Thanks for writing to us.
Raised TSH with normal T3 and T4 is indicative of latent hypothyroidism. Taking a supplement of 25mcg thyronorm will not only normalize TSH values but will also cause shedding off of excessive body weight. You need to continue the treatment for a successful pregnancy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
