In brief: Seizure pregnancy
Pregnancy increases weight and liquids and dilute seizure meds, thus trigger seizures.
Need regular check of blood levels of meds. Change in protein content in blood also contributes to altered levels of med in blood. Increased liquid pressures in brain can alter state of control of seizure also. If you had no sz for a long time, you may have a chance to go free during pregnancy. Good luck +++++.

Pregnancy does not affect seizure disorder but medications affect pregnancy
