I was referred to a Perinatal Specialist and saw her for the first time on Monday. I was diagnosed with Graves disease and Hyperthyroidism about 1.5 years ago and was still in the process of getting my T levels balanced out and deciding whether to have an RAI uptake (can't do this now due to pregnancy) or Thyroidectomy.
The specialist ordered some labs to see where my levels are right now because I haven't seen my Endocrinologist since late June. I go back in 2 weeks to check baby again and then will go back in 6 weeks to check baby's throat and neck to make sure baby's thyroid isn't enlarged.
Has anyone else had experience with this? I kind of terrified. I was a little out of it when I was there on Monday so I didn't think to ask what would be done if the baby's thyroid is enlarged. I go for my regular OB visit tomorrow so I will ask her. I'm seeing the midwif(v?)e and would assume she'd know.
