So I went to get my thyroid checked out yesterday...pretty uneventful. My TSH is high so I have hypothyroidism and will take synthroid to get it back in check.
What is troubling is that the endocrinologist called and said my "liver is high". What does that mean? Was it smoking weed or something? She said she called my OB's office and they want to see me tomorrow. Why the big rush? What could it be? I'm more worried with this because of the urgency that they seem to have regarding it. She said "they want to see you tomorrow to find out why your liver is high". Luckily (ha!) I'm overweight and lots of times people with extra weight have "fatty livers" as indicated by high levels. Hopefully that's all it is...not that I want that or anything but it's better than the diseases that I saw when I googled which I will NOT do again. One of the diseases said that the only treatment is immediate delivery of the baby. Um...that's not happening. I'm sure I don't have that. I pray I don't at least.
OK, relax. Be calm. We'll figure it out. My body is going through changes and I'm bound to have some bumps in the road.
I go back to my original petition of the universe which is that when people like me have to go through hell in order to get pregnant, we should be blessed with healthy, uneventful pregnancies every time.
On the bright side, maybe they'll have to do an ultrasound and I'll get to see the baby. But that concerns me too because if they have to do an ultrasound, that would mean they're worried about the baby. Let me have some disease, but please let the baby be alright.
Tune in tomorrow for an update...
(Incidentally, I've been feeling REALLY pregnant over the past few days...just thought I'd follow up from my last post)
