I'm an active TTCALer that has been benched for the last 6 months. Right before being benched I was diagnosed with having a couple of anti-thyroid antibodies and having subclinical hypothyroidism. I don't have full blown Hashi's . . . yet (but it may be in my future). They put me on .025 mg Synthroid and have been monitoring me.
Last month's TSH was 1.4 (a great number for me), but this months boomeranged up to 4.37 (the highest I've had in a year). I'm concerned because I'm worried they are going to bench me even longer until my numbers stabilize more. 4.37 is within the old "normal" range, but outside of the newer range that the AACE suggests which has 3 as its highest value. From what I am reading, however, most of the literature with regards to hypothyroidism in pregnancy, the recommendation is a TSH value closer to a 1 for early pregnancy.
Obviously, I am going to talk to my doc, but was curious to get some feedback. For you ladies that are undergoing treatment for hypothyroidism during pregnancy, what TSH and/or T4 levels are your docs targeting?
