If they'd do an u/s of the uterus, I would think one of the thyroid is ok.

You're probably right! That makes sense.

Thanks!

Just saw your post and wanted to let you know I had one last week with my new endocrinologist who was very concerned about possible autoimmune diseases that I may have. She assured me it was safe to the pregnancy and was necessary for a complete picture of how to handle my health care. The scan actually was necessary since my thyroid was functioning but she found many nodules surrounding it that pointed us in a different autoimmune direction. We are pending blood results for a comprehensive look at what we are facing if any medical concerns at all. At the time of the ultrasound, I was 11 wks, 3 days best wishes to you!
