I messed up. I just found out I was pregnant last nite. Not sure how far yet. I'm worried b/c in the past month, the doctor had me on pain pills for my back, before I was pregnant, and I have been taking them. They are very strong, and i'm scared it will effect the baby. If i'm only about 3wks, do u think the baby is still ok?

You should be fine if you end it now. Go to a doc and ask them about it. For now just put maybe a hot towel on your back for pain. But no more pills. Make an appointment for a checkup though. Good luck

oh yeah, welcome to the forum!

I'm sure the baby is fine. In fact people with severe disabilities or other chronic disorder who are on strong medication throughout their pregnancy just have to worry about the baby after it's born due to withdrawl symptoms. I would just suggest stopping them, unless thats not possible and making an appt with your obgyn
