I would advice you to go for thyroid function tests after the pregnancy and depending on the report would advice on whether to continue eltroxin or not.

Right now you have to continue it throughout the pregnancy.

As fluctuations in thyroid levels are common in pregnancy and in postpartum period.

Would advice you to follow your doctors advice after the pregnancy.

Take care.
