: Good Luck, Holk
Sorry it took me so long to respond to this, but I haven't been here in a while.
for starters, you got past the first hurdle which is a ++pregnancy test and that's wonderful. I didn't get that far as my beta was so low that it was only detected by a beta blood test. I did do some reading and since you got pregnant, as long as you start some kind of treatment, things could progress just fine.
You may need to take antithyroid meds, such as Tapazole, but Endocrinologist are experienced with treating women that become hyper while pregnant so they would know what dose to start you on and it would be low I"m sure.
I right now am having the opposite problem as my TSH is high again and I'm trying to get it down before i can try and conceive again.
I left me email address here, so please keep in touch and let me know how things progress.
You're in my thoughts and prayers and best of luck with this.
Also, try and find out if you have antibodies attacking your thyroid like I did and if so, you may need to take heparin and baby aspirin, so please look into this as that may have been the cause for my chemical pregnancy not going on.
