Negative for Hashi's, so what is causing my hypo?

My antibodies tests both came back negative and the Endo did an ultrasound of my thyroid and said it looked totally healthy. So, what could be causing my hypo? My Ft4 and Ft3 have been low for at least 6 months and my TSH increasing up to 3.8, until i finally got on Synthroid, and it is slowly coming down, but only to 2.95 after 4 weeks. I should also add that i am 13 weeks pregnant, but i've had symptoms for over a year.

If it's not Hashis and my thyroid appears healthy on an ultrasound, then what is causing this?

Re: Negative for Hashi's, so what is causing my hypo?

My thyroid looked "normal" in ultrasound too but after less than a year my endo couldn't even find the thing (I have high antibodies so Hashi's for sure). You can have Hashi's even without elevated Abs. At this point it's more important to get proper treatment - I sure hope you're getting a dose increase. Feeling any better?
