Hello, so I've been struggling with under active thyroid since my daughter was born four years ago. Over the last year I started using NDT and followed a regime of supplements and lifestyle that had me feelng well. In fact better than ever. I feel I have been very lucky and now I am pregnant with my third child. I am a bit worried about managing my health through pregnancy.
I currently take 2 grains NDT daily
B12 liquid with B complex
I have an appointment with GP on Friday to ask for blood tests. Can anyone give me advice as to what levels I should be checking now and throughout this pregnancy. Also, are the sups I currently take generally safe during pregnancy and are there others I may need.
Also, I have read up about increasing thyroid meds during pregnancy. The studies say to increase by 15% but at the moment I still feel really well and feel that would over medicate me right now.
I'd really like to hear others experiences of pregnancy and thyroid issues. thank you
