Three years ago, I had a total thyroidectomy, due to papillary thyroid cancer and underwent RAI. I've been pretty healthy since then, even managing to lose over 100 pounds. I have a 5 year old daughter, who I had a perfect pregnancy for. Since then, my husband and I have decided to have a baby together. I am currently on 150 mcg of Armour Thyroid. I have to be kept a little on the hyper side of it all to prevent reoccurrence. I am just really confused as to how this is all going to go. I don't even know where to start and I am so afraid of a miscarriage that I am thinking twice about this. I have read about having monthly blood work done and doctors having to up your strength, but I feel like what I am on is pretty high. Do you think it would have to be lowered?Any information would be greatly appreciated. :smile:
