Any other moms to be with a Thyroid problem?

So yesterday my doctor called me and they had my results for all my blood tests. Everything was normal except my Thyroid. It's supposed to be around a 4 and mine was a 7. My mother and grandmother both had alot of problems with it also. I would have never even thought anything was wrong if I didn't go for the blood test. Now I have to take this medication everyday and I have to go for all these tests to make sure the baby is ok. So any advice? I'm kind of freaking out.

  • What are the chances of getting cancer from it? And can I pass it on to my child?

  • No, you can't pass cancer to your baby.

  • Thyroid cancer is showing up more frequently in young women and is found by our ob/gyn during pregnancy and our physicals. Ask for a thyroid ultrasound and make sure they keep a check on it. And as PP stated you can not pass it to baby.

  • Thyroid problems do run in families. My grandmothers, mom, myself and 2 of my sisters all have thyroid problems.
