: My doctor admittedly isn't familiar with Armour thyroid but has been prescribing it based on my reactions
: (positive) to a previous prescription. Now I'm planning to get pregnant next year, and there's the question
: of how Armour affects a fetus versus Synthroid. Does anyone have any experiences with hypothyroidism
: and pregnancy? Any idea where to go to get info on the two drugs and their impact on a fetus?
: Many thanks!!

All I can tell you is I have been on Synthroid for 20 years (since I was 7 yrs old) and have to children, both are fine but did have
have problems with pre-term labor and some spotting. My second child who is now 6 1/2 months old was born 1 month early but
every thing was fine. Hope you have a good OB that will stay on top of things. Good Luck.

Deb :-)
