Question Hypothyroid and Pregnant?

Anyone else dealing with this? I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism 2 year's ago. Iam currently 16 week's and 6 day's pregnant and have been on 88 mcg for that long also. Iam worried for some odd reason Iam going to lose this baby because of this condition? Anyone answer's are appreciated? Thankyou.

Re: Hypothyroid and Pregnant?

If your levels are good, you have no reason to worry that your thyroid will cause trouble.

Your MD should have tested your free T4 and TSH immediately when you were found pregnant and periodically since. Pregnancy will increase your need for T4. Is he/she keeping a close eye on that - not just TSH?
