Hello. Welcome to hcm.
Hypothyroidism in pregnancy is absolutely safe if not treated with drugs. Make sure you continue to take drugs til you deliver. Hypothyroidism treatment is long term.
I advice you to continue the pregnancy,take tablets,have regular check ups and pregnancy will be uneventful.
All the best
