Thyroid Symptoms During Pregnancy

When it comes to your thyroid function it is so important for the development of your baby. Testing the thyroid is something that most conventional do when you have a thyroid problem and pregnant.

When you have a thyroid issue testing shouldn’t be the only thing looked at. You should really pay attention to your symptoms. Usually, symptoms show up way before they will show on your test results.

Thyroid disease symptoms can be a lot like pregnancy symptoms but much more intense. First, you should learn about both hyperthyroid (too much) and hypothyroid (too little) symptoms.

Symptoms of hypothyroidism while pregnant:

  • Excessive fatigue
  • Excessive hair loss
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Cold extremities and intolerance to cold temperatures
  • Very dry skin
  • Memory issues or difficulty concentrating
  • Slow fetal growth

Symptoms of hyperthyroidism while pregnant:

  • Rapid heart rate or palpitations
  • Hard to breathe or shortness of breathe
  • Shaky hands
  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
  • Weight loss or slower than normal weight gain
  • Slow fetal growth

Do not ever look past these symptoms as they can harm you or your baby. Reach out to your doctor so you can come up with a treatment plan.
