I've never had thyroid issues, but my doctor ordered thyroid tests as routine blood work at my first appointment two weeks ago. She called today to say I have a hypothyroid and need to take medicine. Of course, I googled hypothyroid and all the info that comes up is about how it causes mental retardation and other developmental problems, especially in the first trimester. I will be 9 weeks on Wednesday.
I should've known something was wrong. My hair has been falling out, I've felt depressed, and I have no energy.
Anyone have experience with hypothyroidism while pregnant?
