Well you can't take back things you've done so theres no point worrying about it IMO. I smoked and drank through the first 7 weeks of my pregnancy (stopped the minute I found out obvs) and everything is fine over here. You could have done a LOT worse.
As the other girls ahve said, it's really unlikely it'll have done any damage. And to back up comeones earlier point, Ive been told to take ibuprofen once as well because I have bad joints in my knees and ankles.
Hm, I sure hope it's okay! I must've taken about 8 to 10 ibuprofen before I found out I was pregnant and that you can't take them, I'm pretty sure my son is fine though so I don't know why your LO wouldn't be!
My MW told me that if you take it over a 24 hour period, say 2 pill every 4 hours, it can lower the platlet count in your blood, and that is where the problem is caused. So taking 2 over a 2 week period is not going to cause a problem. There has been twice she has told me to take ibeprofin to help reduce swelling as it is a great anti-inflamitory, but only for a 12 hour period. My baby is just fine!
Thats what I don't get. People take it as a painkiller... it isn't a painkiller, it is an anti-inflamitory!!! I have boxes in my cuboard because of my arthritis. But I refuse to take it when not pregnant because they have found it may cause heart attacks later in life!!
I Was complaining of headaches to my dr and he told me to take motrin 800mg to get rid of it. he said was fine in the first 2 trimesters they just didn't advise in the third due to clotting issues. Although some women are given baby aspirin to actually lower the platelets while pregnant for certain disorders. It doesnt actually harm the baby.
