AIBU to think that if someone comes to you to book in as pregnant, and they have a history of thyroid problems, that you'd do blood tests as soon as possible to check everything was alright.

Not a GP, but yes also if you are on thyroxine your dose needs adjusting ASAP

Not a GP, but yes, thyroid levels need to monitored closely during pregnancy and thyroid dosages adjusted if needed.

Would depend on the problem and what treatment they are on now if any.

If they had an under active thyroid on thyroxine I'd immediately increase the dose.

Historical treated and long since normal over active thyroid I wouldn't be asking for urgent tests no.

If you aren't happy then discuss with your actual GP not the Internet
