    I had bloods done at around 12/13 weeks when it was picked up.

    I was really worried at first but after talking to the doctor and finding out it was actually a really common problem that once managed its normally ok I felt heaps better

    The doctor told me he had had patience with 18/20 + who went on to be ok

    I googled and of course dr google never says anything positive!!
    Is the dr concerned about the baby at all?

    2.94 is within the normal range, I have my pathology results in front of me here and it says 0.2 - 4.00 is the normal range. Do you know your fT4 level?

    I think the up to 4 range is for a normal adult not a pregnant person. I'm hoping the cut off for pregnancy is 2.99 not 2.5 like I'm reading, but I think it also depends what pathology clinic you go to...
    My tf4 was 18.9.
