Resection Surgery tomorrow..just found out I'm pregnant!

After 6 months of wearing an ileostomy bag, I am finally having my small bowel rejoined tomorrow morning.I missed a period last week, took a test today and lo and behold, I am pregnant. I must only be by a few weeks gone!I am not going to tell the surgeons as if i do, they probably wont operate on me. I am so scared for this surgery but have been looking forward to this for months. Theres no way anything will stop me from having it.What are your thoughts?

The docs need to know since a pregnant body behaves different medically than a non pregnant body
If something comes up during surgery you want the docs to have the right medical information so they can know what to look for and how to proceed
