effects of tegretol when pregnant

i have read your question because i to take tegratol and am thinking about becoming pregnant (with my 4th child). i take 1800mg a day, i am not epileptic, i have a serious nerve problem in my whole face called trigeminal neuragia. i also have heard that it does terrible things to the feotus from my neurologist. Last january i became very poorly, it turned out that i had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, which had exploded and took my left fallopian tube, the consultant said another 2 hours and i would have been dead. Was this due to me taking tegratol, it makes me wonder. Now i am afraid to get pregnant and i CANNOT stop the tegratol. sorry i cannot help but all of the bloggs have given me food for thought, thank you.
