I am 14 weeks pregnant. At my last doctor visit he said my thyroid was a bit enlarged and ordered bloodwork. I just talked to my doctor and he said my thyroid level is a bit high (hyperthyroid). He does not want to treat me for fear that I will switch to hypothyroidism. He just told me to be aware of my heart rate (i.E. Palpatations) my doc seems really laid back about it but i'm wondering if he is just acting cool about it so I won't stress out. I have read really bad things about it. Should I be worried? Is there any self help measures I can take?
