I was in the same situation. I stayed on my meds untill I talked to my doctor and we came up with a treatment plan. We decided to go off all meds during my pregnancy and I did perfectly fine. Every situation is different though, that might not be good for you. Make sure you talk to your doctor ASAP though.

I stopped taking my mess as soon as I found out I was pregnant, I was taking antipsychotics though, I'm now 28 weeks, it was rough in the beginning because my Dr refuses to treat me while pregnant. But after the first and some of my second trimester ice calmed down a lot and things ate much easier. Good luck to you and Congrats!!
