In brief: Talk to your doctor

What medication are you taking? Some seizure medications are not recommended during pregnancy but it is also harmful to your baby if you have a seizure.
You need to balance the risk and benefit, talk to your doctor about what is best for you.

In brief: Yes

Certain classes of seizure medications can be related to significant fetal abnormalities.
Close communication with your ob/gyn and neurologist is very important.
