Still draggin'

Although my OB upped my thyroid meds two weeks ago, I've been feeling still more tired and despite diet/exercise/breastfeeding, have gained three pounds:-( My TSH tested yesterday resulted at 26.0, worse than before the upped meds. My OB gave me a referral, so I'm off to the endocrinologist next Thursday for some answers. I wish we didn't have to sacrifice so much of our paycheck for medical insurance but I'm glad we have it. The kids are healthy and strong and I'm thankful every day for that:-)

Gaining weight is so frustrating to say the least!!

I hope they can help you with your thyroid.

Girl, you look good! Your weight gain is not noticeable. But, I am having a hard time losing the baby weight too but it's not thyroid - it's the cheese danishes I ate for two weeks and the lack of walking during that same week! Sigh. Maybe if I feed Cole every 2 hours 'round the clock and give up dairy again. NOT.

My dad would say 'Chin up, face into the wind.' I will say, hang in there. The docs will help get you to where you need to be- just keep doing what your doing! ~Hugs~
