    Default Thyroid problems:(

    Any other April momma's have hypothyroidism? My levels were WAY off at my first appointment, so my dr majorly upped my medication. It takes about 6 weeks for the medication to really get in your system, so he re checked my levels this week. The nurse called yesterday and said my levels are STILL off, so they upped my medication again. In some ways, I'm lad to know it is off-it makes sense how I gained weight while I was so crazy sick, and it also explains my moodiness and my total exhaustion. All are normal pregnancy symptoms, but I just felt like it was much worse than I remembered it being with my previous pregnancy. So, knowing my thyroid is of, it all makes sense now. That being said tho, it worries me for the baby. The nurse said since I'm being treated for it, baby should be fine. I have several friends who had thyroid issues their whole pregnancies but their babies were perfectly healthy. I'm guessing the baby is getting everything it needs and that's why there's nothing left over for momma. I'm anxious for my sono in a few weeks to see that everything is ok tho!

    Do you take meds for this all the time, or just in pregnancy?

    I have been on meds for hypothroidism for 15 years+ . I have had my dose adjusted a few times over the years, sometimes when pregnant, sometimes when I'm not.
    As long as they are keeping an eye on it I wouldn't worry about it effecting baby.....I have just been told they should keep a closer eye on it when pregnant (instead of the once or twice a year as I usually)

    I've had hypothyroid for over ten years. It was originally discovered after I started breaking out in hives from head to toe-not exaggerating! (It was so bad that the hives would start forming together in huge clumps.) They did countless allergy testing, I saw multiple doctors, and tried numerous things to stop them, but no one could ever could figure out what was wrong. It happened for six months straight until it just stopped one day. I'm convinced it was bc of my thyroid being out of whack and the medication finally getting in my system got it to stop. All that being said-my levels have always been up and down through the years, but never off this drastically. I'm sure the pregnancy has just made it go a little haywire tho. They will re check it again in about a month from now-hoping this dose does the trick. On a completely silly side, at least this dose has a pretty colored pill! LOL
