I have no experience with Abilify and pregnancy. I do know from long experience, that few if any drug companies will advise that their drug IS safe to take in pregnancy, even if there is no significant evidence of serious problems --- because they wouldn't want to be held liable if there were problems. Lithium I would be cautious about using, but wouldn't rule it out. One of the issues is to weigh up the small risks from some drugs ( ruling out a few drugs where the risks are always unacceptably high ) against the equally real risks of untreated illness such as serious bipolar problems, which can itself be a problem for the foetus.
I think, because he ought to know enough about you and your condition AND the risks of the drugs he prescribes, you should urgently discuss this in detail with the prescribing shrink ; and also ask for a second upinion from a second shrink, to get this clear, and make a wise decision, in the best interests of yourself and your child
