Hello! Me again... I haven't been on for a while but really need your help.
I tried to get pregnant for 5 years and 3 of those were absolute hell trying to get my Thyroid levels managed. Eventually in November my TSH was at 1 (funnily enough I fell pregnant that month..the month my TSH was at a reasonable number after years of being fobbed off that a borderline result would be fine)
I am now 9 weeks pregnant and Just had my TSH checked again and it's back at a 4 (but hey it's under 5 so nobody actually cares. I am fine it is fine) but it's not to me it's crept up to much and I am lead to believe I should of had an increase in Levo since my body is now using the Thyroid for a baby aswell but NO.. I have been told not to increase and it's fine and should be left until February when I get it checked again and if it's no longer in range then they would increase my medication.
Is this correct? I am freaking out! I know my body I know the fact it's back at 4 is telling me I need some more Levo to help this baby aswell as myself and I read the first 12 weeks were important because then the baby starts to use it's own? So surely now is the most important time to be having an increase.
Am I worrying about nothing? Any pregnant women on here did you get an increase is Levo? What was your TSH during your first trimester. I cannot stand dealing with Doctors when it comes to the Thyroid because aslong as your in the one size fits all reference range all common sense goes out the window.
I never felt better than I did with a lower TSH but before that everyone was happy aslong as it was below 5.. I am talking a 4.95 was still totally acceptable to them. I tried to look online for some advice or something to show the doctor but then it went complicated talking about T4 etc and I am clueless myself about all of that stuff as everything else has usually been fine but TSH so we stopped testing for everything else. I Just needed to rant and I feel ignored and lost and so scared I will lose this baby due to Thyroid neglect.
