I am on Levoxyl 50mcg and I am 18 weeks today, got tested a week or two ago and my level was perfect right a 1.04 TSH.
I was on the same dose before pregnancy. I am also monitored through out pregnancy.
If you have Hyperthyroid, why would she put you on Synthroid out of curiousity? Synthroid is for Hypo-thyroid aka slow thyroid isn't it?
So this week, I had an appointment with the Perinatologist, the Endocrinologist, and the midwife. Peri said everything looked great and told me I didn't need to come back (yay!). He said he even coded things to make it a little cheaper (and by the price I paid, I'm pretty sure he did). Endo said my labs weren't that bad and the labwork came back in my opinion great, however, he's still raising the dose :( Oh well. It wasn't perfect and I think he's shooting for perfect. My midwife admitted that she pretty much made a big deal out of it so that I would take it seriously . THe first tests she said "Your labs came back border line, you can decide between meds or no meds" I chose no meds. Had she said "I think you should take meds" I would have taken them. Now, because I spilled suger at +1 one time, she's saying I need to be on a diet for gestational diabetes. No way. I had a urine sample taken the day before at the peri and nothing was said about spilling sugar. I'm pretty sure I spilled sugar with dd1 the whole pregnancy. We'll talk about a diet without fruit and white potatoes (I pretty much don't have a lot of sugar otherwise) if it happens again. I think she's making a big deal again so I'll take it seriusly but normally, I don't have a whole lot of sweets or sodas or anything anyway.
Glad to hear the thyroid situation is better. FYI re the sugar, I have spilled sugar at almost every appt. So I ended up getting a glucometer and checking manny blood levels. None were high. So I guess I'm just one of those women who spill sugar while pregnant. It can happen. FYI.
