Not sure if there are any experts on this here but I can't afford the fee in the "doctors forums" right now, posted this in another forum too so sorry for the repeat. I was diagnosed with Graves disease ten years ago. I have been under constant treatment and monitoring for my thyroid which is now hypo. I am 30 weeks pregnant and just found out this week that my baby is in the 5th percentile for birth weight, she is dangerously low at 2.5lbs. I now have to undergo twice weekly stress fetal stress tests as well as weekly ultrasounds until my due date. I have been keeping my thyroid under close watch this whole pregnancy with regular blood tests, I eat healty, no bad habits. Is there anything else I can do at this point to save my child?
