You need to talk to your doctors,  Lula,  and not do this online.

If it makes you feel any better I had major surgery during my 13th week of my pregnancy with my baby and she came out totally fine and healthy.  I had morphine and a number of other drugs before, during, and after the surgery.  However you definately need to speak to your OBGYN about the risks and issues associated.
