Hey J Rene, long time no see or hear from you, lol. Wow, and now you are pregnant, congrats to you.
I don't remember what meds you are on, do you mind posting them here at the forum? I do know many women along with the help of their drs working together have taken certain pain meds during the pregnancy and yes the babies were born dependant on these meds. But, with that said the drs knew what to expect and knew how to deal with this. Its a choice only you can make as to whether you want to continue taking medication or going off of them totally. Did your dr have any suggestions for you at all? I would have thought he/she would have sat down with you and discussed this. Might be time to see another dr for a second opinion. If you decide to do this, I would not let much time go by, I would do this as soon as possible. In all honesty your dr should have addressed this with you on the first appt.
Please let us know how you are doing and don't be such a stranger. Again congrats and good luck.
