This is only a decision that you can make.  However, what you should know is that there ARE anti-anxiety medications that can be taken during pregnancy if the benefit outweighs the risks.  Typically its best to avoid these during the 1st trimester though.  There are also medications that can be used to control panic attacks during pregnancy which are considered relatively safe (Xanax analogs for pregnant women).  So, if you were to get pregnant and need help with anxiety then there are options out there for you.  Only extremely severe anxiety might have an impact on your baby - preterm labor would be a typical complication.
