  • how old is your baby? chances are your thyroid was checked when you were pregnant...can't hurt to have it tested again either...GL
    BTW i had no idea i had a thyroid condition til i saw my OB about infertility

  • I would get it checked out. It's just a simple blood test. Do you sweat a lot? That's a big sign you have thyroids too.

  • Get it checked...normally if they check in pregnancy it is only the t4 levels...demand t3's

  • I would get it checked out, I was feeling like you are and I started losing a lot of weight to the point that I looked anorexic, I went to the doctor and found out that I had hyperthyroidism.
