In brief: Depends
Doctors don't make anybody do anything.
They provide recommendations. There would not be any significant risk to mother or fetus from an ultrasound of the thyroid gland if it was indicated. Most frequent way to examine fetus in a pregnant woman is with abdominal ultrasound that does not harm child at all.

In brief: Teen thyroid
Only if they felt you had a goiter or measured thyroid antibodies in your blood.
Pregnancy is a peak time for women to develop thyroid dysfunction. Especially likely with strong family history of thyroid problems.
