I’m getting scared again.
I know that if Silas has CP or not, we’re going to love and enjoy him. But I’m getting scared of it. I can’t find any blogs where moms have caused their children’s cerebral palsy from hypothyroidism. I’m especially scared because my tsh was 121 at 7 weeks – when the baby needs my hormones the most!
All I can find are people who’ve had miscarriages. I wanna know about women with surviving babies with developmental issues.
Something has been kicking my ass lately – especially in the mornings.
I’m not quite sure which it is, but it could be one of three things: Hashimoto’s AT, levothyroxine (the med for the first), or the baby. It’s very possible to be all, one, or two of these reasons.
I’m 30 weeks today. I’m supposed to gain a pound a week for the next ten weeks. Let me just say, I’d better not. Lol! I’ve come this far with a weight gain of -9 pounds. I don’t want to see that go out the window. I started at 182. I’d like to be at 150-160 after baby. But being so lazy and craving sugar (mainly chocolate anything) is making me think this isn’t going to happen.
I’m not going to prevent it purposefully, but I really hope it doesn’t happen.
I love Carter’s cry. It’s like “muh muh!!” Like he’s calling for me to come rescue him.
Y’all gotta try this stuff! It’s sold in Target. You can go to noosayoghurt.com to find a store that stocks this stuff.
It’s $2.40 for 8 oz, BUT it is the most amazing yogurt I’ve ever had in my 24 years of existence. It’s the perfect blend between regular and Greek yogurt with fruit. Oh my God. It’s heaven!
I could gauge by weekly gestation…
…I could tell by the horrible burning in my throat from stomach acid. Ugh. This is going to be a long 3 months…
I’ve noticed since I’ve been on my Levothyroxine regularly that working out doesn’t hurt as much. It’s a completely different physical pain. It’s easier.
This went pretty good. It was on 2/5. Apparently, I’m getting old and I’m needing a belly band. It’s weird how your second pregnancy is sometimes so different than the first, but I also had a weird start.
Anywho- I’m still at 170 pounds and I was 26 weeks then. He measures perfectly. I’m not having any problems other than the heart palpitations – which they always say are fine, but they’re paired with decreased lung function and abdominal tightness. It makes me nervous because I had these with Carter. I think I’m going to get checked out next time. All of this is so weird. I’ve been eating for my Hashimoto’s/hypothyroidism and my blood pressure has gone down instead of up! 75% of my diet is dairy. It’s odd.
As for my endocrine system, my TSH was 0.87. Still perfect, but it went up since I had it tested last (by 0.01). I don’t know if this is the point in my pregnancy where it will start to get worse or if the damage tiny thyroid is so great that I probably won’t get any lower than what I have now. I guess we’ll see at my next appointment.
My sugars have been fantastic. Just one or two high readings. I eat a piece of celery to get them down. My a1c was high. I’m thinking it’s from before I changed my diet. So, I’m trying to watch them and stay away from the grain carbs with added sugar. No cereal for this girl without plenty of protein paired with it – and it has to be gluten free, of course.
I’m so excited to get to go back. I’ll start my every other week appointments next month because I started my third trimester this week. I’m really excited for the next ultrasound. I’m ready to see this little one’s face. I hope he takes after his dad and is just as handsome as his big brother!
