Welcome to HealthCareMagic,

The normal range of TSH is 0.3-4.0 uU/ml. Your TSH is slightly high, which means your serum tT-3 & fT-4 level should be low. Thus, if your serum tT-3 & fT-4 level are below normal range, you should take Thyronorm as prescribed by your doctor. By supplementation with Thyronorm, if serum tT-3 and fT-4 are kept in normal range, will not have any bed effect on you and fetus.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

With good wishes,

Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma

Thyroid diorder in pregnancy requires special attention, Are you suffering from Hypothyroidism before pregnancy or it is newly detected in any case it must be controlled to avoid any fetal and maternal complication even requirement of Iodine increases in pregnancy.Free T4 and TSH should be checked in 4 to 6 weeks and dose of levothyroxine is adjusted accordingly to keep TSH level 2.5 mU/ the first trimester and below 3 mU/l in last trimester. It is safe to take Levothyroxine in pregnancy udersupervision of Pyhsician/Endocrinologist.
