Well my FT4 came back .. high! so my Endo is having me skip a full dose on Sundays until I retest in 6 weeks.

And I had bleeding during sex last thursday. A lot. They did a ton of bloodwork and an U/S showed a baby and a heartbeat. Got a call yesterday that a I have Low Progesterone and to start taking 200mg of Prometrium.

Did a little research and it seems low progesterone and hypothyroidism are often linked together.

It makes me wonder why this is why I have such irregular cycles when thyroid levels are off, and why it took me so long to get preggo this time.

I wonder if they shouldn't be testing all pregnant women with Hypo for low progesterone. I hear testing for it is not common unless you have bleeding or were on it prior to getting pregnant.

Why do you need to go to a peri? I've had Hashi's since 03' and didn't have to go to anyone other than my OB with Oliver.

Yep, me either... I had hypo last year when I got pg but was never referred to a peri.

I'm not sure. I think it's because of Hypo, dating a week behind at 7 weeks, unexplained bleeding, asthma, and history of a leep?

The referral sends me to do an NT Scan next month, check cervical length and Level II u/s at 20 weeks. She said the peri has better machines and is an expert to monitor growth, which can be affected by Hypo.

Thanks. It seemed odd to me too, since Hypo doesn't consider you high risk in itself.

I think they are only having the Peri do the scans with the better machines to monitor growth, rather than a standard ultrasound lab tech. I will still have my regular visits with my OB's.

Ditto. I would decline all that if I were you. There's nothing during this pg right now that would make you high risk. It seems like a perfect set up to convince you that you need a c-section as you get closer to your EDD.
