I'm only 5 weeks along, so we'll be going through this together.
Tomorrow morning call your OB's office and make an appointment for your first prenatal visit. It probably won't be for a few weeks or so, but make sure you tell the scheduler that you are on Xanax and want to ask the doctor if it's ok to continue. He/she may want to talk to you on the phone or have you come in earlier.
And make sure you go out (tonight even!) and get some prenatal vitamins that have 800 mcg of folic acid and start taking one a day.
Thank You,,,,will Call First Thing And Want To Get In Asap..won't Take No For An Answer..i'm Assuming Since It's So Early That The Drug Didn't Do Anything But I'm A Nervous Wreck...and Im More Axnious Now And Don't Know Wehre I'll Be Without My Xanax.
Maybe We Can Keep In Touch..keep Each Other Posted. Is This Your First?
dont stress it! i had been drunk when i was pg(of course i had no idea i was!!)and she is a happy healthy 13 yr old now! i was also on antidepr. until i found out. our bodies filter things well and i think ull be fine.
Congrats to you on the pregnancy!! Definitely ask your doc. about medications, some are harmful, some arent but i highly doubt you harmed your baby by taking it. I was also drunk quite a few times before i found out i was pregnant. i know some ppl who did heavy drugs before they found out they were pregnant and all the babies were fine. I wouldnt worry if i were you!
please keep me posted. I'm dying to get pregnant, but I have been taking Klonopin (just like xanax) for 7 years and I am terrified about living without it for 9 months! I was just reading your posts in the other thread about how you're nervous about the pregnancy and not too excited yet. I was thinking that that's exactly how I am going to feel. let me know what happens and good luck!
