This is my first pregnancy and I am only 5 weeks. We have been so lucky in getting a BFP from our first round of IVF.
Last week I was pretty sick and diagnosed with OHSS. I had a follow up appt with my specialist yesterday who did some more blood tests and today she has told me my thyroid level since falling pregnant has gone from 2 to 3.3. She said in pregnancy they like our levels to be under 2.5 and an underactive thyroid (which mine is at 3.3) can cause development issues for bubs, particularly brain development & I've read it may possibly also cause miscarriage.
She has prescribed thyroxine and told me to take in the evening away from my pregnancy multivitamins (I take Blackmores pregnancy & breastfeeding) and only take Monday - Friday as taking too much can also cause damage!
Hubby & I are feeling very nervous. Has anyone else been in this situation? Or anyone been on Thyroxine in early pregnancy? If you wouldn't mind sharing your story or advice please?
Thank you in advance!
