So, in the interest of documenting and remembering, I think I’ll fill in the blanks that I seemed to have missed this past year.

Pregnancy was relatively uneventful for me. I was extremely tired throughout, which I think was part normal pregnancy tiredness and part thyroid troubles. At the beginning of my second trimester, my thyroid started working a bit better, and I started getting overactive symptoms (skipping heartbeats, mostly). I worked with my GP, and we decreased my dose, which seemed to help. We checked a month after the decrease, and all was well.

Unfortunately, we didn’t check again until the beginning of my 3rd trimester, when I found out I had gone outside the 1-2 TSH range. I had been feeling utterly exhausted the whole time, which was probably explained as symptoms. We went back to my original dose and things improved a bit.

Cora kept us waiting around until four days past her due date. I was seriously ready to get the show on the road!
