they gave my friend percocet when she was 7months pregnant. right before she had an emergency c-section because of her extremely high blood pressure. i guess they thought if the pain went away, her blood pressure may go down. idk... it cant be ruled out for birth defects... im sure it depends on how far along the woman is and the risk of the effects on the fetus.
