Your story made feel a little bit better, I tested for thyroid the moment I knew I was pregnant, my results were not normal and yet my doctor didn’t treat me hoping it will get back to normal range by itself . MY HST was 12 🙁 and I trusted her .
Now I’m 24 weeks pregnant and I changed my doctor and started treatment for thyroid 3 days ago . But the more I read about how it effects the baby the more I regret that I trusted the wrong doctor.
The more I read the sadder and depressed I feel .
Is it true that it effects the baby’s brain development? DO they have a lower IQ especially if not treated first trimester?
thanks .
