I am sorry that you are scared but if you are ready for your life to change for the better then that is great. just imo the best thing to do now if find a doctor and let him know of the problems, they will help you especially if you r preg. Certin things like going cold turkey are not recommended if you are pregnant. Your doctor can help you come up with a taper plan that is safe for you and the baby. I wish you the best of luck and let us know how things go :)

The doctor won't turn you in-I've been there. I always kept a script bottle with my name on it close to me though because I lived in fear like you...if you are worried about the vicodin harming your unborn child, put your mind at ease . I was prescribed vicodin while pregnant for a kidney stone. But that isn't a free pass to keep going at the rate you are. Go to the doctor and tell him/her what is going on so they can help you and the baby. You will feel so much better with help in place. Get your life back before the baby comes.

HI.....from the date of your first post I can see this has been an ongoing problem
you need to tell your obgyn right away there is a chance they can still detox you safely b/4 your any farther along it will be up to the doctor DONT DETOX ON YOUR OWN YOU COULD RISK YOUR BABYS HEALTH the doctors will know what to do please seek professional help where all about home detoxes but when your prego that changes everything good luck and God bless......Gnarly
