Thanks for the info. I know that the reason doctors tell you not to take meds during pregnancy is b/c most haven't been tested for their safety. I mean, come on, lets face it, who wants to offer up their baby for experimentation right? My docotor made a very good point though. She told me that if mom is in distress from the pain then that will put more stress on the baby and can lead to complications. I know that I'm certainly not the first to ever take these meds during pregnancy but I do want to ehar other people's experiences with it. One of my sister's friends has some pretty serious chronic pain issues so she is going to call me so I can talk to her a little bit also. I just need some reassurance I think. She got told by her pain doc (who went on and on and on) that her OB/GYN was a complete moron for letting her take those meds during pregnancy then he prescribed her Naproxen of all things....something that is KNOWN to cause miscarriage, and he gave it to someone who was already high risk, thankfully her pharmacist wouldn't fill it and sent her back to her OB/GYN.
