In brief: Possibly but unwise

Hypothyroidism reduces fertility, making it more difficult to conceive but it is possible to get pregnant when hypothyroid.
However, that would be unwise because hypothyroidism during pregnancy increases risk of miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, premature birth and having a mentally retarded child. It is important to make sure your thyroid level is normal first. See http://www.Ivf1.Com/hypothyroidism/.

In brief: Yes

The issue is: you have a greater chance of losing the pregnancy if your thyroid is not properly regulated.
