38 wks and wanna stop pain meds

I have been on pain meds (percocet) since a month before I conceived. I was in the process of finding out what was wrong with my back after a car accident. The 2 bulging discs and left ARM nerve damage was already found. I was also on q muscle relaxer and NSAiD while also attending physical therapy. Of course once I found out i was pregnant my ortho doc said basically he couldn't touch me anymore. I told my OB the meds I was on and they told me to stop all but the percocet. I was told to try not to use it daily. My primary doctor began to write my scripts with my OB writing it maybe 2-3x when I hadn't seen my primary. That brings me to now. At 30 wks I was put in bed rest for "preterm labor. Dilated 2cm. Of course being In bed that much caused an increase in my back pain n additional pains. I have been taking it now 3-4x a day. Just recently I felt the baby will be here soon time to cut back. I'm now 38 wks so off of bedrest. Well I'm having a very hard time decreasing. I feel terrible and am in constant pain. What do I do? I dont want my baby to be born addicted. I also haven't really mentioned to my doc that I have been taking daily several times a day although my script does say that as needed. What can I do? Is it safe to just stop? If I stopped cold turkey today which will be very very difficult would the baby test positive and or go through withdrawal? Is that what I am experiencing when trying to stop? I feel like I've just been trapped in something just recently. It wad never like this before. Any help especially from someone who has been here personally would be great. Thx!
