Hi Moms - I will tell my story before I get to the question. Almost 3 years ago I broke my ankle. Basically in a nutshell even though I am ashamed to say it, I got hooked on pain meds. I really really just fell into it, before my ankle broke I would have NEVER taken any kind of pain meds. Even after I had my daughter I refused pain meds for my severe cramping after I had her. I am now 5 weeks pregnant, and I am weaning myself off of Tramadol right now. I am having no problems, and I can't wait to be off! All other times I tried to quit I came up with any reason to stay on them because I didn't really want to stop. My baby inside of me is the most important thing, and I would want to die if I thought that I am hurting him/her while I am getting off of this crap. So my question is (fighting back tears right now) is Tramadol harmful to babies at this early stage (5 weeks pregnant)? Keep in mind I am weaning successfully, and I should be completely clean in a couple of weeks (shorter if it is harmful because I will go cold turkey immediately)
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.
