seriously?! my friend is pregnant & she is taking them.
wouldn't that harm the baby?! she is 7 months along. idk if that matters or not. but i'd think it would hurt the baby becuase of the things that your not alowed to take while pregnant..



But what do i know... lol

Did her dr prescribe them to her? I'm sure there are some that would be okay.

I have fibromyalgia and arthritis, I stopped taking all those meds when I found out I was pregnant. Because a lot of them are deemed unsafe during pregnancy, I really hope she has told her doctor she is taking them to insure they are safe.

no she hasn't told her doctor.
i know that she has really bad back problems.
she had surgery on it awhile ago or something. so i know its not just to take them. but idk, she doesnt think she needs to talk to her doctor about it.

i have a messed up back and cant figure out whats wrong with it until i give birth and it became unbearable so my doctor prescribed them to me there low grade. i mean you shouldnt take them constantly but every once in awhile is okay as long as your OBGYN prescribed them i mean they wouldnt give you something that hurt the baby. there are way worse things people have done while pregnant with meth and all that but i see your concern, theres probably a good reason shes taking them

With those it is kind of like if the benefits outweigh the risks. Like anti-depressants while pregnant.

I think depending on the brand it would be ok.



At 7 months the major structures of the baby have formed already anyway. I took Vicodin my entire pregnancy and my LO is just fine. Sometimes you need to take it to be able to live (not like life or death, but I mean living your life in general)

I was that way with my first, but he still died. So I'm more relaxed now. It's not like I'm doing crack or anything. I've just let myself relax and try to enjoy life when I'm pregnant. It sucks enough as it is without adding more shit to it.

Actually it's easier to direct you to my about me. LOL Not because I can't talk about it, but because it's a lot to type out.
