I am just curious because many of them have warning labels on them about not getting preggo on some drugs.  I had a heart condition, caused by a virus when I was in my late 30s.  My doc warned me about not getting pregnant on them, and it was serious enough to affect the baby.  When I was pregnant with dd, I did not take any kind of presecription drug at all. I understand some may have to  if it is life threatening, but a comment I read on another threat got me thinking.  Could drug use(legal or not legal)be a cause of major issues/problems with our children?  I know there are way more prescription drugs now than ever before.

I took antibiotics and some kind of pain reliever for a uti. I also took Demerol for my gall bladder. All three of my kids are healthy.

I was put on a morphine pump in the hospital for kidney stones. Then I had a Percocet rx for treating the pain at home. Both my OB and Urologist told me it was safe to take. I had twins and they are perfectly healthy. It wasn't something I took everyday tho, just when I had a stone. I had three during my pregnancy. They are awful.

Yes. I have a chronic illness with organ involvement. My team of doctors worked together and I was on medication that did not cross the placenta.

Yup took my thyroid meds. But it was more dangerous for my kids if I didn't take them

I took antibiotics I believe during pregnancy?? I don't think there was anything else. But, my son did come out with problems, but they were more than likely random as it 99 percent of the time is. =/
