Hypothyroid~~pregnant with first child and concerned

From: SCraft - 7 years 4 weeks ago

I am 34, pregnant with my first child and I've been treated for Hypothyroidism since I was 10. My levels have remained the same and I take .75 mcg of Levothyroxin, religiously. (Synthroid didn't work for me)

My question is, should I be concerned and worried sick over birth defects? (which I am) I have done some research and I've found most sites, articles and books to say "if left untreated..."

Any thoughts or advice? Thanks SO much
