I hear that too. I've had postnatal thyroiditis after each baby-- but it's helped knowing what to expect, how to treat it, and that it's not the same every-single-time. A few times I didn't even have to be medicated: I ate two Brazil nuts a day, and used lemongrass oil on my big toes/throat. My levels came back up in record time, without meds. I'm still in shock. I also did placenta encapsulation this last time, expecting nothing to happen. Oh my. No post-partum blues or anxiety of any kind, my hormones leveled out super fast, I healed so much faster, and my milk supply was the best ever! PS: I tore with #1 and #8, but nobody else... And they weren't even my biggest babies. Weird, right? So just because you tore once, doesn't mean you will again. I'm praying for you!
Awe, gal. I'm so sorry you guys don't get to hop on the TTC wagon right away. But your reasons are logical and understandable. I'm praying for your thyroid hun, and praying God blesses your family! Big, giant hugs!
