  • I think you should be ok as long as you have stopped. Please make sure you see an ob and take prenatal meds and eat healthy. All should be fine.

  • It would depend on what kind of pills. For example, Tylenol is fine to take but Vicodin can be harmful (you can call to find out what is and is not okay). When you go to your appointment with your doctor/midwife let them know what you have been taking. However, most likely your baby will be fine.

  • I was smoking pot, cigarettes, taking pills and drinking, then I found out I was 8 weeks pregnant. I stopped as soon as I found out, my children are fine. The doctor also prescribed me Loratab 10.g for the last month of my pregnancy for my back problems, since I was tiny and carrying triplets.

  • you mean birth control pills?

    As long as you stop right now, the baby should be okay.
