Anyone have a thyroid disorder?

Just found out I'm pregnant and I'm scared because I also have hypothyroidism. Anyone have it as well or know anyone that has it during pregnancy?

Oh I'm sorry love. I was talking to my endocrinologist and reading up alot and I read that miscarriages are very likely in the first 8 weeks when u have hypothyroidism. All it said you can do is to make sure your levels are really good before conceiving

Well im already on 200, and i haven't got a positive result yet, but know im pregnant cus im nearly a month and 3 days late lmao.  And i never missed a period in my life. And im having other symptoms besides the missed period but i also heard some people with hypothyroidism its hard to get a positive result on a test

Is this your first time possibly being pregnant because it is very hard to get pregnant when you have hypothyroidism. IDK about the tests cuz all 10 I took we're positive lol I'd make an appointment with the OBGYN

I was 6 weeks when I took the tests and found out. Just this past Thursday I went to my endocrinologist and she upped my medication from 175 to 200 and my blood test said my thyroid was on track which made me feel better. I go to the OBGYN for my first appointment this upcoming Thursday
