Fit Prego: Some things cannot be controlled.

The latest…the pregnancy and my thyroid just don’t seem to want to get along.  My iron level, however, is doing great!  It’s amazing what you can control with just tweaking your diet and other things are just too far out of common fixes.  I’ve been told to go on iron vitamins and supplements before but I can fix that.  I’ve been told that I was in the danger zone for diabetes and I can fix that too.  My thyroid, however, that’s not something I want to be messing with.  I really wish that I would have been tested in my other pregnancies for the hormone levels associated…I bet they were out of whack then too.  Makes you even wonder how many things slip through the cracks without us noticing.  Mine was simply because I didn’t realize that my mom had thyroid issues too.  I never put it down on the checklist.

PS  Coolest thing now…the shocked look on doctors’ or nutritionists’ faces when I tell them how much I run!  Love the responses!  I know I’m doing the right thing even if it’s not the common thing!
