I have normal T4 and high TSH in pregnancy

Hi I am 7weeks 2 days pregnant . my Tsh was normal before pregnancy but after pregnancy first week it was 11 doctor put me on 25mg levothyroxine, next week TSH was 8.5 then doctor increased the dose to 50mg then TSH 6.5 then 4.5 then again increased to 6.5 now she recommended to take 75mcg. I am scared because my TSH is not on the normal range I am reading on the internet that it might affect the fetal development and affect the baby IQ level. I dont know how my TSH levels are going to affect the baby. Please I need your advice
