Electrical Stimulation and Pregnancy

I am not pregnant right now, but working on it. I am in physical therapy 4-5 days a week for post-operative care after a shoulder injury. I had the initial surgery last year. I was pregnant in December of last year(2006) and miscarried in March of this year. We don't know why the miscarriage happened. I was receiving e-stim for PT during the time that I was pregnant. Is it ok for me to continue e-stim if I get pregnant again? My ob/gyn and my surgeon say that they have not encountered this and are not sure.
