Hi I just found an old post about valium and pregnancy. I am currently pregnant and had to taper down from 20 mg of valium to 5mg and I am kind of stuck there at nearly 8 weeks pregnant. I have anxiety and chronic pain so tapering off of my meds is stressful. the dr said it is category d so I need to taper quickly...so now I worry a lot about my baby. Your post was encouraging because your babies were healthy. do you mind if I ask how many mgs and how often you took it during your pregnancies? thank you! I read so much about how meds can effect the babies thruout pregnancy & esp in the first trimester so I am so concerned. thanks for your advice!!
