  • My doctor gives a pamphlet of drugs he allows. Another great place to check is Safe Fetus


    Mine allows - Tylenol, cough drops, sudafed, benadryl, robitussin, mylanta, tums... thats pretty well it.  Short list.

  • I think we know to talk to the doc first :) but for fun what can we take or do that you heard is not safe but ends up being alright when you ask the doc?

  • I know everyone is thinking take, but I will give you my list of DO'S :)
    *I can sled (found out today that I still love it!)
    *I can make meals for my family everyday, even though sometimes it sucks
    *I can do things that people tell me I can't! (mostly things like carrying my son, picking up stuff, and working on car)
    and the biggest DO or CAN:
    *I can have a baby! Isn't that just amazing?! :)

    Sorry I couldn't resist my silly list. I am having such a great day! I love it when it snows!

    =you can take zantac, and believe me i did!! 150 mg, every day!! heartburn was hell!
    =you can eat fish, just limit the qty.
    =you can work until you are 9 mos preggers, unless your doc says otherwise
    =you can make others get you stuff, because your feet have swollen to 2x's the size!
