Hi, I have finally gotten pregnant after almost 2 years trying. Ended up being gluten that was a barrier to my fertility - got pregnant within a month of going cold turkey and cutting it out.
I'm now 8 weeks pregnant and have had thyroid bloods done twice:
At the 4 week mark, TSH was 0.17. Can't remember exact T4, think it was 17. Dose was 125mcg daily of levothyroxine. I was exhibiting toxic symptoms and my GP wanted to drop my dose to 100mcg daily but I'm very sensitive to changes so we agreed on 125/100mcg alternate days.
At the 8 week mark, TSH was 0.28 and FT4 was 15.4. My GP said neither is where she wants them to be - TSH should be between 0.4-2 and FT4 should be in upper quartile, so about 20.
I'm seeing the midwife today but has anyone got any information as to specifically managing thyroid in hashimotos pregnancies?
I feel awful if it counts - currently signed off work with low BP/shortness of breath. All other blood tests (iron/liver/kidney) came back as normal.
Thanks for any information/advice.
