I had the same thing, I went to an endocrinologist and they did a sonogram of my thyroid glad that showed it was completely normal. I went back 3 more times for follow up blood work and my levels had stabilized. I'm now 34weeks and my baby girl is fine.
Hi, I have hypothyroidism and I'm pregnant with my 2nd. If they think your levels are off its an easy fix with medication. One pill a day. Untreated it can sometimes cause developmental delays in children. It's not uncommon for women to get it in pregnancy and for those with it it's likely to get worse. If you are showing symptoms and they're worsening I'd see your doctor and have your levels re-checked, but it's not a huge deal to have thyroid problems in pregnancy :)
I have the same during this. I was in India this time when I found out, and had the thyroid test done almost by mistake. I had 3.6tsh and normal T3 T4 levels. They put me on 12.5micrograms of thyroid medication, which is the lowest level in India, and only half the lowest level available in the US. When we got back, I did the test again, and my TSH levels are back to normal. My ob here thinks my medication levels are too low to even have ant effect, but he has kept me on it never the less.
I am taking it because hypothyroidism can pose a risk to the fetal brain development.
