I am about four weeks pregnant and am still on suboxone bc my Medicaid hadn't come through for me to afford to get my subutex bc I had just picked up a months worth of suboxone the day before I found out I was pregnant. I should be able to pick up the subutex by the end of the week. Have a harmed my baby do you think??
You have probably not hurt the baby as it takes several weeks before the baby is interfaced with the mother's blood stream. Get the Subutex as soon as possible and you should be fine. Have you considered weaning off the medication while you are pregnant? Are you getting addiction's counseling while on the Suboxone/Subutex? Just a thought.
Best wishes and congrats on the little one,
Yes, I am going to taper bc I'm only on 1/2 strip a day abd was already beginning a taper. I have 20 month old twin boys who were born on methadone and although they did well at birth I really am happy that I won't have to go through al of that again. I havent been in counseling but now that I am pregnant again I have already contacted my counsiler that I used during my pregnanancy and after last time. Again have to wait for my Medicaid tho thanks so much for the response :)
