Hi,

Thyroid test is not routinely done in pregnancy.

It is advisable to get your thyroid function evaluated if:
you are currently on treatment for a thyroid disorder
you have a history of thyroid disorder in the past
you currently have symptoms suggestive of thyroid disease

Hope I have answered your query.
