I would add to Nancy's comment about thyroid and temperature, that the time of month to check it is the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th day of menstruation. If the average basal temperature is belore 97.8, the thyroid may need a gentle nudge (iodine).


The first thing you want to check is your thyroid. You need a healthy thyroid to carry a pregnancy,+ a lot of iodine. Unfortunately, docs have forgotten about this important "detail". To make matters worse, today's thyroid's test ranges are too broad, thus, many times people with hypothyroidism go undetected. Your TSH should be around 2. But even better than a blood test, you should just check your temperature in the morning: it should be 97.8-98.2, lower than that= hypothyroidism.
