So I have cardiac issues... and it'a a long story but basically.... the other day I ended up in the ER w/ severe chest pain. The pain took my breath away it was so bad and I was so scared. They did every test they could do.... but the issues I have aren't going to show up with an EKG.... they would need to do an MRI or a CT scan and they can't b/c I'm pregnant. ANYWAY.... they called my OB to see what they could give me for pain and they said that he said that I could have dilauded while I was there and vicodin for at home. I asked if both of those were safe for the baby and they said that the OB said it's fine. Has anyone ever heard of this? I mean... I suppose there MUST be times when a pregnant woman would have to have pain relief but it just seems unsafe. I am not planning on taking vicodin once this prescription runs out and hopefully I will not ever need to... but if God forbid this happens again what do I do? I'm just so confused and conflicted about this. It just doesn't seem right to be taking a narcotic when you're pregnant!
