I'm new to this board, but not new to JM. I thought I should pop in here and get some info since I have autoimmune hypothyroidism and am pregnant. I've been tested every 4 weeks since the beginning of this pregnancy and my Synthroid dosage has gone up steadily. I'm at 150 now, my last TSH was still 5.75. I usually need to keep it around 1-2 to feel good. Funny, but I really feel great though, I was actually surprised it was so high.
I'm reading through the older posts and there is a lot of great info there...I'm glad I stopped by!
I also have Hashi's. They seem to be doing the right thing by testing you ever 4w. Are they just testing your TSH? The free T's are really the most important. Congrats on the upcoming birth of your baby. Don't forget to share the good news with us after!!

I think just the TSH....They did do the entire test at the beginning, including anti- TPO (I don't know if that's the right term, I'm translating from the French!) but just the TSH for follow up, so maybe my other numbers were ok. It makes me nervous though as it's the OB who's analyzing the results and making the dosage changes, and I'm used to being treated by my endocrinologist. He seemed confident to let the OB handle it while I'm pregnant though....
