    My tf4 was 18.9.
    It sounds like everything is within the normal range. 15 - 30 is the range for fT4.

    I'm 13 weeks pregnant today and my tsh is 40 and my fT4 is 12 so I've doubled my meds to 200mg. It really sounds like you don't need to worry. Hugs try not to stress

    Really? My report says possible subclinical hypothyroidism. Hence why I got tested again today.

    I guess sub clinical means beginning stages of hypothyroidism? Which explains why your levels seem normal to me (remember I'm not a doctor) the docs probably see something in your levels that I don't

    I have already had one successful pregnancy and healthy baby after developing my thyroid disease, as long as you have your regular blood tests and remember to take your meds, all should be fine for you

    Unfortunately this pregnancy is high risk but most probably not from my thyroid disease but my poor bub looks like it has chromosal probs

    Good luck with your pregnancy

    Under 2.0 is ideal for pregnsncy but mine was 4.3 in the first trimester as your thyroxine requirements go up. My dose increased to 100 mcg and it came down too 1.3

    Thanks for your help
    My Ob wasn't actually concerned with the results it was me that started googling after seeing the report and I've requested to be tested again.

    Oh gosh, I hope your bub is ok xo

    Are you on any meds (thyroxine)? If so you are best to wait 4-6 weeks before retesting as it takes a bit for the levels to change

    Thanks, us too!

    My GP picked up my pregnancy induced hypothyroidism at about 6 weeks. Apparently there are different 'normal ranges' for pregnancy. I'm seeing an endocrinologist for it who checks my levels every 4-6 weeks to make sure my levels are stable and he tweaks my thyroxine dose if need be. Ive had to have a couple of dose changes. My Obs says its very common in pregnancy and should resolve shortly after delivery.
    Don't know about anyone else but the thyroxine disrupts my sleep but other than that it hasn't affected me too much.
    I was worried that I'd gone 6 weeks untreated but the endocrinologist said that only gross hypothyroidism would affect the baby so there is nothing to worry about.

    My levels were borderline for hyperthyroidism. I had a repeat test to check levels again as apparently it can make you sick and seeing as I have hyperemesis I don't need to be sicker.

    Yes, the endocrinologist didn't say it would be a problem.
