I was wondering if you could give me some advice on what steps to take to try to have a healthy pregnancy. I have had hypothyroidism since 2003. I have no symptoms that I know of and am a slim person, so I don't fit the typical characteristics. I was on Levoxyl for 9 years and didn't really notice any changes in how I felt.
Fast forward to 2010, we conceived after about a year of trying but at my 9 week appointment in July there was an empty 5 week sac. I also never "felt" pregnant. In September 2011 we decided to try to get pregnant again and conceived in 1 month. This time I felt sick and pregnant until about the 8th week, then at my 9 week appointment there was another empty 5 week sac. I did not have a D&C for either of the miscarriages.
In December 2011 I went to a chiropractor for nutrition response testing and found out I have a sensitivity to wheat and corn. I immediately stopped eating those foods. I also went to see a new dr for my thyroid and he put me on compounded T3 & T4. I do feel like I have a bit more energy now but nothing dramatic. I have included my most recent test results for blood, saliva, and stool.
My thyroid medication dose is still being worked out. I also take the following supplements: Vitamin D drops, fish oil, Isotonix prenatal, Butyric-Cal-mag, Methyl-Plex B, Mineral Plex, Hemeplex Fe, and Pan-Rx.
I have recently started going for acupuncture and feel like I am a bit more calm. My periods usually start with a day or 2 of spotting, 2 or 3 days of bright red flow with a few small clots and mild cramps, then about 3 days of light spotting that is brown. I have also noticed that I ovulate around days 9/10/11 but have the fertile egg white mucus around days 16-19. I have a cycle that's usually 28-30 days long.
I have also gone for several abdominal massages, but haven't really noticed any changes in my cycle. I recently had an ultra sound on day 26 of my cycle and I had follicles on both ovaries and I have a tilted uterus.
My diet is mostly animal protein, veggies, fruit, and nuts. I originally thought that the miscarriages were caused by my thyroid not being controlled with the Levoxyl, but now it is apparent that I also have some hormone issues. Do you think that this can be helped with acupuncture alone, or would I need herbs and supplements? I'm currently 32 yrs old and feel like time is ticking and I'm not sure how to resolve these issues in a natural way. I'd like to move onto the next chapter in my life but feel confused on the next steps. Thank you in advance for any advice you can give.
