I have just found out that Im pregnant again...Im about 6 weeks along

and before I knew I was preg I had some lower back xrays done because of a car accident, Ive also been put on percocet 7.5 twice daily. Like I said, I didnt know yet.....I also take anti anxeity medication called citalopram 20 mg a day. I have ceased taking anything at all now untill I go for my first OB appt next week, but I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar situation....I know ppl are going to say " women do alot of things before they find out they are preg and their babies are just fine" I know that. but they are not Im just asking for some personal experiences here. Thanks!

  • I was in a car wreck a week before I found out I was pregnant with one of my kids, had x-rays of my hip, and was on a muscle relaxer (dont remember which one) and a pain killer for the time before I found out. My Dr wasn't concerned, just said to stop taking the meds. I do know that some are ok for pregnancy, but you can probaly call your Dr even before your apt, and just ask if the Percocets and anxiety meds are okay. GL

  • I was drinking and smoking before I found out. Even got a tattoo! I was mortified when I found out cause I knew the things I had done. I stopped smoking that day and didn't drink or take anymore meds. I also would rarely eat and when I did it was junk. My poor baby for those first 5 weeks:( But the day I found out I started eatin right and doing everything right. I had a healthy 8lb baby and went full term. She is developmentally fine crawled at 5 mon and walked at 9 months. She is perfectly healthy:) She is 2 now. I would guess you'll be fine. GL and lets hope all is well:)

  • never had a personal experience but aren't they supposed to make sure you aren't pregnant before they give you x rays?
