Adrenal insufficiency is a very serious disorder and as mentioned by dr. Powers needs to be managed by a specialist.
Adrenal fatigue is a diagnosis that is very controversial in the medical field and many doctors do not consider to be an actual disease. Before taking anything for it during pregnancy, you should discuss with your OB or endocrinologist first.

In brief: Specialist
If you primary adrenal insufficiency, you will need to correct it before pregnancy.
Untreated, maternal mortality in pregnancy can be as high as 45%. If treated appropriately, you shouldn't have a problem, although you will need Hydrocortisone at delivery, along with adequate saline hydration.
