16 weeks pregnant mother

Question: Hi, I am 16 weeks pregnant my TSH test came 3.56 during first trimester tests and doctor advised to take thyroid tablets. Whereas when I consulted with other gynae (family friend) she advised its not higher range and it will be totally fine if I am not taking tablets so I am following her advice but I am little concerned about my baby too. Whether not taking thyroid tablets can put an adverse affect on babies growth? Anyone please suggest what should I do?

Answer: U will b asked to test blood sugar level once again till that continue taking metformin.. Metformin will never affect ur baby or ur pregnancy.. just like folic acid n multivitamin include this.. If ur levels are low after testing for the second tym u will b advisef not to continue metformin.. Happy pregnancy!!
