anonymousangelfish - November 4

I've been taking a few different kinds of medications and I just found out today that I am pregnant. I was supposed to get my period last week (I think) but can't be sure. I'm a little worried about how my lifestyle over the last few weeks will affect the baby. I am taking muscle relaxers and anti-depressants and also smoke marijuana occasionally. Can someone please tell me if they have had similar situations or have advice? i'm going to see the doctor, but i'd like to hear from some other expecting moms as well. thanks.

Well, it does no good to worry over it now. Whats done is done, and if you are this early into the pregnancy, chances are things are fine. Many women do many things before they find out they are pregnant and go on to have perfectly healthy babies. Just be sure and stop all these things now that you know and take good care of your body & your baby =). If you have any further questions or need more rea__surance, talk to your doctor. About the marijuana, I have known people who smoked it occasionally in pregnancy (not that I advocate smoking anything in pregnancy) that went on to have healthy babies. The only real known a__sociated risk would be similar to that of smoking cigarettes, and only when in similar amounts (low birth weight, problems breathing during labor & delivery, etc). I'm sure everything is fine. Talk to your doc about your prescriptions, and cut out the weed, and baby will be fine =). GL! Happy & Healthy 9 months to you!
