Sorry for the double post, I posted in third thrimester section by mistake. Its sound like some Japanese food snack, lol Seriously though, does anyone? I do. Its an auto immune disease and 1 in 100 women will develop it after birth. After giving birth to my first daughter I developed antibodies that attacked my thyroid gland. I dont have the antibodies anymore but my thyroid doesnt work as it did before. I have to take 100 micrograms of thyroxine each day. My doc said I should get regular checks because sometimes in pregnancy your thyroid can go balistic. Luckily mines fine right now. Just for interest, the symptoms are, dry skin and hair, hair loss, constipation, feeling tired and lethargic, weight gain. They are the main ones.I developed a goiter because of it, that looked stunning, NOT. Anyway once I started the meds it went down. PHEW Anyone else got a low thyroid?
