I am 24 weeks pregnant. I took prescribed vicodin in my first trimester while I did not know I was pregnant. My first OB visit while pregnant was at the end of my third month. I notified her that I was taken vicodin and she said it was not a problem. She also told me not to continue to take vicodin. Some days I would not take any and some days I would take one or two depending on the pain. I quit cold turkey about two weeks ago. I was crying every time I took it because I was in so much pain and I did not know what I was doing to my unborn child. I have read all of these stories about quitting cold turkey, but I feel great. At my last doctors visit a week ago she notified me that the baby was ready to come. I did not blame it on my vicodin use because my daughter was born at 33 weeks, I took nothing but tylenol while pregnant with her and she was premature, small, but very healthy. I am currently on bed rest and I see the doctor once a week, to be safe. My question is does anybody think me stopping the vicodin cold turkey and the potential of a premature baby are related? And is it safe to stop taking vicodin cold turkey I've been taking it on and off for the last two years.
