Not Actively TTC Yet, But I Need Help on Eating & Possible Thyroid Issue
I am not actively trying for a baby yet, but since I've read that thyroid problems can deter conception, I'm kind of worried. But my periods are very normal and on a 28 day cycle.
I plan (and hope) of conceiving in the next 2 - 3 years. Lately, it was brought to my attention to check my thyroid.
I have these sensations maybe 2 or 3 times a year. My joints hurt for seconds at a time then go away. I have a hot/cold sensation down my leg (thighs to toes) 2 or 3 times a year and close to the day before my period starts, which made me think it might be just a lack of nutrients, since I often feel it days before my period and it goes away after a couple days. Days before my period I feel fatigued, but no heavy periods, actually by day four it's almost gone.
I take a multivitamin too. I also take folic acid every few days.
I was anemic from age 14, i'm thirty now. But I do not have any physical health issues like dizziness or other pain.
I am trying to keep my body as healthy as possible to get pregnant as soon as I can, but I don't know when yet. Could you give me some advice as to how to keep healthy, what to eat, if I do have thyroid issues, and how I could keep a healthy body for quick conception and afull-term baby? Until I have it all checked out. Thank you.
