Underactive thyroid and spontaneous labour ?


39+2..
Been having some signs of labour but they seem like just braxton hicks that are getting stronger.
However..
I have been underactive thyroid for years now, currently on 250mg daily and I've been thinking does that effect going into labour spontaneously ?

With my daughter my waters broke 3 days overdue but I did not contract so I was induced.

Has anyone with an under active thyroid had an ontime labour ??

I'm a bit disheartened now after thinking this

With my son, I was also on 250 mg, and I went 41 and never went into labor. I had to be induced. Did have Braxton hicks but nothing more. Never thought there could be a connection-- he was my first, too. Now I'm expecting again, and am taking 175mg, and hoping I have spontaneous labor too.

I have hypothyroidism and went into labor spontaneously with two of my five. I was induced with my third and got induced after my water broke with #1 and #4. 3 of mine came before my due date, and two were 1 day late, so not a big deal... Good luck!!!

Good luck Hun I hope you go into labour spontaneously !
With my first I was induced but my waters had broken on their own, so I done half a job basically haha! I contracted for about 5 hours on and off and then they fizzled out so I was induced which was awful !

When are you due this baby? X

That makes me feel much better!! I had the same with #1, my water broke but I was induced.
I'm due on Tuesday and I'm absolutely dreading induction which is booked for the week later so 41 weeks.
I'm hoping and praying that he comes on his own and my body helps me out! My induction with my first wasn't pleasant so it's put me off.
I take my meds religiously never miss any so my levels are happy right now, and I'm doing everything possible to get him to come.
He's fully engaged but I don't see MW till due date and she is going to do a sweep, I thought why not if it helps great if not never mind x

Taylor, I am due Nov. 26 with a precious baby girl! I have been looking for natural ways to induce labor such as nipple stimulation but I can't do that until at least 37 weeks along. I'm currently 27 wks.

I agree with you on the induction. Hated my induction and am afraid of another one. My water didn't break and so they did it for me, but the pitocin gave me a horrible experience! Praying for an easy labor this time.

Hey
Under active thyroid lady here too. I've just this morning been feeling contractions, must have been Brixton hicks as it's gone now. But both times before I had to be induced. I wasn't diagnosed then though. So I'm also wondering if I'll go natural this time. On 150mcg

Hi Hun!
How are you feeling? It's awful all the guess work isn't it.
Was you induced early with your previous children or overdue?
I've had a sweep , been losing plug and stuff and I think my waters may be slowly leaking which they did with my daughter.
I'm a day overdue now I just want to go natural otherwise I'm booked for induction at 41 weeks so next Tuesday!
