pregnant Deep sedation for surgery,/alcohol before i knew

Hi, I came here because I am concerned about my baby or the outcome that can happen after I did these things. I had gotten my appointment scheduled since September for my wisdom teeth to be removed on December 31st using deep sedation anesthesia. After the surgery I took Oxycodone as prescribed for pain. My period was due yesterday and took a pregnancy test; pretty relaxed as I thought it would be negative, but to my surprise it came out positive!
I don't know what to do?? Not to mention I drank for New Years... Is there a big chance the baby is affected

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

First of all congratulations! Your concern is natural. If you do not drink during pregnancy, the baby should be fine. Usually a single dental surgery a short use of oxycodone post that should not cause any problems in the baby. However, please inform your Obs and Gyn and the ultrasound specialist. They will be extra careful at your 18 weeks + ultrasounds to look for any problems and defects if any.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance. This reply to your query is just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit and treatment by a doctor who can examine you. Hope this helped you in making an informed decision about your health. Take care!
