|Pregnancy & Parenting||Did you have a high TSH level during your pregnancy?!||Jul 30 2008
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in May of 2007 after over a year of trying to get pregnant (the disease can make it difficult to become or stay pregnant). I was put on synthroid and my TSH levels came back down into the normal range. When I finally did get pregnancy in September 2007 my TSH levels soared shortly after I found out I was pregnant. I was referred to an Endocronologist and they immediately increased the dosage of synthroid to lower the TSH levels. The drugs are safe during pregnancy and necessary because if your TSH levels are not regulated it can cause complications. A score of 9 isn't too high. I was scoring between 10-12 and the doctors were not overly concerned but said that it needed to come down and be monitored. I went in every 2-3 months during my pregnancy and had a healthy baby boy in May. Good Luck.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
