Are there any Bees TTC or who are pregnant who are dealing with autoimmune issues – mainly Hashimoto’s or Natural Killer cells? I’m facing a possible diagnosis with one or both. I’m having a hard time finding information about it on Google and need a little guidance on where to find good background/treatment, etc.
I need a little hope too that I can get pregnant with one or both of these diagnoses!
Thanks in advance!

@1littlep: I’m currently not pregnant or TTC, but I recently had a LO (4 months ago) and was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism, which may or may not have been a result of my pregnancy. I’m still in the early stages of diagnosis and treatment, but I’m feeling slightly better. I was started on Synthroid and know it’s compatible with pregnancy and nursing (up to 125mg for nursing, not sure with pregnancy). Also kellymom.com has a whole section on thyroid issues and testing while nursing and some pregnancy. Also there are some docotrs that specialize in thyroid and pregnancy. Might be worth a shot to see if there is one in your area. I’m sorry I’m not more help, but just wanted to let you know you not alone.

I’m bumping this! I have Hashi’s and would love to start a Thyroid TTC support thread somewhere.

i am not pregnant but i have an autonomic disfunction (so called vegetative disfunction). I’m able to get pregnant, it doesn’t directly affects me or a possible baby, it’s treatable if i am avoiding the stress, i have great results. but i think you might have something else than i do, i’m not even taking any medicine, i just had a long stress and that caused this disfunction. good luck

I have Graves’ disease, an autoimmune disease of the thyroid. I’m not TTC right now, but I just had a total thyroidectomy and I hope my disease doesn’t affect me too much in the future because of it. I wish you ladies the best of luck with your treatments.

I also have Graves’ disease and after several years of PTU, I’m in remission. I’m not TTC yet but will in the next 6 months and am a little nervous about how long it might take.
