Taking Medication Vicodin

I had taken vicodin for pain a few times while pregnant in my first trimester. Now, I am concerned. Could I have harmed my developing baby and if so, how?

Make sure your doctors are aware of what you took and when. If they warrant it they will have special staff on standby waiting at your delivery incase there is a problem with the child. My guess is that if all tests have come back fine there will be no probs but make sure your docs are aware as it may mean they want to do an extra test or two. My doc told me today he wants me off all meds (I am on a strong med. due to chronic problems), my other doc said as long as i was off it by 2nd trimester i'd be ok. They just didnt want me to deliver if i was on it. (It's a pain killer). Also maybe try calling mothers risk health line at sick kids hospital toronto, they are really good for med questions.
