The answer is no but you must weight the outcome of quitting the drugs. Some birth defects are related to taking drugs while pregnant but we must also consider that the mother's perception of the world is also playing a crucial role in the baby's development. A stressed out mom will give birth to a baby ready to anticipate stress which could result in higher activity of the somatic system and slight reduction in the frontal cortex (seen in experimentation with mice).
Basically you want to be emotionally stable, no stress, in a good surrounding. If you quit the medications you can become very unstable and stressed out which is not a good thing for the baby.
On a positive note, birth defects related to taking drugs while pregant are rare tho.
Woah.....you need to get with your OB/GYN ASAP. Many of the meds you are taking are contraindicated in pregnancy and there are much better options if you decide that you need to be on medication during your pregnancy. This early in pregnancy is a crucial time of development for the baby....PLEASE consult with your OB right away and discuss your med regimen with him/her. If you are under the care of a p-doc...it would be wise to get him/her on board with the plan that your OB recommends. The two docs should ultimately discuss your case together to come up with a plan.
