      Thanks for the reply. I live in Madison, WI…you, too? My endo
      is with Physicians Plus, also a woman. Anyway, she said that if I get pregnant
      while on PTU and my levels continue to escalate or don’t improve, a second
      trimester thyroidectomy might be my only option. Otherwise, the baby would
      be at risk of being born with goiter, or worse, without a thyroid. I started
      the PTU on Sunday, and the taste is AWFUL. I’m hoping that I get used to
      it as time goes on. My husband and I have decided to take a wait-and-see
      approach to having another baby. I’m 32, with 2 boys ages 7 and 5. Don’t want
      to wait too much longer, but am hoping to at least see some progress after
      my first set of blood work in six weeks. A girl can dream!!

      I’m so glad everything went well for you. I’m sure it’s hard to tell, since
      you were pregnant, but did you experience fatigue on PTU. In just 3 days,
      I’m so tired that I actually have been napping…not easy with two young kids.
      Is this normal??

      My best to you and your family. Thanks again for the helpful information.
