I was on methadone the last 4 months of my pregnancy. Everyone around me was telling me what a good decision that I was making and in my heart I feel it was, but now my daughter is having an extensive stay in the hospital and I am seeing other people that stayed on street drugs leaving the hospital WITH their babies in just a few days. My daughter is going on the 5th week on being at the hospital. It's also very frustrating because she is on 2 different meds, and they were uping the one medication when come to find out she needed more of the other... The "other" is the one that she can come home on and 2 weeks ago, before they made this mistake they were saying she was coming home the next week. It's just so frustrating that b/c of their mistake I am missing time with my newborn. I do not have maternity leave so it's also very hard for me to be at the hospital for long periods of time. I wish I could live their with her but I'm just not financially set like that.
