I don't know what to do I didn't do any thing with my first two but now I an using oxycodone almost daily and sometimes adderall and I also have multiple sclerosis so ccasionally I take klonoin for muscle spasms oh and gabapentin for neuropothy. Is there any mommy's out there that have taken things like this during pregnancy? How is the baby now? I didn't take anything through the first trimester. Please help I am so.worried and scared.

You need to check yourself into treatment. You are aware that you are harming your child....that is the first step. Now you need to take action to fix it. If you continue you run the risk of not being able to parent this child and possibly your other children. If baby tests positive for drugs Child Protective Services steps in and then will not allow you to take the baby home from the hospital. So get treatment and get yourself better for this baby and your other children.

Im not quite sure, are you abusing these drugs? Does your doctor know about this?

To me it doesnt sound safe, if your dr doesnt know, even if you are abusing them, you need to tell them. And if you are worried and scared for that baby why are you taking them? If you are worried about it stop taking them. You shouldnt put that baby at risk. I know that some people had to take medication during their pregnancy and he doctor can help you switch to some that will be safe and not harm the baby if they are able to.
They also have methadone and soboxone clinics that will help pregnant mothers with drug issues to have a controlled dose of medication during their pregnancy so you dont over use or overdose.

I will pray for you, I really feel for your situation. I know many who have had addictions to medication and it is a very tough problem. Just know that you are not alone and if you just open up like you have on here there are people that will help you further and will be there for you when you need it. I hope that you believe in God, even if you dont, just pray. Pray that you have lost control and are afraid, that you need help, you need to be lifted up and given strength that you will stop the use of these drugs that are controlling you.
Remember you are strong, and nothing on this Earth can control you, as long as you just try and try. You will make it through. God bless Meagan
