If you were my patient, I would advise you that whether or not you and your baby have withdrawl symptoms depends how long you have been taking the Percocet and how much you have been taking.  If you only took it for a few days while you passed a stone, there should be no problem.  IF you have been taking significant amounts for several weeks, you should ask your doctor how to taper and reduce symptoms for both of you.
Good luck!

Your baby won't withdraw from them. I suffered kidney stones with my first and had to have surgery at 25weeks to clean out my kidneys. I was on percs for two weeks afterwards.
I also have passed 4 stones in the last month and a half with this pregnancy. I opted out of the pain pills this time though. Im also due Dec 19th. I definitely won't make it to my due date.

yOur baby will be just fine! :) don't worry. Your not taking enough anyway for your baby to withdrawal from them. I had my surgery the end of June 2009 and my son was born the middle of Aug. I was also given oral pain medication a couple hours before i had him as well. I had severe preeclampsia and it was giving me a horrible migraine. I was given t3 and my son was taken by c section 4hrs later and he never went thru withdrawals.
