Please help me :/

I could use some help. I'm currently 35 weeks pregnant an have been clean an sober my whole pregnancy until a week ago when I stumbled upon some dilauded. And I have been taking them for 5 days. I am so ashamed of myslef and scared of what I've done To my baby :/ I am no longer taking them and I'm attending meetings. But I need to know what to expect. Will that 5 days of taking them hurt her? Will she withdrawal? Will the drugs be detected and will she be taken from me :( my heart is breaking just thinking if this. I'm realy not a terrible person I love this little baby with everything in me! Please help me.

It's rated as a Category C drug. It's unknown whether it will cause any harm to the child. It's doubtful that it will do anything to the child since you only took them for a sort time. It might be something wise to bring up to your doctor however so they can keep watch out in-case anything happens. They would be best to advise you on what to expect, if anything.

It's also good that you're getting yourself help. You definitely don't want to have addiction problems after your child is born, and risk what might happen to her after. Mistakes happen, what's important is that you learn from them. I wish you luck!!!

I'm so sorry I know it is disgusting! And it's terrible that I have let my addiction get the best of me once again! I thought I had it under control and I obviously do not! I do not blame you one bit for this disgusting you because it disgusts me also. Im so upset with myself and id do anythingto take this back. But I can't so now I must move forward. I wish you luck in conceiving!
I'm going to bring it up with my obgyn on Thursday so I can maybe have some peace of mind as to why will happen with my baby. I do not want her taken from me for this huge mistake. I'm just so terrified that I may have ruined everything :/

If you only took them for 5 days they will be out of your system in 3 days. Even if you tell your obgyn that you took them they wont take the baby away unless they are in your system when you give birth. What concerns me is that you did it in the first place... considering you are about to have a baby you shouldn't be doing or contemplating doing drugs at all. It just leads me to believe you'll do them again once you have the baby and that is not OK to subject your child to.

i agree, there well our of ur system but will u be able to continu to have this willpower wants the child is born, i was pregnant an while sitting in a pub for a going away party i desided to drink a guiness as its ment 2 be good for iron for ur child, after an hr in the pub still drinking the same drink i got a pain an began 2 bleed, i blamed myself for along time, wishing i didnt have that 1 drink, i lost my baby that nite, but u have a chance 2 change it, u made a mistake that im sure hasnt harmed ur baby at all but u need 2 make sure u dont make it again even when ur baby is born, dont stress urself out and think of baby names instead, its obvious u regret what uv done and uv stoped doing it in time so that it hasnt caused damage to ur baby, stay strong x

I'm so sorry u went thru that. Wow I feel terrible. Ugh I wish u could take it back. I just wana be the best mommy I can be to her. Her movements still seem healthy so I'm hopeful. I'm just scared the drug will be detected once she is born and they do the drug screening on newborns. I'm not sure how that works but it is going to beon my mind till the day she is here. I don't want her taken from me :/

It's only under certain conditions they take the child. If you're upfront and honest NOW it's highly doubtful it will happen. You're more likely to have that happen though if you do NOT tell you're doctor what's going on. They want to work with you. They don't want to take the child away from the mother if it can be helped. Stop beating yourself up so much. You can not change the past, and dwelling endlessly over it will only cause you more stress which is just as bad for baby. Take it as a lesson and work toward a new goal of getting yourself clean for your own sake and your baby's. She needs her mother there, and all of her. Not half, or a drug induced mommy.
