A few months ago when I went to the doctor after blood tests, he said, "I'll be honest with you. I really didn't think you had a thyroid problem."
He went on to explain that his typical hypothyroid patients are a little overweight (thyroid controls metabolism) with flaky skin and other symptoms which I did not seem to have. Yet, I tested hypothyroid.
So he put me on some Synthroid and I've been taking the same dose ever since.
The dizziness stopped - until I got pregnant. The hair stopped falling out - maybe because I got pregnant. My energy returned! - until ... well, you get the picture.
So far, my experience with pregnancy is this: fatigue, a little night sickness, and do not even think about getting hungry. When I start feeling hungry I MUST. EAT. NOW. or I will get sick. And then I don't want to eat, but I have to. Then, when I do eat, I feel even sicker. It's vicious, I tell you.
Add the Synthroid which has also increased my metabolism, and watch my grocery bill skyrocket. I feel like I eat all day, every day, and you know what? I weigh less than I did even in high school. I am 5'8" and weighing in quite below 135 lbs.
(But I honestly don't know where it's coming from. This little pooch is growing every day.)
Anyway, I'm not complaining because again, I'm not throwing up anything that I'm eating. I just eat and sleep and play with Liam and lose weight. And not exercise. Wouldn't want to make things worse, you know?
