Hi Stephanie,

I am not in your situation but did find a bit of information for you. Here's a quote...

Hope this helps,

Neurontin is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether this medication will be harmful to an unborn baby. Do not take Neurontin without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. Neurontin passes into breast milk. Do not take this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
