Thanks for your query.
Please have thorough preconceptional counselling with a gynecologist before planning a pregnancy.
Take regular folic acid supplements 3 months prior to pregnancy.
Continue taking medication for hypothyroidism, and ideal TSH prior to pregnancy should be less than 3.
Please look into morbidities like diabetes and heart disease which could affect your husband's fertility.
Take care.
