diet pills and pregnancy

I have been taking diet pills for at least five years and recently (4 months ago) got on phentermine and redotex from mexico.  I just found out today November 10 that I am four months pregnant!  I've had no signs of pregnancy, havent had a period for at least eight years, no bump, no sickness, absolutely nothing, but did an ultrasound and found out. What my concern is, is if the baby will be healthy or if the pregnancy should be terminated?  I've heard lots of bad things about diet pills and pregnancy.  I also spoke to my OBGyn's nurse and she said that may be a big concern.  Can you help me with anything?

When I was breastfeeding I almost took Liproxenol. So I asked the manufacturer of this diet supplement and was advised to not start taking them. I guess it's a general rule for pregnant and breastfeeding women to avoid taking supplements that are not related or might affect their pregnancies. When I stopped breastfeeding that's when I took these diet supplements. It helped a lot in increasing my metabolism that made my weight loss program more effective.
