aw daisychain, sweetie, I didn't mean to make it sound so bad. It just took me a while to get normal because my endo was so conservative with her dosing and my TSH was so high (10 before I was put on medication). Plus, I wasn't TTC anyway. And, I don't find that trying to find the right dose particularly debilitating. Having too high of a dose can cause anxiety, heart palpitations and weight loss, which could be quite terrible I suppose, but I wouldn't worry too much about that right now.
Your levels seem to be just barely hypothyroid (at least with my lab), I bet that your levels will go back to normal very quickly (probably within a few months)! When is your follow up? 3 months or 6 months? I bet by that point, you will be good to go! I know it seems like an eternity, but it's not - it gives you time to figure out your platelets issue and any other issues you might have, and still gives you 6-9 months before you have to start traveling.
But in saying all this, I can understand why you are sad and disappointed and discouraged. I am thinking of you/ praying for you! xo

@alzora, The first time around, I didn't take a pregnancy test because I didn't feel pregnant... just tired and a bit crampy -like I do before AF. But low and behold... there was a baby! So, if you've never been pregnant before, you may not feel any different than usual, though if you know your body REALLY well, maybe you can tell.
An encouraging true story: My friends & neighbours married one another when they were quite young -barely finished university. They tried to conceive a baby for years (I want to say 10 years, but I'm not sure that's accurate). Finally, they quit trying to "fix" their fertility and decided to adopt. They went through the international adoption process and were given a baby boy from Korea. 2 years later, they adopted a 2nd baby boy, also from Korea. 2 years or so later, she got pregnant and had a 3rd baby boy, followed by a baby girl 2 years later. They now have a lovely family with 4 little children. If you ask her now, she will tell you that she feels that she had to go through the years of infertility and struggle because those 2 Korean boys were meant to be a part of their family. They would not have adopted had they conceived right away, and even if they had, it wouldn't have been those 2 specific boys. So, God's timing was not what they preferred, but it did result in a beautiful family. So, for all of us, the struggle is difficult, but I have to trust that there is a reason for all our struggles and time spent waiting even if we never see the reason here on earth.Mommy to John Alexander & 3 furbabies; Maggie the dog, Rex & Bella the wannabe lions

@daisychain it really wont be years to get the medication sorted and 35 is not old at all, you were able to conceive just a month ago, a couple of extra months will not make that much difference for your chances to conceive again. I hope you feel better soon!
@whitegold, hope you feel better soon too! BC gives so many side effects you only notice after you stop taking it, but it wont be long till you get it all out of your system. (I decided I'm never going back on BC, I feel so much better without it)
@alzora, hmh that doesn't sound good two week wait buddy, but if adoption has always been your dream, what everyone else might or might not think is really just minor. I can see how you would want a biological to experience to the adoption... but is there any reason you can't take both routes (I can imagine financially and emotionally it can be a burden)
