Hi there. I am a first-time Mom and at the time I found out I was pregnant, I was simultaneously diagnosed with Graves Disease (a type of hyperthyroidism). Thankfully I found out I was pregnant at only 4 weeks, and started treatment right away. The medication I'm taking is called PTU, and it can do some serious damage to the baby. It is the path of least resistance, and my doctor told me I have to take it if there is any chance I want the baby to survive. Taking a medication knowing it could potentially harm my child, but is saving my own life, is heartbreaking. I am a full time college student, in my senior year of Nursing, and as much as it's a blessing to really understand the in 's and out's of my disease, it can also be a curse. Just wondering if anyone else has been diagnosed with Graves, and if you had any complications during your pregnancy. Thanks so much.
