In brief: Please clarify

Not sure if you mean your OB said it's ok to continue Klonopin (clonazepam) while trying to become pregnant and during the pregnancy or just while trying to conceive.
I would defer to guidance of your OB as long as you trust and respect your doctor. That said, if you can manage on a lower dose through pregnancy with some relaxation strategies, that is worth trying. Best wishes for a healthy fourth child!
