moya moya and pregnancy

I am a 30 yr old female wanting to get pregnant soon. I had a stroke in 2006 as a result of occluded middle cereral artery and was subsequently diagnosed with Moya Moya. I had a stent that failed and then had STA-MCA bypass and EADS in 2007. The prognosis has been improving (at last check, the artery was wide open again, and I had good flow through the bypass). I have been on Plavix daily and recently switched to aspirin 81mg. My question is: what are the risks to me and my baby if I get pregnant? Also, should I stay on aspirin or Plavix during pregnancy or seek another form of anticoagulation (lovenox)?
