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
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!
