That would depend.  Did your dr give them to you while knowing your pregnant.   usually they wont give out narcotics to pregnant women.  And if thy didnt then yes it could possibly get you in trouble because they drug test you at the ob dr office everytime you go in and if its an on going problem they call child protective services.     I hope it may of helped.  Im not sure which situation u are in.  Good luck.     The best thing to always do is let ur ob dr perscribe.

My ob prescribed dilodid po for me after I left the hospital for complex migraines causing paralysis. I'm 22wks preg.  Its not usually best to take narcotics while pregnant but if your ob feels that its best than trust your ob. They weigh the bad from the good and sometimes the slight risk is the better of two evils.  My ob said that narcotics are not good to take in the 3rd trimester due to risk of baby being born with an addiction.  But in my case she told me that my few months taking pain meds was safe for baby. Hope that helps... so if your ob says its OK then it is.

that depends on why you are taking them and if your physician knows and has a plan for you.

I hope they ok, I sprained my ankle the other day n I'm 26(almost 27) weeks n the Dr prescribed me lortab. So I'm assuming they are ok. But he told me it will just put the baby to sleep. So if u take it n the baby doesn't move for a few hrs it's cause he's sleep.
