Are you already on thyroid hormone? If so, you need to increase your dose immediately. Probably by at least 50 mcg, but you need to work with your doctor. If you are not on thyroid hormone you need to get on it straight away. Probably you'd be starting on a dose of up to 100 mcg.
This is very very important for your baby and so you can have a healthy pregnancy.
During pregnancy requirement for thryroid hormone can increase by up to 50%.
Regardless you need to be on meds to get your TSH down to just under 1.0. This is critical for you and your baby's health.
I am 7 months pregnant and also have hypothyroid. If you want more info you can also message me directly. Very best wishes.
