I just got out of the hospital for kidney stones. My doctor prescribed me percocet, and I'm 38 weeks pregnant. I took it for 2 days in the hospital and for 2 days at home. I passed the stone today thank God.....such a relief...so therefore I won't take that medication anymore....but i do not want my son born with a narcotic pain killer in his system. The ob assured me it would be fine and i've done some research and read that this particular medication should be out of me within 3-10 days.....is this the same for baby? should i be concerned? I'm 38 weeks and a half now...baby's due in 11 days.......Answer Question

I would think your baby didn't absorb as much of the drug as you did.... you'd have to find out the half life of the drug to be sure how long it will take before it leaves your system for sure though.
