10wks pregnant and withdrawing from effexor

I am currently 10 weeks pregnant with my second child. I was diagnosed July 2017 with GAD ad was prescribed effexor. Originally 75 Mg but after finding out I was pregnant my doctor changed me to 37.5 for 2 weeks and then stopping or switching to zoloft(its safer while pregnant) I decided to give it a try and just get off meds. The withdrawals of effexor has been brutal. Between the vomiting,nausea etc and being pregnant, it has been brutal. Today is day 3 with no meds and today I started to experience extreme dizziness. It feels as though i have spun and spun and then suddenly stopped. Like my brain and eyes are trying to catch up. I did not have any of these symptoms with my first pregnancy so I can't directly relate it to just pregnancy. Has anyone else taken or stopped taking effexor while pregnant? Please help!
