I think I'm pregnant and I go to the methadone clinic..
I am 29 and I have 3 kids ages 9, 7 & 1, I also happen to be in recovery from pain pills. I've been going to the clinic since I found out I was pregnant with my youngest and my primary referred me to a ob who specializes in methadone and pregnancy. By the grace of God my dd was born perfectly healthy and without any withdrawals. I swore I would never put my baby through that again.
I've been doing amazing in my recovery decreasing my dose every week. I was scheduled to be done in early February but if they find out I'm pregnant they won't let me go down on my dose. My df and I are considering abortion and I'm not sure how I will handle that but I know I don't want to risk my baby being born and suffering because of something I did. I also don't know if my body is capable of another exhausting pregnancy and a fourth cesarean. Plus I feel like it would be unfair to my kids to have another baby in the house, we barely survived our last baby's colic!!
I don't know how the he'll we could be so stupid. We've been so careful because we didn't want to end up here. One night, one mistake, one second too late
