I got this disease AFTER I gave birth and had to stop breastfeeding to go
on PTU. The drug books said it was ok to nurse IF the baby got checked regularly, but
my pediatrician said just stop nursing…she chose the most cautious route. I can certainly understand your fear
about this!! The PTU is helping you not to have another thyroid storm, and
you can’t have RAI when pregnant… I’m sure they would tell you up front if it would be
any danger at all to your unborn child. The way a pregnant body works is amazing.
I bet your baby will be just fine and absolutely gorgeous. I can’t offer you
much except encouragement and a guarantee that I will pray for you daily and
will be trusting God with all my heart for you to have a healthy, strong baby and
to get well yourself. God bless! Glynis
