Post liver transplant pt. and Pregnant

I just found out I'm pregnant and I am also a transplant recipient. I received my liver 10 years ago. I am concerned about complications etc. Has anyone experienced this issue?

Of significance in a Medscape article (Sandeep Mukherjee, MB, BCh, MPH, FRCPC I found the following paragraph:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Although reports show a good success rate of pregnancy in liver transplant recipients, these pregnancies carry high risk to the patient, fetus, and allograft, and need to be closely monitored in specialized centers by a team that includes a transplant hepatologist, a transplant surgeon, and an obstetrician experienced in high-risk pregnancies, in addition to a perinatologist or neonatologist
