ur concern is good. but at this stage u need to careful regarding the drugs u are taking rather than worrying about epilepsy in child. There are more problems with the drugs which can cause birth deformities to child. drugs which are approved for pregnancy need to be taken.
Next Steps
consult ur nearest neurologist tell him about ur pregnancy plans and the drugs ur are taking immediately
