In brief: Complications
Uncontrolled hyperthyroidism during pregnancy can increase the risk of miscarriage, preterm labor, low birth-weight babies, stillbirths, pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure, low platelet, protein in urine and mental changes).
..You should not have uncontrolled hyperthyroidism during pregnancy. Please make sure you have an experienced endocrinologist on your team.

In brief: Possibly serious.
Maternal hyperthyroidism from graves' disease (most common reason - an autoimmune condition) can affect the pregnancy and fetus adversely in many ways: preterm birth, decreased birth weight, fetal/neonatal hyperthyroidism with or without goiter, polyhydramnios, cesarean section and arrhythmias are all possible, as is fetal loss.
A maternal-fetal medicine specialist and endocrinologist should help!
