will your baby will get fits or not that will come to know only after the arrival of the baby, but you should have consulted your neurologist and gynaecologist before you conceive i suppose. the drugs will have side effects on baby watch for that

you need a counselling thats pre conceptional counselling. i think you were taking tablets for fits, if you continue to take those tablets there can be some harm for the baby, its better to talk to a doctor and then go ahead.
