ooh, Erin, good idea! thyroid IS a really common problem during pregnancy.
Xastur- you should call your doc today, don't wait for two weeks.
Normal pulse is around 72. Pregnancy pulses rise 10 bpm to around 82. It's called tachycardia at 100 bpm, and I was told to go to the emergency room when it got to 120 bpm. When your pulse starts getting that high, it mucks out the ability to carry oxygen, and you do start getting faint, and feeling that you're not able to breathe. I've been there, and it's horrible! In any event, just call in. There's no reason to wait til your next appointment and suffer that whole time, and (of course I don't know if it's harmful) but it can't be good for baby. Take care, and let us know how you're doing!
