In brief: Yes

It is not only safe, but it is very important to take your thyroid medication while pregnant.
Having thyroid that is too low or too high can cause complications with the pregnancy or birth defects in the baby. If you have thyroid problems your thyroid will be monitored closely during pregnancy.
