Hi ladies! I'm new here. My name is Kristen, and as of tomorrow will be 5 weeks pregnant with our first! I am hypothyroid, on Armour. My question is this: conventional m/s advice is to keep crackers by your bed and take them first thing in the morning to avoid feeling so sick. Well, having to take thyroid meds complicates that! I was wondering if any of you BTDT mothers had any advice? No real sickness yet, but I am hoping to be prepared when/if the need should arise. TIA!!

Hey Kristen! I am totally new here, but I just went through where you are now. I started thyroid meds when i was 8 weeks pregnant, in the midst of m/s! I just about laughed when i read the directions saying to take on an empty stomach with a full glass of water. I dealt with it by mixing gatorade with water (half and half) instead of plain water. And the pharmacist gave me permission to nibble on a soda cracker if I really needed to. I did do that. And just try to eat 1/2 an hr after taking it. I am 13 weeks now and sometimes i still feel a little nauseous after the pill and glass of water, so I just try to take it really slowly until I eat. Better to nibble on a cracker and NOT barf up the meds

and congrats on the pg!!! If you take it with crackers, be sure to do it every day. As long as you're consistent, all is well.

Thank you! We're super excited

Thank you ladies! That makes sense, better to be consistent and get most of the medicine absorbed then none of it b/c I threw up!

Hi and welcome! I used to wait a full hour before eating, after taking my Armour. My specialist just recently told me that he was certain that 1/2 hour should be long enough to wait before eating. I think there are some good suggestions here, so I hope it will work for you!
