So, I'm pregnant! Just...But pregnant all the same. This is my second pregnancy but my first with a diagnosed thyroid condition. I thought I would need to increase my dose as I read that the foetus takes its throxine from the mother until 12 weeks. I called the GP today who congratulated me and booked me in with the midwife for June. She said the Midwives would sort 'it' (meaning my thyroid) all out. That would make me around 6 weeks pregnant. Is this the expected course of action?
Last blood test was 2.5 months ago and TSH was 0.25. I was taking 150mg levo at that point but had hyperthyroid symptoms so began to alternate taking 125mg on one day then 150mg the next. Hyper symptoms went away but now I'm pregnant. I didn't confess to the GP that I'd lowered my dose. They have been really quite unpleasant and callous about the condition in the past and I just don't have the faith that they know what they are doing.
I suspected I was pregnant last week so stopped alternating and reverted back to just taking 150mg daily. Is this the right course of action? I'm very confused but my GP is worse than useless.
