The dosage will be prescribed by the Dr. please see your Dr. soon however congrats that it has come down a lot and within normal ranges.
Dont worry you have been diagonised at the right time nothing to worry. you will be on medication which wud bring your levels under control..if proper medications are taken it will not affect the child.
The baby will undergo a metabolic screening test after delivery which in most of the cases proved the baby to be safe.
And sometimes food can aggravate the thyroid levels. So avoiding cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, radishes, peanut, soyabean, kale, spinach can also help maintaining thyroid levels. Limit the sugar intake to balance the thyroid levels. Increase the intake of good fats like avocados, olive oil, salmon, ghee.
Do not worry about weight during pregnancy.

Answer: Hi dear,
Thyroid is an important gland for overall function of our body.during pregnancy it's requirements increases.usually the normal level is 0.4 - 5.5, but pregnant mothers should maintain it below 3. However the new recommendations for tsh levels in pregnancy are the following:
First trimester: less than 2.5
Second trimester: 0.2-3.0
Third trimester: 0.3-3.0.
Dosage often requires fine-tuning, so continue to check TSH every 4 weeks during the first half of pregnancy,your doctor would tell you the right dosage.
