I do not feel addicted in anyway! I think reading posts on the net scared me... then I found a thread that they would test the babies first bowel movement and take him from me (which is not gonna happen cause it was prescribed) but I still freakin out!
Trying to make myself feel better about my hydrocodone use during the last 7 weeks... (prescribed!?
Added 6 Sep 2011:
trying to make myself feel better about my hydrocodone use during the last 7 weeks... (prescribed!) I feel as though I should have been able to deal with the excrusiating pubic symphasis pain on my own for the benefit of my unborn son! I took 1or 2 5/500 hydrocodones a day to deal with the pain SOMETIMES I got up to 3 or 4 on really bad days! I sometimes would only take tylenol and not take any hydros for 2 to 4 days at a time as well... I completley stopped taking pills about 4 days ago and will NOT take another during this pregnancy( i'm currently 36 weeks and 2 days) and the doctor wants to strip my membranes on monday the 12th( 37 weeks 3 days) I know this doesn't always bring on labor but if it does what are the chances the baby will have withdrawl symptoms... I myself had a few moodswings and restless legs for the first 2 days... but that could be pregnancy related....Anything on the subject would be appreciated!!!!! Sorry i posted question in the wrong area and got cut off....
I had some pain issues my last pregnancy and I took prescribed hydrocodone (prescribed by my OB) about the same as you. 1-2 a day maybe up to 3-4 on a bad day. My child is fine. No withdrawals or any problems at all after his birth. He is almost 17 now. I worried and worried too. After his ultrasound and I knew his little body was developed normally, I worried about his mind whether or not he would be mentally handicapped but he is a smart as a tack!! I think your baby will be fine. It sounds like you did as you were supposed too and stayed pretty judicial in your use and tried other measures first. I had a lot of the same kind of pain and my husband used to come up behind me and put his arms around me under my baby bump and lift the weight of the baby off my pubic bone and oh!! that felt soooo good! I swear, I would never have made it through that pregnancy if it wasnt for knowing it was going to be the last. Good luck and all the best for you! You are in the home stretch and it wont be long now!
