    Are you hypothyroid? If so you can expect them to check your thyroid function. I had to drop my dose as pregnancy messes around with levels. Sometimes needs increasing. I need to have 3 growth scans at 32, 36 and 38 weeks to check that it is not interfering with growth. My BMI is raised so need glucose tolerance test at 28 weeks. Have to deliver in a consultant unit not a birth centre. Hope this helps.

    Same as hypothyroid so should do similar but different units vary.

    I'm hypo thyroid too but only marginally - on 25mg thyroxine. I've just been told I need bloods tested a few times but that's it. Nothing mentioned about scans or labour! Got a consultant appt in July but thought that was for my heart murmur rather than thyroid x
