quitting vicadon cold turkey while pregnant

I am currently 24 weeks pregnant. I have been taking 2 vicodin a day for about 2 months. I am not taking it anymore as of this AM but I have seen some posts that quitting cold turkey can be deadly to the baby. Does anyone know any information on this? I have not takena big dose or for an extreme long period of time but I am still not feeling the best. My OB does not know because he is not the prescribing dr so I am scared to tell him but I will if it is harmful to the baby. Can anyone give me any insight on this please. Thank You.

Hopefully since you were not taking a huge amount it wont be a problem. But you really need to ask your OB. Were you taking this for pain?

We don't know if it will harmful or not and have no way to tell. You NEED to tell your OBGYN. Do what is right for your unborn child. Please.

Let us know what happens.

Yes I was I have a infected cyst that has not gone away and has been cut into by the dr several times. Thank you all for the posts. Like I said before I was scared to say something to my OB as I don't want him to get mad or think bad of me however if this is not good for the baby I will definatlely tell him.

They will not think bad of you if you tell him the truth up front. It would be bad if you didn't and they found out.

That cyst sounds painful so take care of that and talk to him while you are there. I am sure everything will be okay but I am glad you are having it checked out!
