I am pregnant in first trimester and my doctor suggested that I should check TSH level. It turned out to be 0.094. I have never before checked it so I don t know is this caused by pregnancy or was low even before I was pregnant. Can this in any way affect my pregnancy and should I get some treatment or not?

I would like to know whether this high TSH level will affect the grwoing foetus and what measures should i be taking to prevent any complications. I take the hypothyroidism tablet first thing in the morning and my other folic acid and progestrone tablets after breakfast and dinner. Is this the correct way to be be followed
