Hi Anon,

First of all, Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Levothyroxine is used with precaution during pregnancy, so if you just found out you're pregnant then you may want to contact your doctor and let him know to see if he wants you to stop taking it. I wouldn't take it anymore until I spoke with him.

Try not to stress out about what harm you could have caused your baby, after all, over the next few months you will be routinely monitored, tested, and guided through your pregnancy. Take it easy and relax-- it's best for your baby :)

Wishing you the best possible pregnancy and a happy and healthy baby,
