Wonky Thyroid Absolved of Guilt.

Well Doctor N's Office just called and told me that the thyroid would not have caused the miscarriage but the pregnancy likely caused the dip.

I feel better and worse.

If it had been the thyroid, then I would have had something tangible to address the next time we get pregnant so that I could try to prevent another miscarriage.

It's good in that I can stop blaming myself for not picking up on the thyroid signs, addressing it and thereby saving the little baby to be.

So I guess I'm back to Dr. B's hypothesis that this type of miscarriage occur in one in five pregnancies and are usually the body's way of dealing with a pregnancy that is not forming correctly and there is nothing more to be done.
