Hello ... Normal TSH level in pregnant woman is less than 2.5 with a range of 0.1-2.5 in first trimester of pregnancy....so yours is little above the normal level...T4 levels should be checked to determine whether the hypothyroidism is overt or subclinical.If T4 is low, the diagnosis is hypothyroidism, so get T4 count and consult general physician with report.
