Re: JUst tested positive TOnight...was on xanax!

Congratulations! Yay!

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.

Re: JUst tested positive TOnight...was on xanax!

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!

Re: JUst tested positive TOnight...was on xanax!

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!

Re: JUst tested positive TOnight...was on xanax!

mainly hip hop, but i did a lot of ballet too for technique and balance.

are you feeling any better? you may want to try yoga, it has done wonders for my anxiety and i heard it helps with the labor and delivery too!
