Discussion : You have to discuss it with your cardiologist, who can assess your risks and explain them to you.

Best answered localy: This issue can only be answered honestly by the people who have seen & evaluated your case. The stress of a pregnancy may or may not be reasonable & the cardiologist in consultation with your pcp and or OB can gauge the risks involved. I caution you to seek their advice before trying as the stress could be dangerous to you & baby alike.
