I was diagnosed with Hyperthroidism last November of 2012. I have 3 kids and the last one was born on March 2012. Months later, I was having some weird symptoms and I found out I have Hyperthroidism. Took Methimazole for a short period of time because I could not handle the medicine so I decided to just have a surgery to have my thyroid removed next month May 2013.
I just found out that I'm 5 weeks pregnant. Went to see my Endo and he told me that I have 2 choices to control my Hyperthyroidism. One is to take PTU for the first trimester and then Methimazole on second trimester. There is a risk for my liver and the the baby especially with the PTU. Second is surgery on second trimester but I also have to take medication to control my Hyperthyroidism before the surgery. There is also a risk with the anesthesia for both me and the baby.
So now, I don't know what to do. I am even considering not doing any of those until I have the baby then go from there. I am thinking that maybe proper diet and eating certain foods might help the baby.
Please, any thought, advice and experience will help.
