I would suggest you to increase your dose if you have not.tsh rises in pregnancy as it's requirements increases.ypur TSH should be below 3 or atleast around 3.there is not particular food that you need to avoid as such.but avoid taking coffee post two hours of consuming medicine.always take thyroid medicine in empty stomach.it is absorbed better.cabbage is beleived to prevent absorption of thyroid medicine.so eat in moderation.

The baby will undergo a metabolic screening test after delivery which in most of the cases proved the baby to be safe fr baby body and mind.
And sometimes food can aggravate the thyroid levels. So avoiding cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, radishes, peanut, soyabean, kale, spinach can also help maintaining thyroid levels. Limit the sugar intake to balance the thyroid levels. Increase the intake of good fats like avocados, olive oil, salmon, ghee.
Do not worry about weight during pregnancy.
