Hi... Congrats on becoming mom... Hypothyroidism itself can cause mental illness... There are  chances of mental illness, miscarriage, preterm deliveries if hypothyroid state is not corrected.  So yes you have to check your thyroid hormone state and then plan for pregnancy.  Also thyroid check up has to be done on the newborn and early treatment started if needed. This improves the risk of the child developing mental illness.....

I have been having what my doctor has called palpitations for the past month, i.e. my heart has been racing unpleasantly. She suggested thyroid or anameia and I have had blood tests, am awaiting the results. Also I had an ECG which is said to show nothing untoward. I am 66 years old and female and I am concerned about the experience of heart racing. I feel as if I am anxious, frightened, and yet I know I'm not. Sometimes these effects last over half an hour, and sometimes eating sweet things sets it off.
