Hi everyone. I unexpectedly found out I was pregnant recently. My tsh was about 7 at time of conception. I have had a total thyroidectomy a few years ago.
My tsh is now 4 and I am at 6 weeks. I have read that the optimum is below 3.
Is there anyone out there who have had a high tsh during early pregnancy? I have gone on google and researched but nothing is clear. It does mention it can cause low IQ and mental retardation etc which terrifies me. My gp cant advise and basically said I cant give u a solid answer as the baby may be fine.
I have become that anxious about this that I've thought about terminating as I do not think I could cope with a disabled child.
