Hello and thank you for asking.
I can understand your difficult situation.
The TSH level is too high for a pregnant women and as you know the side effects in fetal development are not excluded. Even though they are considered rare.
You can not evaluate them now, all you can do is to keep monitoring the TSH levels closely.
Best wishes,
