Drugs and pregnancy

Okay, first I'm going to the Dr but they can't see me for two weeks. I'm scared. I am pregnant. Lmp was end of July. I am on a bunch of meds. Cymbalta, Lamitical, and Valium. Has anyone used these meds before during pregnancy and if so did you have a healthy pregnancy? I'm scared something will be wrong with my baby and health professionals won't give me answers until I see them.

I had to get off ativan when I was pregnant. Valium is a benzodiazepine like ativan.

The valium is the one I'm MOST worried about. How long were you on the ativan before you found out? I know any answers are anecdotal but I'm grasping at straws here.

I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks and tapered off the ativan for about 2 weeks.
