LadyM, terrific problem! Happy for you. I have gotten so good at "taking a dart". Even with those that have some elastic I can usually find an area that allows rather easy sewing. I am aware that for me, some of this may be because garments stretch out over time, and also that I may at times purchase without much belief in the size "down", convinced I'll need the size "up".
Harmony, that TSH range doesn't match the one they give me. On mine, normal range goes from .4 to 3.9 TSH. At 4 TSH it's "mild hypothyroidism" and 2.5 there is a note "at risk". Do check that out yourself, of course. It was a gynecologist who prescribed for me first, but general practitioner agreed with the plan and had wanted me to.
Harmony, if they haven't started doing an A1C test on you they're not worried about high blood sugar. If all they do is the one-time this-morning blood test, you haven't even been noticed. One thing for sure - every morning would be a different number. it bobbles all around. It can change in minutes.
Happy to hear about Kathryn's dd.
