Well, today I went to my first appointment and I finally have some peace of mind. told the Dr. what I am taking, and how much, and this is what she told me. She said that many
pregnant women take these types of medications throughout their pregnancy, because they have
to. She also said that these meds do not
pass through the placenta and go through the baby. So therefore there are not physical abnormalities. She did also say there have been tests done on pregnant mothers who have taken these types of meds, and they show that some of the kids are ADD or ADHD, but they are not even sure of the medicine is the real reason why. She did say that if I continue to take this untill delivery, the baby will suffer from withdrawals, and since I know all to well what that is like, I would not dream of putting my little peanut through that. I have decided to wean myself down and eventually be off of them completely, not matter how much I hurt and need the meds. I have to do this for my baby. Now I can sleep better tonight, after all this worrying, and I hope this helps you guys out there feel better too!! By the way I am due on Christmas Eve!!!!
