Those are good questions to ask your OBGYN. Having said that, I would not stop taking the without her knowledge and consent. Your Dr. prescribed them and she/he will be able to help you decide when and if you should take them, etc. I am sure your sister has only the best wishes for you, but she needs to butt out. IMHO! :) I am sure others will be by to comment, just wanted to let you know there are real people here and we do care. Congrats on your pregnancy.
I try talking to my OB and everytime i do he kind of brushes it off like its no big deal and that she will be just fine.. but in the back of my mind i know her chances of being addicted are high unless i stop.. thank you so much for replying to me it means alot!♡
Thank you so much atthebeach yes my ob is the one who gives them to me, i am on 40 mg a day sometimes less ( just depends on the day) i haven't tried to take them with otc medicine but I will try! Maybe that way i can lower what i am taking per day even more! I want to be completely off of them by the time im 28 weeks.. im just nervous i won't be able to ( before i was pregnant i was on something stronger when i got pregnant i stop taking it and my ob freaked out when he found out and put me on the Percocet) but my goal is to be completely off by 28 weeks or only be taking like one a day so that my daughter chances of being addicted go down.. if thats even how it works.. the pain is terrible but i think it will be more of a mental thing for me.. its almost habit at this point.. get up take one ( so i can function) middle of day take one ( to keep the pain away) around 7 take another then at night take one to sleep... so i think that will be the hardest part..
Your OB is prescribing the pain meds so CPS wont be taking your baby. It is when their are surprises at birth and the mother hasnt been truthful. Whatever you do please dont just stop taking them as the baby feels everything you do and then some. Many times our pain actually does increase the longer we take the pain meds. It is a game our brain plays with us. You are taking good care of that baby girl so try and relax. Let us know how you are doing~
