In brief: No studies

There are no human studies of Gabapentin use during pregnancy, but animal studies have shown fetal problems.
There have been delayed ossification in skull bones, vertebrae, and extremities. Hydroureter and hydronephrosis have also been reported in animal studies. These results mean Gabapentin should only be used in pregnancy when benefit clearly outweighs risk. Discuss with your doctors.

In brief: Depends

Depends on why you are Gabapentin in the first place? It is pregnancy category c (the best i can recall).
You should ask your doctor if the risks outweigh the benefits.
