Yesterday’s endo appointment went well… I guess. There wasn’t much that was discussed or changed becuase, though my numbers on my graph were everywhere, my main concentration seemed to be floating “in the zone”, which is great. We are waiting on my A1c result to come back from the lab, as well as the TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) result. When they drew the blood, I got my own sample and used my last A1c Self-check test to see what it said for comparison purposes.
Usually I would get upset, but seeing as how I’m working on bringing it down from the last result of 9.0, I’ll take it gladly. And I’m proud of it. Why? Because I’ve been able to do it without a ton of lows. For me, that’s a huge step. HUGE.
We started talking about aÂ fewÂ other things though. I’m not back to “normal” after having Kip. He’ll be a year old next month, and I’ve only had 2 periods. My emotions and anxiety are worse than when I was first pregnant with him, and seem to be getting worse over time. He ordered two more tests – progesterone and FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) to see if we can diagnose something there. If those come back normal, I’m assuming we can attribute it to stress and still recovering from having him.
I just want to know what’s going on. If it’s stress, okay, that’s fine, I’ll find out what I can do to fix it. If it’s medically, I want to know what steps I need to take there. I just want an answer to this mystery. I want to go back to feeling like me again.
Labwork came back. A1c is7.9, so that’s still okay. I’m on the right track.
Other stuff looks good too, so we can just attribute everything to my body still readjusting as well as stress factors. Yay.
