I had my TSH/free t4 checked Friday and the results came back today and it's not good news. My TSH is .22, normal is between 1 & 2. So I start a new level of meds tomorrow to get the numbers back up but it'll be 4-6 weeks.

We have to postpone our cycle until at least July and that's if my TSH doesn't go too high and have to be adjusted again. I was so looking forward to cycling next month.

I know July isn't that far but it just seems like it right now. I know waiting is for the best but it's still really dissapointing.

I'm just glad I listened to my instincts and had it tested. I've been hypothyroid for years and the past few weeks I've had symptoms that indicated my meds were off so I called and got the nurse to order the test. I'm also wondering if maybe it was really low when we cycled b/c that can cause implantation failure. It wasn't checked right around the cycle so we'll never know but I do wonder.

I just wish it could be easier for us.

That's my update.

I'm sorry to hear that your TSH is wonky, but glad that you followed your instincts. It totally sucks having to wait and postpone your cycle, but it's definitely for the best. Good luck during your wait!

I'm sorry, sweetie. But as you said, better safe than sorry. July will be here before you know it!

That sucks that your tsh is off... I'm glad you followed your instinct though and had it checked. July will be here in a blink of an eye. And you'll feel much better about your chances with not having to worry about your levels!
