Hello! Well, I'm pregnant once again. It was entirely unintentional; I ovulated a week early and didn't realize it
. I'm happy to be pregnant again but had hoped to have my thyroid problems under control first.
Since I do not have them under control at this point I'm a little nervous. I'm wondering how often I should have my levels tested and if I'm in need of an immediate increase in dosage. I just had my dosage increased a week ago but haven't noticed a difference. My FT4 levels were lower than they had been since last September (I was pregnant and they were .64; I miscarried at 17 weeks). They're .9 (.8-1.8 range) right now.
I'd like to go to a reproductive endo but am concerned that they'll tell me my levels look fine and I'll be worse off than I was before! I was also told there's a 4-6 month wait which renders it useless in my situation (if I could make it that far into a preg then I wouldn't need to see the endo!!).
Any advice would be appreciated. I contacted my PCP and am waiting for them to call me back. I feel though that you guys are far more knowledgeable (he's actually a physician's assistant).
Love and Prayers, Kelly
