Looking for some advice please
My daughter is 34wks with her first child. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis (autoimmune thyroid disease)
I've encouraged her to ask midwife for full thyroid function test and thyroid antibodies. Midwife referred her to consultant who said no as it doesn't effect pregnant women.
I know from my own research and thyroid UK and other thyroid websites and Facebook that it does.
Autoimmune diseases often run the the family so I'm concerned for her and the baby. She is getting very short tempered/irritable, tired, sickness (like morning sickness).
I know irritability and tiredness are normal in late pregnancy.
I was wondering if I'm worrying unnecessarily about her thyroid or is common?
Thanks in advance from a first time grandma
