Got the tsh back and according to their lab it's 28.2
I almost lost it right then and there at work out of frustration. The nurse thinks it might be a lab error so she wants me to retest tomorrow at a different lab to double check it.

I can't believe it went from .26 to 28.2 in 1 month while on meds. I could see it getting high but for it to get that high I'd almost have to be on no meds at all.

I'm trying to hold onto hope that it is lab error but right now I just want to say FUIF and break something. I'm so tired of this crap and I just want to be able to cycle already.

Part of it was I really felt great about the timing, I'd be due in early May before it got ridiculously hot. My mom would only be able to come for a few days for the birth and then have to go back to work until June which would give me time to adjust w/o her breathing down my neck.

I'm trying not to cry out of frustration right now. I'm so sick of having to plan our lives around IF and I hate being stuck at my job b/c I need time off for IF treatments and don't want to waste time building up time at a new job first. Not to mention needing the money.

Basically I'm sad, angry and frustrated. I'll update tomorrow.

SURELY, that is a lab error. Praying it is and after tomorrow, your mind will be at ease!

WTF!!! That can't be right! You would have been like a slug with levels that high! It has to be an error. Sending you all my prayers that tomorrow's results are better!

That just seems like it's got to be an error...that's crazy high and you would have to feel like complete poo if your TSH was really that high. Hoping and praying it's an error!!!

Good sweet Lord, that's nuts! Here's hoping it's an error, but sucks that you have to retest. More blood drawn, more waiting = not cool.

Hang in there.
