Elevated TSH levels

I am so much tensed and nervous now, can't really explain..  feel like I have done the biggest mistake of my life. My thyroid problem was diagnosed in 2010 and I didn't take it seriously till Jan 2012, at which time my TSH was whopping 30, fT3 and fT4 at 5 and 12 respectively .. after which I was on regular meds and met a great endo and finally after regular follow ups my levels were Tsh = 0.1, T3 = 4.1 and T4 = 14 in Oct 2012... and then I went overseas for 2 weeks in november and took one strip of thyroxin with me but my mistake that I switched off the refrigerator and when I came back I just switched on the refrigerator, never realised that the tablets were not in "working" refrigerator for last two weeks and are of no use.. So, I continue taking the meds (obviously which were useless) and my follow up was after 3 months which was 2 days ago and my results came as TSH = 12 T3 = 4 and T4 = 14... I would not be too much worried about this but adding to the complication is the fact that my pregnancy results came positive which means i am 4 weeks pregnant as of now.. so now i have lost my sleep reading all on internet that uncontrolled thyroid levels can cause havoc and what not to the baby. I also realised that there are different measurement units of TFTs in different parts of world. I am in Australia and here normal levels of TSH = 0.5-5.0, T3 = 3.1 - 6.0 and T4 = 11-21. Please please help !! I just want a healthy baby !!!! Are there any tests that can confirm if the baby is growing healthy without any deformities??? I have an appointment with endo this wednesday.. I am just praying to GOD that all goes well.
