Take it easy Hope,
We are supposed to be here to support you and we will. No one knows how much pain you are in, plus trying to lower your meds or get off them, plus being pregnant ! I surely wouldnt want to be in your shoes right now ! Well maybe the baby part ;) Congratulations !
Listen to what your Doctor tells you. You could possible throw your body in shock, if he thinks its ok to wean for now and its not going to hurt the baby than by all means wean. If you have been off them for a couple of days and your dealing with it for the moment than good for you !
The worst thing about the vicodin is that the baby can get addicted to them and i know thats not what you want, but seven months is a long time for you to stop cold Turkey. I remembered when you didnt have them the last time, how upset you were. The anxiety is not good for you or your baby.
When you get to ob/gym ask him about the Tylenol 3 and save them for the really bad times, or just let them know about the fibro and perhaps there is a safe medicine you can take. When i was pregnant and i had the headache that had me in tears all the time, he gave me feurocet, (probably not spelling that correctly) and i was very nervous about taking them but it really would get unbearable at times. Work with your Doctor, try other things like warm baths, hot towels, put some candles burning in your bedroom, make it soft and glowing put on some music, and try to relax as much as you can.
Keep yourself calm right now, do the best you can with yourself, dont be hard on yourself til you get straightened out and you will. I have confidence in you Hope, just take it slow, come on the boards when things are getting rough and vent away. If your upsetting Kate than perhaps she should no longer read your thread because with everything on your mind, you dont need to feel anymore upset than you already do. Let me know what i can do for you Sweetie, i will be here for you, i promise but dont forget we all have bad days and you may have to wait a day or two, depending on whats going on here. Good luck for now, stay strong in your mind......;) sending you some buddies to hang out with you for now......:angel: :angel: :angel: :angel:
