I got my TSH results- 1.64. So that's great. They're going to keep me on my current dose of medication to keep that in check.
We still haven't gotten our insurance cards, so I had to pay for the test and the medication out of pocket, then petition for reimbursement. Which is really dumb because I bet they're going to spend more on paper work and manpower reimbursing us than the stuff is worth- the test was $15, and the medication is going to be $13. Which means they're supposed to cover $18 worth of that. I could let it go and save myself the effort, but $18 is $18 that I shouldn't have to pay... so you bet I'm filling out the paperwork. They wouldn't give us the group/policy ID over the phone, they said we had to wait for the card... so that's that.
I might still be bit bitter about the insurance change.
I ordered some OPKs and they should be here today, I guess I'll start those over the weekend. My temps are still rocking steady, so they seem pretty reliable so far.
Thanks for all the comments on the previous posts. The weight gain could be partly due to the hormonal stuff, that is a great point. I think that a significant amount of the weight and bloating are probably due to my bad eating habits and relapse into caffeinated beverages (full of calories and migraines, ugh) but I'm sure the hormonal aspect hasn't helped anything either! Hopefully as my body sorts itself out and I get back on track (and away from soda) we'll be good. This morning the scale said that I've regained 2-3lbs instead of 3-5lbs, so hopefully that's progress. I did eat greasy pizza last night, skipped my jog too, due to yet another nasty migraine... sooo I'm sure that ummm, yeah. I'm planning on doing my jog tonight, so I'm not skipping it completely... just postponing. I still feel like a slacker though.
Anyway, I need to just say no to caffeine- and soda in particular. I'm pretty sure it's the cause of my migraines. I felt a million times better when I was off it completely. I wasn't have sugar/energy crashes, anxiety, and feeling like I was hit by a car. I don't feel as bloated and gassy when I'm off carbonated beverages either. They sabotage my calories. And since we're TTC, that's all the more reason to say no.
Honestly, I found it harder to quit caffeinated beverages than I did to quit cigarettes. Probably because they're so readily available, it seems so innocent, I mean it's just soda. What's the big deal, right? Well, for my body it is a big deal and I need to start listening to my body more. Even if it's just once a week, it leaves me feeling like total crap... and that should be all the sign I need.
