Hello ladies, I just found out i was 4 weeks pregnant and well im absolutly stoked! this isnt my first pregnancy butits been a very long while, you see i have a 6 yr old daughter. Well a couple of days  before i found out i was pregnant i had gotten very sick i had alot of congestion and sinus pressure so i took Advil allergy and congestion. I recently read that it contained Pseudoephedrine, well i took it for i wanna say 3 days and before that i took theraflu tea and some other allergy and cold meds, and then to top it off! i want to say like 2 weeks before that i had a bad yeast infection and bought the monistat 7 day treatment, it just wasnt a good month for me, but now that i find out im pregnant im definetly worried :( Does anyone have any info on how this might affect me and my baby, i would greatly appreciate it.

FIrst of all Congrats!!!!... If you are that concerned I would get a hold of your DR.. and let them know how sick you were and at the time you didn't know your were pregnant.. I don't think they will tell you anything over the phone.. but maybe just a visit to the office and tell them you just have a question that you are worried about taking the medications.. GOOD LUCK!!!

Idk sorry but definitely talk to your doctor about it. There's really nothing you can do though, I wouldn't stress. Just enjoy your pregnancy.

Stress is not healthy for you or the baby.. I think talking to your DR will ease your mind...

Congratulations!  That is exciting.  My dd's were born 9 years apart, so I understand that part of it. 

I think your baby will be just fine, but if you need reassurance talk to your doctor.  As long as you are doing everything you can do to stay healthy and happy now that you know, everything should be just fine.

I agree on contacting your dr if you need the reassurance. That said I'm sure baby is just fine. :)

Congrats!

Grats!

Talk to your doctor.

But honestly, that early in pregnancy it probably didn't do anything to baby at all.
