You need to talk to the endo or ob, but I would think they’d tell you that your levels need to get down to a healthier range before you should TTC

phoebephoebo:  don’t worry, they will just give you meds and recommended you hold off ttc for a couple of months till your levels settle down. Untreated, hashimotos cen cause temporary infertility and miscarriages. But it’s easy to treat 🙂 i have hashimotos and had no trouble getting pregnant and have a healthy baby. I just had to have regular blood tests and change my med dosage a couple of times throughout pregnancy.

Oh my goodness I cannot believe you’re trying for #2!!! How the time has flown! Congrats momma!

Hashis is easily managed with medication, and it should kick in very quickly once you start it.

I do not have hashis, just hypo, but I had to get it under control before I could maintain a pregnancy. The second pregnancy was much easier to conceive than the first. Good luck!!!

phoebephoebo:  Don’t worry my TPO antibodies were much higher (2478).  With my first pregnancy I suffered a MC at 6.5 weeks.  After that, my endocrinologist got my TSH below 2.5 to mitigate the risk of MC and we are currently expecting our first child in June.  The endo will want to get frequent blood tests to montitor your levels and adjust your dosage of synthroid as needed.

phoebephoebo:  I was diagnosed with Hashis hypothyroid in January. My antibodies are only 333 and TSH 4.7 but my Endo wanted my TSH below a 2 before TTC. I was finally regulated (and at a 1.8) in April and it’s taken us until this month to get pregnant. Though it may not be related at all, 7 months is still a normal time frame for healthy couples to comceive! My TPOab haven’t been retested yet, not until I go in for my first blood draw now that I’m pregnant, but I’ve read many studies and articles that advise cutting out gluten and fixing your diet to keep them in check. Gluten mimicks the shape of your thyroid and your body can recognizes it as your thyroid and attack it, which can also cause growth to new antibodies. I’ve noticed that even cutting down on gluten also makes me feel much better as well. Good luck and it’s great that this was found ahead of time! I hope your journey is short and very successful!
