Hi Everyone!

I am new to this board. My name is Bobbi. I am 36 and pregnant with my fourth child. I also have hypothyroidism (sp?). It has been 10 years since I have been pregnant and it took us 18 months to finally get our bfp.
My questions to everyone is does anyone here have hypo and managed a successful pregnancy out of it? Also if I have never had any problems in my other pregnancies, like miscarriage are the chances better that this one will be ok?

Probably a stupid question but we have tried so hard for this that it would just break me if anything happened.

First of all, welcome.
My name is Nathalie. I am 36. I just gave birth to a son in November. I also have hypo. I had problems with my pregnancy but nothing related to hypo. I had preeclampsia. Through all the blood tests during my pregnancy, my hypo was very stable and did not cause problems.
So, congratulations on your fourth.
I can not answer your questions for sure about miscarriages but I personnally think that each pregnancy is different.

I am CeiCei (real name Kassia) and 36. I am the mother of two boys and one bundle of joy on the way. I never had any major complications with my pregnancies so I can really give you advice, however, I have discover that my health is a little harder to handle now that I am old.

Congrats and I hope that we get to know you better.

Hello Bobbi
Just wanted to say Congradulations

I do not have any experience with hypothyroidism but wanted to send you lots of "sticky baby dust". I am also getting ready to have my 4th child and my youngest just turned 13 years old.

hello and welcome! I dont have hypo so sorry no help there. What has your OB and primary dr said? As for miscarriage I think it is possible at any age, but not more so for a particular age range. Healthy, eating habits, etc, must play a part in it all regardless of your age. I am 40 and expecting my 3rd in a few weeks. My eldest is 15. middle is 18 months. I wish you a very healthy 9 months and hope everything goes well for you and your little peanut!
This is a pretty slow board but those that do post seem to be very nice and helpful here.

Hi, I'm 35 and expecting my first by the 13th of February. I was diagnosed w/hypo very soon after I became pregnant and my doctor put me on a thyroid replacement. My OB takes blood and checks the levels pretty regularily and it's been fine. From what I understand, the medication cannot harm the baby, even if you take too much of it, but not being medicated can have a negative impact on the baby's development. Congratulations and good luck!
