In brief: Uncertain

This is a complex question and you need to discuss it with your oncologist.
If he or she is not certain, you could also consult a high risk obstetrician. It is usually a balance between what your disease is and the urgency of treatment and the gestational age of the fetus and what medication choices exist.
