    Default Anyone with thyroid issues?

    I have Hashimoto thyroid issues and am on synthroid. My endocrinologist is monitoring me closely because the baby doesn't have a thyroid until 3 months.

    Just got my labs back and my levels are elevated ;( but what suprised me is that they don't want to adjust my dosage.

    Anyone else have gone through a pregnancy on thyroid medicine? Synthroid is on the list of approved medications, but I was curious.

    I take 75mcg a day. My doc plans to check it once a trimester. That's all I got so far, sorry

    I'm on 137 a day right now, but am only a year and half into treatment.

    I've been on Synthroid for about 17 years now! My Endo just adjusted me from 150mg (or is it mcg? can never remember) to 175mg. My levels were at the lower end of normal on the 150 dosage when I was tested during my first pre natal appt, and he wants to be extra careful and get my levels to the higher end. Totally safe during pregnancy and as long as your doc will be doing blood tests throughout the pregnancy, I don't think there is too much to be concerned about...
