Just got the thyroid numbers (TSH) back. Mine are elevated. They wanted to see under 2.5, and mine is 4.3. I have to pick up Synthyroid, and start taking that everyday.
But of course I started googling it, and there are major issues that can occur with an elevated TSH - late miscarriage, low IQ, vision problems, developmental problems. Ugghhh!
My nurse did say that it's very common to find this in early pregnancy and that by taking the meds to reduce the TSH, I have nothing to worry about. In fact, she said the meds will lower the TSH, and that they've seen lower incidence of miscarriage with lower TSH. So maybe there's a silver lining?
I will try to listen to my nurse and freak out here, but I don't like this!
