Pregnancy post CABG

Im a 34yo female.  My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant with our 2nd child.  I've had single cardiac bypass in September of 2014.  Theres not much information online about pregnancy post CABG.  I did not have any signs or symptoms of cardiac disease at any point with the exception of a very slightly elevated bp while in labor with my first child.  Any information on the risks would be appreciated.  I have been cleared by my treating cardiologist.
