If the TSH levels have increased it means
1.. Either you stopped taking medicine for hypothyroidism
2.. Or the dose being given for control of hypothyroidism is less.

You must make it a point that hypothyroidism is corrected properly otherwise you may find difficult for pregnancy to achieve.
The ideal levels of TSH,for conception,should be around 2.
You must consult an endocrinologist for proper evaluation and treatment of your wife's hypothyroidism along with a regular advise from your Gyneobs.
