I posted before about being hyopothyroid and I appreciate the responses. I just have another questions because none of the Drs I talk to have any idea how to handle thyroid and pregnancy. I already have one child and didn't think I would be freaking out with this pregnancy, but I am.
I also had thyroid cancer and I increased my dose from 1.25 to 1.37 as soon as I got a positive pregnancy test. At 8 weeks my tsh was 2.7 and I asked to increase the meds so the tsh would stay under 3 and they said no. So I said ok I wnt bloodwork at my next visit. So I had bloodwork at 13 weeks and my tsh is now a 6. She was going to up my meds from 1.37 to 1.5, but now says that 1.75 will be better.
I need some reassurance the having a tsh of above 2.7 after 8 weeks will not harm the baby. I googled and tons of things come up about even slightly high tsh while in the first trimester. Wouldn't the baby take what it needs and then I would feel crappy because of that? I don't care that I have felt crappy, I just can't stand to think that the baby wasn't getting the thyroid hormone that they needed.
