I think you should keep the baby, and in my opinion, there is no compelling reason why you should not. I am not a doctor and I know a mother has different perspective on any kind of treatment during pregnancy.I copy an extract from a recent article:

"Safety data on HBV antivirals during pregnancy come from two major sources, the antiretroviral pregnancy registry (APR) [67] and the Development of AntiRetroviral Therapy Study (DART) [68]. There was no significant difference in the rate of adverse outcomes reported if an HBV antiviral drug was initially used in the first trimester (3.0 and 2.1%) compared to the second or third trimester (2.5 and 2.1%) of pregnancy. These rates compare favourably to the background 2.72% rate of defects in the general population reported by the CDC birth defect "

The whole article is available at:

I suggest you talk to your liver specialist and gynaecologist about any concerns you may have.

Congratulations on your pregnancy.
