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.
