If your thyroid: is controlled (as I don't know what your thyroid problem is) you have no greater risk than any other 34 year old woman. Work with your doctor.

Pregnancy: with close follow up it is not risky. There may be a slight increase in risk of Down's syndrome.

If not treated: Patients with either over or under activity of the thyroid should be evaluated before getting pregnant and followed closely during their pregnancy as the status of their thyroid condition may change during pregnancy. With these precautions one should have a good pregnancy outcome.

Depends: It depends upon what the "fix" is. If you've been started on replacement for hypothyroidism, fertility can return quickly. If you've been treated for hyperthyroidism, it can take a little longer for you levels to drop to normal. Any other abnormality, such as a nodule, does not affect pregnancy or fertility as long as function is normal.

Yes, for good: Having a thyroid is good for your pregnancy and your life. It's pretty hard to live without one. If you are taking thyroid replacement medication under the direction of a doctor, this also is safe for the pregnancy.
