Sorry to hear about your issues, I find it so difficult dealing with some of these endo's as they are always saying different things. Before I was pregnant I was told I had partial pituitary failure but then when I got pregnant I was told I was fine as if I had a serious problem I would not have conceived :eek: I also find it hard to get someone who is speacialised in pit issues, in Dubai the endos are mainly experts in diabetes and limited in everything else!!!!.

Have you had you FSH, LH and growth hormone checked? Normally if you have a few of the pit hormones out of sync it is indicative of a problem (even if they are only slightly abnormal) if your prolactin and TSH are coming back with abnormal readings your endo really should look in to it properly. My mum has pit problems relating to her TSH, prolactin and growth hormone, sometimes her resultas are "normal" other times they are completly all over the place, sometimes a pit tumour can cause fluctuations.

Take care,

I'm managing ok right now. I still am feeling much, much better than I did between my first and second pregnancies. I'm thinking it has a lot to do with the fact that the thyroid problem is being treated. But, I do still have some issues going on - but I can manage at the moment, but with two little children, I am hoping to get more of my energy back too. I'm seeing a well known expert with pituitary issues at the end of this month. I'm flying across the country to do so. I'm hoping he can either help me or rule this out for me (perhaps its something else - or perhaps I really just am tired from being a mom - but I don't think so because of other issues going on at the same time).

I'm so sorry that you're having such a hard time. But, I'm glad to hear that you are somehow managing and have just 10 more days to go. I've never had a c-section, so I can't comment, but I can understand how that would be a bit worrisome. My sister in law has had two and it seemed like she recovered very well from them. But she also didn't have adrenal problems. It's really good that they know they need to give you the cortisol.

As for the blood they know why they are going so high? I would imagine that the low crashes might have something to do with the adrenal problem. But, what about the highs? Did they start with the cortisone shots? I've heard those can bring blood sugar up a bit but 300 sounds kind of high.

I'll be thinking of you and wishing the best. After you've had the baby and you feel up to it, please consider posting back here about how you are, so I know you and your little one are ok.
