Hypothyroidism (high TSH) is not a very serious disease. But you need to take medicines (Thyronorm) regularly to avoid effect of high TSH on your baby's brain development. (High TSH will affect baby's brain development). So better to take prescribed medicines. Also check TSH level every 4 weeks to be sure that TSH level is under control.
Wish you good health.
