Muscle Relaxer While Pregnant

I have slipped disc in my back from an old injury that is really bothering me right now. Typically when this happens I take a muscle relaxer (Flexeril) to ease the pain. Has anyone ever taken a muscle relaxer while pregnant with the Dr. permission. I don't see my Dr. again until Wednesday and I really hate to call on Fourth of July weekend. (I am 25 weeks pregnant)

I would call your Dr. it doesn't matter if it's a holiday. The Dr. is their for you.

I wouldn't. The baby's heart is a muscle and it's probably not that strong yet. Please don't take it without speaking to your doctor first. Your doctor can handle a 5 minute phone call.

Just wanted to update everyone on my muscle relaxer question. I just saw my Dr. today and he said I can take muscle relaxer while pregnant. Thank God.
