    Pregnant with hypothyroidism

    Ok, it appears from the FRER hpt I took this morning at 12DPO that I am pregnant. I'm scared to death though because in mid-June I was diagnosed w/ hypothyroidism. My TSH levels weren't through roof or anything but higher than the average. I had them start me on .50 (instead of .25 so they could go up or down) of the meds and I won't be able to get another blood test until mid-August. My cycles were back on track shortly after taking the meds which prior to that AF was starting very early.

    Has anyone found out after they were pregnant that they had hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and did you have any pregnancy problems or issues w/ DC. I understand that your thyroid being off can cause m/c, brain development issues and others.

    Congrats on your pregnancy! I had weird thyroid issues with my last pregnancy (ended up having a nodule and having 1/2 my thyroid removed after the baby was born) and my baby is totally fine. 15 months old now and smart as a whip.

    I have a friend who has low thyroid function (is that Hypo or hyper? I get them mixed up) and she is on meds. Synthroid I think? She has 3 smart, healthy kids.

    The worst condition of abnormal thyroid hormones is euthyroid which is an auto immune (I think) but usually hypothyroidism is not an issue they should keep increasing ur dosage in early pregnancy and then u will be just fine , happy and healthy 9 months

    Thanks everyone, I wish I knew that these things could happen while ttc and not having your thyroid levels correct. I would much rather be jumping for joy right now. I just pray for a healthy baby. I know that if you have hypothyroidism and your levels are actively controlled my meds then it's fine, my issue is if my levels aren't fine and I'm pregnant. I know there is nothing I can do about it except pray and give thanks, just scary.

    If I understood well you are already on meds? No need to worry then huni, your condition is under control they might just adjust your medication dosage

    From my understanding as long as you are under medication, it is just fine (and it's very likely that early in pg it wouldn't matter even if you hadn't been on the meds at that time, because the baby needs very little from you at first.)

    Wishing you all the very best for a H and H 9 months and peace of mind. (((hugs)))

    I have been on .50mcg of the meds for 5 weeks this Thursday. I was on it a little over a week then before getting pregnant. It is supposed to take 6-8 weeks to start working and being able to take another blood test. I sure hope that everything is OK and will just have to wait it out I guess.

    Thanks Atomic, I know that the 1st trimester is the most important since after that, the babies have their own thyroid. However, I don't know w/ only being >a month along how important it is. I just pray I'm on the right dosage and have been on long enough for it to be OK. I go in this week for a early thyroid test and blood pregnancy test ordered by my OB but haven't heard back from my GP yet. I informed them both of my + hpt over email. It would be so nice if the pregnancy c/b a bit more worry free. I would've held off ttc if they would've told me the risks. Just stinks and i was hoping to hear some + stories to ease my mind a bit. We'll keep prayingl Thanks so much!
