I am currently pregnant with my second child (both pregnancies have occured after being diagnosed with GD). The first pregnancy occured while I was being treated with PTU and all went well. I received RAI June 1995 and conceived July 1996 with no problems. This current pregnancy is going as well as the first. My new endo. treated me as having a “threatened abortion” and monitored me from the minute I discovered I was pregnant. I was on PTU for a few months and progesterone lozengers for the first 12 weeks to try to help insure the baby’s well-being. It is true that unsettled levels can lead to miscarriage. One thing that I think I have going for me is a great endo. He’s a fertility specialist and an endocrinologist so I fell like he’s perfect for me!
Has anybody had a successful full term pregnancy since GD and RAI? I had a miscarriage probably because my thyroid got too low. Now I can’t get pregnant-hormones out of whack eg. not ovulating regularly. I’d really appreciate any comments or advice. Thanks!
