Hi ladies, I could use some thoughts and prayers right now. I got my thyroid checked the day I got my BFP and it was normal (Tsh 1.9). My acupuncturist suggested I get it checked again and since I work for a lab, I had them run tonight.

My Tsh is very low (0.126) but my Free T4 is normal (1.47) and my T4 is slightly high (11.0). I am not sure which of these values matters the most but I am very nervous. I'm so scared that this could cause a miscarriage. It looks like I could possibly be hyperthryoid but I'm not sure.

I'm calling my RE's nurse tomorrow and leaving a message about this and hopefully they get back to me quickly.
I don't even know if she is the one I'm supposed to call since she told me to make an appointment with my OB. But I haven't even seen my OB yet so I figure my RE should be the one to call.

I'm just really scared right now.

I have no idea what that means tho. I suffer from very slight hypothyroidism, but I've been advised by several doctors that as long as the problem is slight and looked after by my doctor with regular testing, it should not cause any problems during pregnancy.

BUT!!! I found this....

I'm not trying to scare ya, just trying to give you some of the information I was able to find that made sense.

I'm sure your doctors will be able to let you know what's happening! KUP!

I know they checked my thyroid trying to figure out the culprit to my recurrent miscarriage ... I would ask to be seen tomorrow, ASAP, even if you have to sit there all darned day.

Tons of T&Ps!!

called both my RE and OB's offices and Dh is faxing my results to them. But this morning is surgery day for both doctors so I won't hear anything until this afternoon.

I'm a little less panicky but just nervous that I've already hurt the baby.

I'm guessing they might order more bloodwork and then we can go from there to figure out if I need meds. It just sucks because I want to know RIGHT NOW what I need to do.

Some websites say the Tsh matters a lot but others say it only matters what your FreeT4 is. If the latter is the case, that's excellent, because mine is normal.

I'm pissed off at my body, my thyroid levels have always been normal. I get pregnant and they decide to get all messed up.

P.S. Thanks Ashley for the info. I'm hoping that my Free T4 being normal is a good sign.

Keeping you in my prayers today, Shannon. Since your docs are out of pocket until this afternoon, do your best to relax and know lots of us are holding you up today.

Heard back from my RE (via her nurse) she said I am released to my OB so to follow up with her. But she said it is not something she would be concerned about and that she would repeat bloodwork in 1 month.

I'm waiting to hear back from my OB and see what she thinks. It sounds like it is nothing horribly urgent and I do have appointment next Thursday if nothing else.

I'm super eager to hear what they have to say so I'll check back tonight from work and see what your OB says. Good luck, and try and keep calm. Keep in mind Thyroid hormones are hormones, and your hormones are all out of whack because you're pregnant, so it seems logical! Even Salt, too much or too little, can affect your TSH levels I've been told!

Oh sweetie - I am sorry you have had such a scare. I would be freaked out too. It sounds like the RE seemed to think it was okay though - so I hope the Ob agrees. (((hugs))) & KUP!

I spoke with my OB's nurse, my OB said my levels are normal. She said pregnancy can change the thyroid hormones and she wasn't concerned about those numbers.

I also spoke with my acupuncturist and she said it sounded okay to her as well. She just said keep an eye on it, keep checking the levels every 4-6 weeks.

So I guess 3 professionals can't be wrong, my RE, OB and acupuncturist seem okay with my levels so I guess I overreacted. I'm feeling lots better. Thank you ladies for all the prayers, I am just kind of a nervous wreck about stuff like this. I just don't think I could handle losing another baby so this stuff gets to me.

I'm going to ask more questions when I see my OB next week. I'll probably push and see if I can get her to order a Free T3 just to make sure that is okay as well. I got the impression that they weren't that concerned since my Free T4 level looks okay.

Oh and what's funny is that my nurse at the OB's office just realized I was pregnant! I thought she knew and that my chart from my RE had been sent over. But she didn't realize till she called me back and she was really happy for me. It makes me feel so great, the receptionist there and now the nurse were both excited for me because they remember me from last year from my miscarriage. I know my OB is going to be happy for me as well...I can't wait until my appointment next week.

I'm so glad that you got good news and they're not worried! I didn't figure they would be unless the numbers were all super way off!

Yay!!!! I am so glad they all think it is okay. I too get a LOT of relaly extra sweet treatment about DS at both my reg Dr's office & my Ob. They were all so happy for me when I had him. My Dr's office has been awesome - because they were all so excited for me in the first lace when I got pg the first time (that is where I got my BFP) and they were all really sweet after my loss (although by then I was seeing an OB for all my reproductive stuff)..... It is nice that they have been so supportive to you...I am glad.
