    Hi
    I'm 6+4 with my second! :cloud9:
    Was just wondering if anyone else relies on pain medication for medical conditions? Since finding out i have been expecting again I stopped all prescribed medication but struggling some days and was told I was ok to take paracetamol. I'm normally on stronger pain meds and anti inflamitries. I'm trying to manage with taking 2 paracetamol only per day but still worries me!

    Does anyone else have to take daily medication? X

    i am a severe chronic pain patient and my said paracetamol or tyl was ok and so was ibuprofen or advil i forget what its called by you..u take it as it says but not more then it says on the label. i took it ever 8 hours until my doc said stop at months....you need to stop because the baby has a whole in the heart that closes at 7 in half months and advil doesnt let it close..

    so know that it safe up until then too...

    sorry ur feel aweful

    sorry that is supposed to be stopped at 7 months but the 7 didnt come up in orginal post..

    I took two paracetamol tablets before sleep when I had a headache last week and ended up sleeping 12 hours straight.. Most deepest sleep I've had all pregnancy
