Yesterday they gave Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen 365mg tablets for pain.
I don’t like taking medications while pregnant, anything could happen to Zoie-Lynne with taking them, she’s still growing. While at work today I was in some serious pain, so I decided to look up if I could actually take it while being pregnant. Yes I know they wouldn’t give it to me if it wasn’t safe, but I still wanted to make sure it was safe.
In my research they had found that the only issues with the drug while pregnant was that if you took to many the baby would become addicted to the medication and at birth the baby would need to be weaned off of the drug. While doing lab tests on animals they found cranial-related birth defects in hamsters, only with large doses.
I decided to take the pill, but only 1/2 a pill, just to be on the safe side. I probably will not take another one unless I REALLY need it this weekend. Hopefully with bed rest & some heat I will be fine.
I took the pill around 12:30pm and it is now 3:36pm and I am sitting at work falling asleep, so I will not be taking it if I need to do anything. I only took half, so I could only imagine if I took the whole thing!!! At least my back has stopped hurting, but I don’t think it’s really worth it. I think I can just deal with the pain & Zoie-Lynne be okay.
