I've been a CP for about 8yrs now. I started out on vicodine 500mg to norco to oxycotin20mg with percocet for bt pain now Im just on percocet. Im trying very hard for the babys sake to not take as many a day as Im perscribed, which is 6. But my fibro pain seems to be really acting up since I've gotten pregnant.
I know you naturally get tired a lot when pregnant Im exhausted, but I have an almost constant ache in my siactic nerve and legs. I also have back issues and broke my hip when I got hurt along with my tailbone.... I already feel misrable and Im not even that far along. I cant imagen what my 3rd tri is going to be like. Plus its right in the middle of summer.
I just need some support and tips to help me deal with this extra pain Im having. I feel guilty for taking narcotics while being pregnant. But I honestly can't help it. I havent told my PM dr, but my OB/GYN sent him a letter telling him I was pregnant. I talked very openly with her about my use of pain meds.She didnt like it, but told me it doesnt cause birth defects, just addiction. Which I plan going off them during my 3rd tri.
I feel bad thats how my PM dr had to find out. I wasnt trying to be dishonest. I have a history of miscarrying before the 1st tri is over. I was waiting to see if I made it to the 2nd to tell. The more people that know that is more you have to tell if a miscarriage happens.
I need some advice when I call my dr, what do I say? Its my right to tell when I feel comfortable, right?
