Was any one on lithium when they got pregnant?

I'm 6 weeks pregnant and I have been on lithium for almost 6 years. I know the problems with lithium and pregnancy so I have been weaning myself off of it and will be completely off on Friday. What I want to know is when (if at all) you stopped taking it? what affect did it have on your baby? how did you do with out it? also did you switch to a medication less dangerous?
