Help! During my 2 weeks pragnancy which I wasn't aware of, I was sick with cold & flue. I took four different types of medication (non prescription) including antibiatic for two weeks. I did some blood test & the results came out to be normal. I'm not sure if the baby is healthy or not. Does any one had the same or similar situation? If so, please help!

  • If there is somethig wrong with the baby your body will miscarry. My first pregnancy I got my wisdom teeth pulled, got put to sleep for the surgery and took vicodin for about 3 days. I miscarried the triplets. After that, I got pregnant again and didn't take any medication when I was trying to get pregnant. I of course didn't know I was pregnant the first time or I wouldn't hve gotten the procedure done. But everything happens for a reason. Your baby will be fine if u don't miscarry ok ;). I miscarried at around 6-8 weeks. Let me know how it goes ok. Best of luck to you ;)

  • At two weeks your baby should be fine. They say women drink at that early stage when they don't know they're pregnant and they say it's perfectly fine. The baby won't be affected by the alcohol. So I'm sure it's the same for anti-biotics, etc.

  • I did the same thing when I was pregnant with my first baby. I didn't know I was pregnant yet and assumed I had a cold. I took so much sudafed it was ridiculous, then I found out I was pregnant.

    I freaked out just like you're doing now. My tests came back normal as well and nine months later I had a perfect, healthy baby boy who is now a VERY active 2.5 year old.

    Try not to stress out too much about it. Your tests would have shown something if something was wrong or your body would have.
