Hypothyroidism can cause considerable problems in pregnancy. I would suggest she see her endocrinologist first and then an obstetrician with a good understanding of her health issues. The endocrinologist may be able to recommend someone.

Also, maybe you could ask the mods to combine your two threads. People are only going to give you half the answer if they can only see half the question.

I agree with @katelove , in this case if she has no functioning thyroid left, then it must be being completely replaced by medications. IN that case, the knowledge of an endocrinologist is very important, at least to get started and get the right information, in my opinion. Good luck!!
