Post Herniated Disks in Neck and Pregnancy...need advice

I am a 31 year old female with herniated disks at C4/C5, C5/C6 and C7/T1 with a pinched nerve at C5/C6 and cyst on the C8 exiting nerve root. I equate this to years of an acitve lifestyle, involving extreme sports and injuries. My husband and I are looking to start a family and I wanted to know if pregnancy will make my neck worse? Currently I'm about 10-15 pounds overweight and have stopped exercising and lifting (as much as possible) due to neuro's orders. Daily symptoms are dull pain, weakness/tingling in right hand/fingers, and about a month ago I had sharp/shooting pain in shoulder blades and could not turn my head at all. The pain was unbearable. I have tried the pain killers, muscle relaxers, steroid pills, pt, massages, estem, traction but nothing seems to do the trick. Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated. Surgery is not really an option at this point as I feel I'm too young and the neuro said it does not always help. Thank you in advance for your thoughts and suggestions.
