Answer: Hello dear. Ideally in first trimester it should be less than 2.5.If the TSH is greater than 2.5 at any time during pregnancy, T4 levels should be checked to determine whether the hypothyroidism is overt or subclinical. So please consilt your gynae and based on it the gynae will increase the dosage. Hope it helps.
