pregnancy and seizures

I am 30 years old and pregnant with my 2nd child since having my first child my seizures have become more frequent and worse. Having no less then 8 back to back when they start. I am currently taking keppra 5000 mg vimpat 400 mg a day as well as having the VNS implant in my chest at a very high setting nothing seems to be helping is any one else having the same kind of problems? Or complications while they are pregnant or became pregnant?

As we are not doctors here we can only give you so much advice.  I think the best thing to do is work with your doctors.  I wish you luck, and please be sure to come back and update us when you find out more.
