Neuropathy Nerve Damage in S1 nerve root and Pregnancy Experiences

My husband and I have recently started trying to conceive. I have worries about my leg pain during a pregnancy. I know I will have to go off of my meds. I currently take Gralise(a gabopentin), flexiril, and ultram. I am fine with that but I'm terrified of how I will feel pregnant. We really want children and I am trying to mentally prepare myself to handle whatever pain comes my way during the pregnancy. Has anyone with nerve damage and leg pain (all caused by a failed back surgery which led to scar tissue around my nerve root) went through pregnancy, and if so what were your experiences? What types of things did you do to relieve the pain?
