It's also unlikely that your thyroid is so far out of whack it would cause a loss, and you just find out now. Not saying it couldn't happen, but really it's unlikely.

Call on Monday and ask for your levels to be checked if you are concerned, which you are.

I am, however, hypoglycemic with this baby. And that could be most of issues. I must eat well, and eat at intervals
Thanks for that. I hadn't thought about my thyroid, but now I'm genuinly concerned. And yeah, I would imagine if that was really the problem (or it was THAT bad) that I would have noticed symptoms before I got pregnant. And not only that, but if thyroid problems can cause a loss, I would think that the doctors would automatically check this level when women come in pregnant.

I wouldn't stress. Its worth having checked out. I just know the headaches and hot flashes flare up when mines being a pitb. Its most likely just hormones!!

Re: Normal pregnancy symptoms?

Hypothyroidism symptoms:
  • Dull facial expressions
  • Hoarse voice
  • Slow speech
  • Droopy eyelids
  • Puffy and swollen face
  • Weight gain I'm pregnant
  • Constipation I'm pregnant
  • Sparse, coarse, and dry hair
  • Coarse, dry, and thickened skin
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (hand tingling or pain)
  • Slow pulse
  • Muscle cramps
  • Sides of eyebrows thin or fall out
  • Confusion
  • Increased menstrual flow in women Has increased over the years, since children. Recently has become kind of heavy, but my periods are also irregular. The more late it is, the heavier it is. DEFINITELY nothing ridiculous, though.

Would she FEEL a difference if there were something wrong with my thyroid?

She felt right around where my "adam's apple" is. She held there, and told me to turn my head, and swallow.

Yes, she could. You had no symptoms prior to pregnancy. While its absolutely something we who suffer from it need to be monitored for, you could likely look up a lot of auto immune disorders and find that you are half the symptoms..

Okay, that makes me feel better. She didn't say anything, or order testing, so I think it's safe to assume that my thyroid is okay.

Whew. I'm a firm believer in having knowledge, though. It's good to know what the options/possibilities are. If my voice becomes hoarse, I could chalk it up to screaming, or I could say, "hmmm." and know that it could be my thyroid, so that I know to get it checked, know what I mean?

Sure, and it's an easy blood draw. So ask for it if you want to do it. It doesn't hurt anything

In your opinion, should I call about this on Monday, or can it wait until my next appt. November 7th?

I guess I'm pretty convinced that I'm okay, since she didn't feel/notice anything. If I continue to have my symptoms, I will talk to them about it when I go into my next appt.
