Again, I take a narcotic prescription for migraines during pregnancy, and I truly need them or I'd be unable to function or supervise my daughter. I have passed out from the pain of migraines and woken up on the bathroom floor, not knowing how long I was out or what my daughter had been up to while I was out. I understand that taking any medication during pregnancy isn't without risk, but cocaine is proven to be extremely dangerous and the medicine I'm taking isn't anywhere in the same boat as that. I'm finding much of this thread to be dismissive of those of us who really do need medication to help us with serious problems during pregnancy.
I did not mean to offend you in any way or to belittle your painful experience.
If you need it, and are making an informed choice, by all means take it. I had the luxury of someone to care for my DS while I had the migranes and just suffered through them. BUT I also had 2 epidurals (and while I don't have time to do the notations), the epi's were probably more of a threat to my babies than a few puffs of MJ.
