I've done a search through the forums and have found a lot of posts about being dx'd with hypothyroidism but I didn't really see talk about weight gain/loss while pregnant after being put on medication.
I'm on my 2nd pregnancy and started this one about 20lbs heavier than I was with #1 and even then I was already "obese" though due to my lean body mass I consider it more overweight. I'm obviously concerned about weight gain with this one and was hoping to hear from other mamas who were on medication for hypothyroidism during a pregnancy.
If you were dx'd during pregnancy and put on meds, did your weight stay the same? Did you still gain or did you wind up losing?
Also, to those who have already had their children, were there any obvious affects from the hypothyroidism on them such as delayed development or learning disabilities?
Thank you in advance for reading and responding. I was only told this on Thursday and have my first appointment with the endo tomorrow regarding this so I hope they do a good job answering my questions. But nothing beats hearing experiences first hand from those who actually have gone through the situation.
