Pregnant with spondylolisthesis grade 1 at L5 and S1

Hello everyone! When I was 14 I was diagnosed with grade 1 spondylolisthesis at L5 and S1. I am now 23 and just found out that I am 8 weeks pregnant. My husband and I are thrilled but I am concerned about how my condition may affect my ability to have a natural childbirth,  carry the child without additional slippage,  and about being able to pick my child up as he/she grows.  Does anyone here with spondylolisthesis have children? If so,  did pregnancy and childbirth cause slippage or pain? Were you able to pick you child up without pain as he or she grew? Thanks so much in advance, any advice or information is much appreciated!
