My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 15 months. I went to a new gyno last week for my annual and she was concerned about my thyroid. She sent me for a thyroid ultrasound later in the week. Over the weekend we did a test and found out we were pregnant.
I finally got in touch with my doctor's office today - The nurse tells me that the results of my ultrasound show that I have an enlarged thyroid, and it's overactive. She is having an endocrinologist call me to schedule an appointment when they can fit me in.
I scheduled my first appointment with my ob on 1/15/12 as that's the earliest they can get me in. Which would mean I would be about 11 weeks in when they first see me.
I have to admit, I am pretty scared. Has anyone else had experiences with thyroid issues (I know that they've been responsible for 2 of my SIL's miscarriages)?
Does 11 weeks seem really long for the first appointment?
