Are there chances of the baby getting affected if I forget to take synthroid prescribed for hashimotos ?

I am 7 months pregnant and have hashimotos disease. I sometimes forget to take my 88mcgs of synthroid (which I am supposed to take once a day), will this affect my child?

welcome to hcm
hashimoto's disease causes the thyroid levels to be low in your body(hypothyroidism)
if hypothyroidism is inadequately treated in pregnancy,it has been associated with low red blood cell count in the mother,muscle pains,weakness,low birth weight babies,miscarriage,stillbirth.
i suggest its best you take your medicine regularly.also get your thyroid levels checked every 3-4 weeks.
take care!
