Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Your hypothyroidism and your husband's diabetes should be controlled before planning a pregnancy.
Then there should be no complications in conceiving.
During pregnancy, your thyroid levels should be controlled.
Because of different blood groups, the child may sometimes have jaundice and other issues.
You should get regular blood tests done to detect this, and there are special injections available to prevent such complications.
So please don't worry, everything is possible.
Just consult a proper gynecologist.
All the best
