hi sammy,
welcome to health care magic,
you need to shift to propylthiouracil a relatively safer anti thyroid drug in once your pregnancy is confirmed stop carbimazole and get your thyroid profile done and start propylthiouracil in the lower doses.consult a physician who will tell you the exact dose as per your thyroid profile.
