Ladies make sure your doctors are checking EVERYTHING with your bloodwork! I found some shit out on my own that my doctors did not find. STAY TUNED & read………Ok so I found out early at 11 weeks that I have gestational diabetes. Wasn’t diabetic before baby but cool we’re working to get tht under control.
Butttt let me tell you this, the other day I get on Google & it said something about how some ppl with gestational diabetes might have thyroid issues too. So I decided to check my blood work. Turns out my doctors never even ran a TSH OR T4 test to check for thyroid issues. Why did I give y’all asses 8-9 tubes of blood for if u ain’t checking for EVERYTHING? 🙄
So I call them yesterday and requested to have my thyroid checked. They eventually sent it electronically, I go get the bloodwork, results came in today….tell me why my shit is flagged and hinting at hypothyroidism.
So all this time I could’ve had thyroid issues and y’all asses didn’t think to check that too? Y’all suppose to be the doctors. Then child…I get my crazy ass back on Google to see how hypothyroidism could affect pregnancy… & lorddddd so many bad things are listed 😩😩😩 wtf. And I actually like my doctor’s office. They’re supposed to be the best in town but it took a NON DOCTOR (myself) to figure some shít it. I have a love hate relationship with Google. It stresses me tf out but it also helped me find out that I have a thyroid issue too (which I didn’t have prior to this baby). I need weekly appointments now!!!! I know God will cover this baby, so I’m trusting him. But mannnn I feel some type of way.
Moral of the story:
make sure ur bloodwork checks your thyroid (TSH & T4) & all the other shit. Apparently there are major issues that can come from it. Including infertility, miscarriage, preterm labor, placenta abruption, brain disorder etc.
If anybody has or had thyroid issues share how your pregnancy is going..etc. Anybody is free to comment. With or without issues, I just wanna talk 😩
December!! Why aren’t you here yet!! 😤
