Bipolar pregnancy

Hi all, I've just found out I am pregnant and I have been taking Abilify (Aripirazole) and Lamictal (Lamotrigine) for the last year, against bipolar disorder, my doctor recommended to reduce it slowly and then stop it. He said that I have taken it so far wouldn't harm the baby. I am still very worried and wondered if anybody has any experience with this. Thank you!

I've had three kids, all perfectly healthy and was on Lamictal with each. We didn't even change the dosage. I'm actually surprised your doc wants to mess with it. I'm not sure about Abilify though.
