I am 32 year old, I have one 12 year child. And I am pregnant again. I have the hypothyroidism. I am taking 100 mg thyroxine tablets from last 3 years till date. In my 8th week the T3 and t4 were normal but the TSH was 12.5. In the 12th week the TSH was 13.00 but the T3 and T4 were in normal range again. Even before pregnancy I was taking 100 mg tablets. Now it is 13th week of the pregnancy running.

I am 2 months pregnant and having hypothyroidism for 2 years. My TSH is 6.3 and I am taking 100 mg tablet already. I don't know what to do now.
