I hope your doctor also explained some of the other 100 things that it could be as well. Your carrying 3 babies, therefore your body needs to a larger blood supply to support all 4 of you. Has you doctor done any testing on your thyroid? If it does happen to be Graves disease, then it can be easily treated with mediaction or surgery. And some people who took medication for a couple years, found the disease to go into remission. I wish you and all your babies the best! Keep me updated.

Graves disease can be very serious. My sister had it she had to have radiation treatments to destroy her thyroid. She now is on heart medication because it damaged her heart. It is serious when pregnant too. She had a singleton pregnancy and had lots of problems. I hope it isn't graves disease. The way she found out was her eyes started to bulge out and just didn't look normal. The Dr. confirmed it was Graves Disease. Good Luck and I hope you have a happy healthy 9 months!
