Oops.. I forgot to upadate.

Normal Thyroid function is .45-4.5. Ideal for pregnancy is .5-2.0/3.0

Mine was 21. Now this is down quite a bit from where it was last year when it was tested. So either I'm coming down off a Thyroid attack (auto immune = body attacks thyroid and levels go up), or the natural Bladderwrack supplement I was taking was actually working. lol. I stopped it 10 days before the blood draw, but it takes time for thyroid levels to go back up once they are down.

So I'm on 50mcg of Levothyroxine for the next 8 weeks. I go back for blood work sometime in the last 2 weeks of the Rx they wrote for me. I will either continue with the 50mcg, or he will change it based on the results. 50mcg has never gotten/kept me below 7 in the past, so we shall see. He didn't see the point lowering it too fast, since I'm not currently pregnant and DH is away.
