Struma ovarii is a type of teratoma that produces thyroid hormone. However, due to the negative fb, TSH levels would be extremely low.

Similarly, Graves would have low TSH.

Placenta delivers T4 to fetus, not the other way around. Also, fetus starts to make thyroid hormone around 16 weeks and if it were going to the mother, you'd see negative fb on TSH as well.

TSH producing pituitary tumor would have a high TSH.

Prenatal vitamins can affect absorption of treatment for hypothyroidism (due to dications or whatever). They do not contain T4 because that just doesn't make sense lol
