thyroid issue?


Hey girls,

I had my bloodwork done a few days ago, and I got a call saying my thyroid was at the low end of normal. She told me if I wasn't pregnant it would be fine but cause I am they want me to do more blood work to re test my levels, and if its the same to go on meds during the pregnancy. Is this an issue? She didn't sound concerned .... But of course I'm worried.

Thanks

My sister had this, it just meant an extra pill to take everyday.

her little girl is now just shy of a year.

Yes there are lots of us hyper and hypo ladies out there. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in my first pregnancy. I take medicine and get blood work done every four weeks. I had a very healthy baby in my first pregnancy and this baby is looking good now too!
I did get very symptamatic after having my son which was pretty awful but nothing medicine couldn't fix.
Don't research online because it will only cause worries...I learned that the hard way in my first pregnancy. Just ask questions to your dr. And it's great your numbers aren't so bad!! Hopefully just your body's reaction to hcg and will go away after pregnancy.
Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Synthroid is usually what they prescribe you for a sluggish thyroid, and is safe to take during pregnancy. There is new evidence out there that your TSH level should be less than 2.5 (some like it even way lower) and that hypothyroid can be linked to miscarriage and certain cognitive deficits with the baby.

I currently take 125mcg pill every day when I wake up. Just be sure to take it an hour before food or 2-3 hours after eating.
