i have hypothyroidism, which is typically under control with medication. last pregnancy, my medication never needed to be adjusted.

but, i just saw the results of bloodwork i had done last week, and my tsh *is* a bit elevated (3.6, which is above the current acceptable range of 3.0, but it's within the old acceptable range of 5.0).

has anyone had to deal with this during pregnancy? and at what point does the medication need to be adjusted?

I have it as well and so far my levels have been good every time so I haven't had any adjustments to the meds. My doctor is fixated on my thyroid condition for some reason. She had me do a level 2 ultrasound and she takes blood at every single appointment! I feel like it's overkill, but whatever.

lol it does seem a bit overkill. ...my first pregnancy, i had to insist they check it-- they had no intentions of looking otherwise. but it's dangerous to have your levels out of whack, pregnant or not, and it's really common for levels to need adjusting when you're gaining weight.this time, they only JUST checked (at 16 weeks), but i think they might check again in a few more weeks. ...i'm just not sure at what point they consider the levels too high, since standards have changed.

I have Hypothyroidism as well. During my first pregnancy my OB, at the time, ran thyroid tests at every appointment and my meds were adjusted quite often. So far during this pregnancy my current OB and my Endocrinologist have decided on testing me every 2 months for the first and second trimesters. I have only had my meds adjusted once so far. I have another Endocrinology appointment coming up soon. My Endocrinologist and OB have said that once I start my third trimester they will want to check my levels more often. I gained more weight with my first pregnancy than I have so far with this pregnancy.
