8wks PREGNANT and on METHADONE!

I did not plan to get pregnant. But what a blessing babies are so of course I am very concerned because I am on Methadone. I have been tapering off 10-15 mg/month. I am on 60 mg and I just started tapering a month ago.
I have had no severe withdrawals while tapering down so should I continue. Clinics seem to always want you to stay on because they make money off of you. I think If I'm not having problems, it will be fine for the baby...?
I just don't want my baby to have to be put through withdrawals because of me being on Methadone. My baby deserves better! But I keep hearing about miscarriage if I taper off...? Someone Help Me!!!
