hi, I was just wandering, i have taken codiene and ibrofen during my pregnancy and im 20 weeks pregnant now and only just had my booking in, the midwife said that i should avoid ibrofen and aspirin and then when she said that i didn't dare tell her that i had been taking for major migranes that i get (even when not pregnant), can anyone help or advise whether i have done sonething terrible or will everything be ok, i am totally stressing now. Please help
Love gemma x

i was taking tramadol everday before i found out i was pregnant and was stresing about that but there is really nothing i can do anymore, i would definatly not take anymore ibrufoen and talk to your midwife but try not to worry, we can't turn back time and stress is no good for you
take care xx

I was prescribed codiene during my last pregnancy for bad hips and will probably get some this time too depending on hip pain. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Just don't take any more ibuprofen, it's not your fault that you've already taken them, you weren't to know if you hadn't had a booking in appointment.
How come you had such a late appointment? In m town you see your midwife between 8 and 10 weeks.

i know i remeber with my daugther i had booking in at 6 weeks and this 20 weeks bit strange but apparantley thats what they are doing now. i have read a couple of website to say that ibropfen is ok but just not in last trimester so i feel a little relieve now.
thanks a lot
