Yes, you can definately have a healthy pregnancy & baby with a thyroid condition!! Some women will have what is called transient hyperthyroidism, where their thryoid is screwed up due to pregnancy hormones but goes away as you progress in the pregnancy (less common is transient hypothyroidism), and often no meds are required. I had transient hyperthyroidism with my second baby, never took any meds, and delivered him at 37 weeks with no problems.
This time, I have Grave's Disease, which is an autoimmune disease that causes you to be hyperthyroid. I'm on medication for it. I'm 35 weeks now and everything so far has been fine with the baby, and my doctors all think there will be no complications at all from the thyroid problem.
Good luck! Let us know what the doctor says.

^^ Ditto! Do you know what they are thinking... hyper or hypo??? If it's hypo you may need some meds pretty quickly but as long as you get them & they monitor you, you should be fine! Don't worry, *HUGS*!
