Probably a bit late for this answer, sorry, but just read this post. I, too am taking hydrocodone amongst other pain relievers for problems I am having with my pregnancy. The doctors do say it is safe, but I understand how scary it is. This is my third pregnancy and I have had the same complications with each (kidneys and SEVERE pain). Just wanted to tell you that despite that I have two very healthy and beautiful children!! :oD They showed NO negative side effects from the medication I was on, and believe me, I was on a lot of it for an extended period of time :o( Just praying that the same holds true for this little one, I am now 23 weeks along and have just had a MISERABLE week of pain and medication. My doc even upped me to the 10/500 MG, so as worried as you are, try to relax, your baby should be fine :o) Hope you are better now!
No they said its going to take a while for me not to be in pain because they can not give me muscle relaxers. Im in so much pain and I am so scared to take the meds. We had an ultrasound done yesterday and we found out we are having a little girl. She is weighing in at 5 oz already and is bigger than what she is supposed to be at this time. So I am relaxed about her but still very scared about if there is any long term effects.
I hope this gets better for you, did they say the clot will go away? I have not had to take hydrocodone, but have taken codeine for back pain. It is incredibly scary to take anything, but I would think your doc knows best. Good luck!
