At around 8pm last night my phone rings. Who is it you ask? My endocrinologist?! Yep. He was calling because I left a message at his office the other day that I needed to put off the RAI until after our baby is born. He called me to congratulate me! How sweet is that?! Seriously, in today’s world, what doctor will call you themselves at home, and after hours? I was amazed. This man is clearly a keeper! He even cracked a joke saying, “you and your husband just can’t keep your hands off eachother!” He told me he would like to increase my synthroid dose from 75mcg to 100mcg because of the pregnancy. He was going to increase it anyways to 88mcg, but wanted to go higher now that I’m pregnant. He told me to go for blood work 8 weeks after I start taking the new dose. Again, he reassured me that this pregnancy is 100% pefectly safe for me and that putting off the RAI is no big deal at all. So yes, I am bragging about my endo. Seriously, everyone needs a doctor like him.
It only took me 20 minutes to straighten my hair, as opposed to the one hour plus it used to take. Yay for the Chi!
As for any new pregnancy news…nothing too exciting going on there. I originally had some slight cramping, but that has slowed down a lot. I am a peeing machine, but that’s to be expected. No morning sickness…yet, but it’s still early on in the game! We are not planning on telling anyone the news until Easter weekend. I will be almost 7 weeks then and just a little closer to being “out of the woods.” Thank you for all of your well-wishes, they are greatly appreciated by Jared and me both. We are very hopeful for this little miracle!! I am planning on peeing on another test this weekend. I want that line to be super dark!
