Wink Great News Here!!! - I am pregnant!!!

I just wanted to update all of you...I found out yesterday that I am pregnant!! I had a total thyroidectomy 2 months ago and wasn't even really trying to get pregnant. I actually thought I was just PMS'ing for 2 weeks and maybe my body was just out of whack from the surgery....I thought for sure that that was why I was so crampy, tired and grumpy. Post surgery, I was feeling pretty good (I had energy, slept well and wasn't grumpy). I thought I was

I was wondering...will I most likely have to see the endo more frequently now to make sure my synthroid levels are correct?

Oh, yes. Keeping your hormones levels right are EXTREMELY important now.
I am sooo happy for you! CONGRATULATIONS!

Yes. Let him know ASAP. Very important that he knows. Your hormones go out of whack just with a pregnancy. But now with your thyroid gone only 2 months, your body is still getting adjusted to that. Keep your endo clued on everything in your pregnancy. He needs to know. Good luck.

Congratulations on the happy news!

By all means, contact the OB and endo ASAP. The baby needs sufficient hormones for proper development even more than you do.

Congratulations that is great!!! You just never know what will happen.

Guess what, so am I!! I just found out 3 weeks ago. the funny thing is I had so many problems, endometriosis, blocked tubes which I had surgery on but was unsure whether they even functioned, and we did one successful IVF 2 years ago. We tried for a while before IVF with no success. We also werent trying and didnt think we would ever get pregnant. It is a big shock. I had my ultrasound last week and to our surprise it wasnt a tubal pregnancy and right where it belonged. I really have to wonder if maybe I was a bit hypo before getting pregnant because now Im on medication maybe everything just seemed to work better. Its a big mystery!

Yes I think my endo will be seeing me every 4-6 weeks now. My TSH was at 4 and he wants me down to 2. I was on .88 mg synthroid, 100 mg. for a week after my appointment with him, than 112 mg. which I am taking until my next appt with him in a few weeks. He did up my medication as fast as was possible.

Congrats to you to Ginger....I did see my endo and my TSH was at 3.8 and he also wants me down so he bumped up my synthroid also. How far along are you? I am about 5-6 weeks now....I am a little nervous because I feel crampy in my stomach and back but I have for a while....I have talked to a lot of friends and some said they felt the same way for a month or so...I guess every pregnancy is different because I never felt like this with my daughter...Again maybe it could be a hormonal thing since I only had my thyroid out 2 months ago....
Anyway..keep me posted Ginger. I would love to hear how you are progressing.

Brookeysma,
Hi,
Yes lets definitely keep in touch. I am a little over 9 weeks now. The cramping is very normal. I had it constantly with my last pregnancy and again with this one. You just have to try to drink lots of water. I go back to my endo in 2 weeks so we will see where my numbers are at.
How often will you be seeing your endo?

I am seeing my ENDO again in early November....I just saw him last week. Thanks for easing my mind about the cramping. It did have me a little nervous. It is so amazing how each pregnancy can be so different. We had tried for 4 months to get pregnant with my daughter and this time it was just two times.....I guess my thyroid being removed must have contributed to that....
