your blog, but I love your updates! I wanted to let you know that I have a thyroid condition, and I take meds for it every day. Within a week after being on it, I felt like a new person. I'm not pregnant, but I'm trying, and my doctor is paying close attention to my levels for when I do get pregnant. You'll be fine!! Just hang in there. Your stress is probably worse for you right now!!
