For triglycerides level to be normal you will have to keep low on sugar & fat. You have not mentioned how high it was, or if you are taking medication for it. If yes, then continue with your medication , as adviced for both- hypothyroidism and cholesterol. Since the overall metabolism is slow (hypothyroidism) you need to be watchful of what you eat and be active , and do what is adviced by your obstetrician.

Triglyceride levels are a part of cholesterol tests and measure the amount of fats circulating in your blood. High triglycerides during pregnancy include certain personal habits and blood disorders that may develop during pregnancy. Blood Pressure - Pregnancy may cause you to experience an increase in your blood pressure, which may result in an increase of your triglyceride levels. Blood Sugar - Eating a lot of sugary foods while you are pregnant can elevate the amount of sugar in your blood, which can lead to high triglyceride levels. Gestational Diabetes - High triglycerides during pregnancy may be a result of gestational diabetes, which is a type of diabetes that can develop while you are pregnant. Medications -If you are taking certain types of medications while you are pregnant, including steroids such as prednisone or diuretics these can cause high triglyceride levels.
There is a relationship between thyroid levels in the mother and brain development of her child. Inadequately treated hypothyroidism in mothers was associated with IQ changes in the infants. The average IQ scores were about 4 points lower in the children of hypothyroid mothers than in children of normal mothers. Larger IQ deficits were seen in the children of mothers who had more severe hypothyroidism. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism in pregnant women can have long-term effects on the children of these mothers
