Dilantin is definitely not safe to be taken during pregnancy. Dilantin contains phenytoin which will cause hydantoin syndrome and it should not be taken at all.
Please stop taking it and see a Doctor to assess the damage to the fetus. Your Doctor may advise you to abort the fetus if the damage is severe.
Wishing you the best.
