Low T3, high T4, normal T7 & high TSH.

I am preganant, without insurance ( only because my insurance denied me coverage) and I have to pay for all my labs out of pocket.  I had a Thyroid panel done and I have been trying to get an appointment to see an endocrinologist  but  I cannot get in until Feb.  My OB has limited knowledge of Thyroid issues, and suggests I get some more info if I can.  My numbers dont appear to be extremely out of range, and I read some online info that says that pregnant patients with hashimoto's, can normally  have elevated levels. I just wanted some explaination of these levels, and to what point should I be concerned. I am going to have another panel done in 3 weeks to monitor it.  Besides being a tired busy mother chasing a 3 and a half year old around all day and having heartburn..I feel great.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated:0)

Thanks! ~ Kate
