Effect on the fetus: I assume that your doctor is warning you about the possible effect the medication may have on the developing fetus. If possible, it is wise to get the medication out of your system before the fetus is starting to develop. However, if it is medically necessary for your health, it may be better to stay on the lowest effective dose. Good health habits will provide best fetal development.

Caution in pregnancy: Neostigmine is category c in pregnancy, meaning that we really don't know how safe it is because it hasn't been studied. You have to weigh the risks and benefit to the mother against that unknown. Particularly before conception there may be a higher risk of affecting the fetus during organogenesis, when all of the vital organs are being created. Second trimester may be a little safer.
