I was just wondering for any of you who are hypo....how soon from the time that you found out you were pregnant did you see your dr. for the first time?

I had read that it's important to see your dr. because your levels can change a lot in the first trimester and you may need an increase in your medication. But when I told my dr. this past week that dh and I will be starting to ttc soon and asked him if there was any need for me to have me to have my levels checked early in the pregnancy for my thyroid he said no? I swear all the conflicting info is gonna drive me batty.

It is important to have it checked monthly during pregnancy. I am seeing an RE right now and he told me that I needed my checked once a mth during pregnancy.

I emailed my Endo as soon as I found out (4-12) and she had me come in for a blood draw that week. She then scheduled an appt. for May 3, but a lot of the delay was due to schedule conflicts. I will see her once a month unless my levels really start getting wacky.

I would get a check at 6w and then every month after that. My meds never needed adjusting (to my surprise) when I was pg with Oliver, so it doesn't always need to be. It's not a huge emergency.
