Unfortunately there are no studies to verify the effects of Abilify on human development only animal studies. You must weigh the benefits of the medication against the possible risks to the fetus. It is best if you discuss this with the obstetrician and the prescribing doctor as they can help you weigh the benefits against the risks. The prescribing doctor should be able to recommend alternatives to the Abilify that will have less possible effect on the baby.
May I ask what your condition is for taking the Abilify? I take it as an adjunct to my antidepressant and if I was pregnant I would probably try to do without, but that is just me. Please discuss with the prescribing doctor before making a decision.

Guys I'm more in love with Abilify everyday. The company replied and I'm so happy these people have this respect to their consumer.
They told me that in 6 cases, 5 cases gave birth to perfectly normal babies, while one case was abnormal, but that was on a high dosage, and mine is only 10 mg. I find this ratio really relieving, and only now that I'm purely happy with my pregnancy and happy and convinced with my lovely medication. :):)
Thank you guys for your support, I needed it so much. Just wish me a safe pregnancy and delivery the same way you wish any normal woman!!! :):):)

I am in the same boat, I just found out I am 2 months pregnant and have been taking 15 mg Abilify the whole time... My OB/GYN, who I am not confident with said I should remain on it, while my new psychiatrist told me it is very dangerous for the fetus and put me on halidol which is much safer. I took Halidol during my first pregnancy and she is fine. I am going tomorrow for a sonogram to see if the fetus is ok, if not, I certainly will have an abortion. Hope this helps.
