Just wondered if other mamas have had to do the same thing. I know Acetaminophen is known to be only generally safe pain med to take while pregnant but still concerns me in having to take it almost daily (prob 1000 to 3000 mg) for a month straight. I see my doc in a couple days but at current moment feeling paranoid.
Long story short I have been having strong headaches and tooth pain on my right side, that didn't begin until a month ago (I was about 32 weeks). A dentist saw I have two cavities up in there that are bad and can't be pulled until after baby just due to risks from anesthesia --though honestly I wish they had just took 'em out
I've had full dose of antibiotics, my OB approved me some Tylenol 3 with codeine. For the last month I have been taking those, but the thought of codeine has been making me paranoid enough and instead taking plain Xtra strength Tylenol (1000 mg per dose). I have never been one to take any meds for THIS long let alone while pregnant... the pain just does not quit and it's awful sometimes-- normally when I need to sleep
