In brief: Not always
It increases your risk of complications but if you treat the thyroid disease properly, there is no reason to expect anything bad will happen with the pregnancy.
It's important to get it trated correctly.

If you are hypothyroid your treatment dose usually needs to be increased in the first trimester to ensure the fetus gets enough hormone for brain development
