i understand that you are a 36 year old pregnant female and concerned about your thyroid test. If your TSH is high, it suggests that your thyroid is functioning low and you may require medication.

untreated thyroid disease may carry a risk of miscarriage, but if you start treatment that should not be a problem.

wishing you a good health
