I have recently just had a miscarriage.


I have been debating if I want to ask or not, but I think maybe it will help. I have recently just had a miscarriage. The baby stopped growing at 6 weeks, I believed I was 9 weeks. I know miscarriages happen more than what people realize, and you constantly think about what could I have done to help. I have had a lot of people say maybe it was because of your thyroid. I asked my specialist, but she said my numbers were where they needed to be for a first trimester pregnancy and everything looked good. Has anyone else had pregnancy trouble or miscarriages and found out that it’s linked to Hashimoto’s? Sorry I am rambling, just a lot to go through and process still!

    I’m so sorry… I lost my angel in November 2013. It was traumatic to say the least. I never went into details on the whys. I try to not question much. My levels were perfect. Personally I link mine to previously having the mirena. We did conceive our rainbow about 4 months later. I had to stay on top of my levels though and have my tsh checked every 4-6 weeks bc it jumped up to 12 by week 9.

  1. I’m so sorry. I can’t give you any information, but I truly hurt for your loss. Don’t give up. Hugs!

  2. I’m so sorry. I know it is natural to wonder what you could have done, but please remember that this is not your fault. Good luck!


    Oh and I also was diagnosed with PCOS insulin resistance, and started metformin 2 months after our loss. I was 8 weeks, baby stopped growing around 6. Pregnant After Loss Support, October 15th was a great helped, they have a sister page TTC after loss Support group.

  3. My sister just miscarried and she has hashis as well. I’m so sorry for your loss. \n\nMy understanding is hypothyroidism makes it difficult to get pregnant. But I haven’t seen anything related to compromising a pregnancy. Maybe I read something about babies being born with heart block, but I’m unsure what that is.

  4. Hon I worked in a docs office for a long time and I’ll tell you sometimes these things just happen. We had perfectly healthy women who had kids before or went on to have them after (or both) miscarry. I’m so sorry for your loss. But please don’t grill yourself about it. There really isn’t anything you could have done that early on. The body is in control there and your numbers were good. Hugs and prayers to you

  5. I lost a baby at 20 weeks many years ago. They never found the cause. I also had hashis and did not know about it . I have no idea how long I have hashis and I am unsure if it is related to the loss. My next baby was premature as well, but she was fine because I was later on in my pregnancy.

  6. That is how I found out I had hashies. I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks. I had the early blood tests done 2 days before so when I told the doc I had a miscarriage she said it was because I have hashies and wasn’t on medication.

  7. Well my angel was 13 weeks when I lost it. I have PCOS, hypo and hashi’s. At the time I was going to a fertility and thyroid specialist. We did blood work two or three times a week and supposedly everything was good. That was until I took all my results to another doctor. Stand up for yourself if you don’t think your doctor is listening!

  8. Hi Kaley. I’m so so sorry for your loss. I also had a miscarriage but it is was before my Hashimotos hit. I just wanted to let you know that I am really sorry and send you the very best wishes.

  9. It depends…..were their fetal components in the gestational sac? Was there a yolk sac? Or was it empty? What were your Bhcgs? What was your TsH? Was this your first pregnancy?

  10. First. I’m so sorry. I am A mom to a 2 year old doctors said would never be here. It took years and we still aren’t sure why we couldn’t get pregnant. One day it just happened. My thyroid hashi’s and hypo plus pcos were al diagnosed after my pregnancy. We are trying for another. I wish I had advice for you. I’m finding more and more as I go on this journey that you have to be your own advocate. Don’t give up. I didn’t and I’m not now. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  11. I have had 4 miscarriages. 3 before my son was born. My tsh was 4.5 back then but they said it was normal but my progesterone was low. So I took it with my son. I had another miscarriage in October and found out only at 6 weeks and started progesterone. Anyways it didn’t end up well and miscarried day 9 weeks but it measured only 6. 3 weeks ago or so I was diagnosed with hashimoto’s..

  12. I am so sorry. A miscarriage is so difficult to endure. I had a loss when our son was about 2 1/2. It was actually how I found out I had Hashi’s. I made an appt. with my OB/GYN after my loss and she gave me the old “these things sometimes happen” speech. Per my request she ran a general health panel on me and everything came back normal. TSH was 1.28. Still not satisified, I sought a second opinion with an RE (Reproductive Endo) and he gave the same speech to me, but he said he would test my progesterone and I asked for a repeat of my TSH. He wasn’t going to at first as I just had it done a few months prior, but I pushed the issue. My TSH came back at 4.54. Ah, I was hypothyroid. Had the antibody test and it came back positive for TGab, but negative TPO. I absolutely believe I was hypothyroid when I miscarried, although I can’t get any doctor to actually say it. I feel I developed Hashi’s during my first pregnancy. If I wouldn’t have sought a second opinion, I wouldn’t have known. I just knew something was off. Trust your instincts.

  13. My son who is now 14 was all fine. I didnt find out i had hashi till after he was born. I have had misscariage after and have not been able to concive. Its really difficult but you will find the strength to go on.

  14. I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks. My doctor thinks it was related to a progesterone problem. I’m not sure if that’s related to Hashimotos but if I had to guess I would bet $ that it was related.

  15. Yes, women with Hashimoto’s as well as Grave’s Disease have a hard time holding a baby. It’s like our immune system sees the embryo/fetus as foreign tissue and attacks it. I can’t hold a baby either

  16. I just want to say I am very sorry for all of you who have lost. I want to give you a bit of hope though. I was not able to have munchkins until I was optimal. But when I was on the right dose that all changed. There is hope for healthy babies with hashi! I now have two they are 8&5 and thriving. So please if that’s your wish don’t feel that because you have hashimotos that it’s impossible. I can’t promise it’ll be easy or free of more heartache ( there are many possible reasons for miscarriage after all) but it is possible.

  17. I have lost 3 at 7, 9 and 10 1/2 weeks. You need to know that people with Hashimotos have to have a TSH belov 2.5 when pregnant!

  18. I’m sorry for your loss. I lost a child at 7 weeks and could never conceive again due to Endometriosis. Best of luck to you.

  19. I lost 2 of my 5 pregnancies way before I even knew I had Hashi and before facebook and the internet. I know how hard it is. But most of us do go on to have successful births. Take time to heal and lots of love sent to you.

  20. So sorry for your loss. I lost 2. One at 10 weeks and one at 8 weeks and It took me over a year between miscarriages to get pregnant. This was before I knew I had Hashimotos. I had a bunch of issues but did eventually get pregnant and carry to term. He is now 16. It can leave you raw and sad. Take the time to heal. Hugs Best wishes
