|Please Note That..|
Firstly I would like to apologise for my comments on BF in my last entry. You girls are right, I shouldnt feel that I need to justify my decsions and I think I was just trying to make myself feel better. I made generalisations that weren't fair, and so again I apologise.
So I'm trying to stay positive and not stress out. The last few days I've noticed that my hands have been shaking (fine tremor) and my calves are aching. It got me worrying that my Graves has come back - which is a very scary thought. If you'll remember, its an auto immune disease so it goes away in pregnancy, but, if its come back, then it is effecting the baby just as its effecting me. My Dr asked me to go and have the blood test ASAP and shes put an urgent rush on the results. My resting pulse was high and I realised when she was asking me about any changes that I'm suddenly not tired at bedtime anymore. I'm hot too but put that down to the weather and pregnancy. All of these symptoms were what had me at the Dr's in the first place.
Fingers crossed the tremor is just caused by my anxiety and everything else is just coincidence.
Will have the results in the morning.
My Doctor called me at 8:30 to say that my thuroid function was on the higher end of normal (so an increase) but still in the normal range so we dont need to go to panic stations yet. Plan now is to have a blood test for it every 2 weeks and tomorrow the rest of the blood tests will come back so they may indicate something else.
When I went in yesterday my Dr said it was funny that I should call up as my Psychiatrist had written her a -hand written- letter that she had just recieved. In the letter she outlined her diagnosis and also asked for some blood tests to be run. Made me feel like she (the psychiatrist) actually cared and was working to help me, rather than just listen to me once a fortnight.
So, good news.
