8 weeks pregnant and really worried about my thyroid level......

I just got some bloodwork back and my TSH was 4.19 and my Free T4 was .78. From research I have been doing I am really worried that my thyroid may be unactive. I haven't talked to my dr. yet but was wondering if anyone has had a similar situation???? Could this have harmed my baby since I am already a/b 8 1/2 weeks and didn't know it was low???? Any input would really help.

Make sure you consult your dr. soon. Your thyroid produces hormones that makes the baby grow. I am hypothroid and when I found out I was pregnant I researched it alot. Goggle it and find out some info on it. I also read that if you do have a thyroid problem it is hard to get pregnant. So maybe it is not so bad. Good luck.
