Antidepressants and pregnancy

Just want to know, I am currently taking Cipralex, an antidepressant but just for 4 months now after suffering from anxiety. I want to fall pregnant in the near future. What should I do, stop taking the anti-depressants gradually, I am not sure whether one can take it during pregnancy. Would it be wise to stop the medication now, after I have only been on it for 4 months now, will be anxiety be more likely to return?
