    I have the same plus A neg blood. They will check your thyroid function test and may alter your dose. Mine has been checked twice and they reduced my dose as I happened to have a test before I found out I was pregnant. They also offered me 3 growth scans at 32, 36 and 38 weeks these have changed slightly as I have gestational diabetes so and had the 32 week scan at 29 weeks as had reduced movement.

    I'm used to those butchering injections lol is it only me who thinks they are the worst ever lol!!

    I'm off to the nurse tomorrow to have my thyroid bloods done. I haven't made an appointment with the doc :/ just gone straight to the nurse cos il only have to book to get the bloods done anyway.

    I've had 2 emergency sections and a planned section - had 3 so how can I be shitting it already and I'm not even 5 weeks pregnant!!
