hello guys, I'd like to share my story and seek for advice as well from our experts here. I've been trying to conceive since May of 2010 but to no luck, I found out from my OB that I have polycistic ovaries and it will be really hard for me to conceive. I also had vasculitis and was advised to take steroids as cure. Come September, I've had consistent regular menstruation periods until January 2011. I didn't on February. Thinking that the irregularity of my periods came back, I didn't go to my OB. I was hospitalized last March 1-4, 2011, dx was reactive arthritis due to UTI, I couldn't walk at all! I took Etoricoxib (arcoxia) and tramadol as pain relievers almost everyday since I was discharged. But just a while ago... just 2 hours ago I decided to buy a pregnancy test because I remembered how I kept on urinating more than the usual for the past 3 weeks, I also feel nauseous and my heartbeat was faster than normal. I took the test, and being so used to having the negative result, I didn't anticipate... until two lines appeared. one line was fainter than the other. It happened before so I was not keeping my hopes up.. I bought two more pregnancy kits, different brands.. and both gave me two lines!! I am so happy that finally God gave me my heart's wish...
But I am also scared that the medications I took made an effect to my growing baby.. please advice.. I am really desperate.. and please can someone give me an idea of the do's and dont's for pregnant women.. thanks a lot!
