Pregnancy and Effexor

I have been on effexor (75mg) for about 5 years now and just found out I am pregnant (4 weeks).  My doctor has said that in the event that I get pregnant that I should immediately stop taking the drug.  I have tried stopping without weining before, but have not been successful.  It is not that easy to do.  But i do want to get off of them by wiening over the next couple weeks.  It is okay for the baby to stay on them for a couple more weeks in order to wein myself off of them?  What is the BEST thing to do?
