I'm currently 6 weeks pregnant with my first baby which I'm thrilled about, I made sure my TSH was under 1 before we started trying and I'm keen to stay on top of my Hashi's during the pregnancy. I called my GP as soon as I had a positive test and they upped my dose from 75mg to 100mg a day. I'm going in for a blood test on Thursday (2 weeks on from increase) to check all is ok and have a phone call booked in with the Dr the week after to discuss results.
However where I live the GP does not manage your pregnancy, you are managed by the local midwife team. I just called them to book in my first midwife appointment and the first one they had available won't be until I'm 11 weeks... I told the receptionist about my thyroid issue but she said she wasn't medically trained so couldn't advise of push my appointment any sooner (though oddly did advise that I stop taking my medication if I was worried I was hurting the baby...unbelievable!)
Obviously I've not done this before so maybe this is all fine and standard but I was under the impression I would be referred to an endocrinologist before this point?
I'm just a little concerned and not quite sure if this is normal procedure of if I should be pushing for more?
