Has anyone been on Neurontin (gabapentin) throughout her pregnancy? Is it ok to do?

Yes - with care. Neurontin (gabapentin) is a class c drug for use in pregnancy, indicating that rodent studies have shown increased teratogenicity that has not been replicated in humans. If your neurologist thinks it is the best drug to control your seizures, then it is ok to use the minimal effective dose for that purpose under maternal-fetal medicine supervision.
