Avatar m tn s are VERY mild this time around! I was really expecting to go to hell and back with this fentanyl withdrawal but so far it has been 10x easier than my oxy withdrawals I went through last year. Anyone have any theories why my w/d this time around has not been nearly as bad as last time? I have been dependent for about 4 months this time around, using mainly oxy/dilaudid/fentanyl but I havent had oxy in awhile mainly just fentanyl and dilaudid.
1901977 tn?1333991726 The OB nurses will help you position and help you stay still also. Don't worry you'll be fine, I know you will be able to sit thru it. I haven't had an epidural for childbirth but I've had them several different times and was able to pull thur it. Wishing you a healthy baby !
Avatar n tn How to prepare for Labour and childbirth mentally and physically before planning pregnancy. Is it possible to have smooth delivery without any stitches. How to make this process enjoyful than fearful.
1900462 tn?1352775302 Or really starting to make sure your ready to bring the baby home? I ask because im 21+3 weeks and me and my boyfriend still dont have our own place and are still living with his grandma. I want to have a homebirth but her house is NOT sanitary enough to have a baby in. So we need our own place before baby comes. Anyways im thinking that 30weeks would be an ok time to move out if we dont have a place of our own yet. What do you think?
Avatar n tn m due to have my second child at Christmas time and I am not pleased with what many are saying about childbirth the second time around! My husband and I are moving with our son into our first home this weekend- very stressful- and I was hoping to read that it's a breeze! wishful thinking, I know, but holy cow! I was induced the first time. My labor was long and painful, I've got my fingers crossed for an easier labor this time!
Avatar f tn I'm scared of childbirth. I am 37 weeks 4 days.I went to the doctors today and he said I'm 1 cm dialated and 75% effaced. This week or next the doctor thinks my baby girl will be here . I went to the childbirth class Sunday, it made me realize what to expect, but I know it will hurt. Any suggestions. Btw I'm getting an epidural.
Avatar f tn I too said I didn't want children because of the pain but after me and my husband married in October, all I could think about was producing a child for us. Someone who would depend on us and bring us joy. I'm 13w2d now and I am terrified at the thought of childbirth but I don't let that fear consume me. If I carry this baby for 9+ months, surely 1 day or less of labor won't kill me. I'm just excited to see my baby in December!
Avatar f tn I'm not scared of childbirth as much as I am of being a mom for the first time. I know it's gona hurt, like that's a given lol. I wana try to go natural no pain meds, but I'm a baby when it comes to pain so idk how that will work. But our bodies are made for childbirth , if we couldn't handle it we wouldn't be able to have multiple children.
Avatar f tn True Bennett, There is more fentanyl than you think after the 72 hrs schedule. I would know- I have been on fentanyl off and on for years.
Avatar n tn There are many risks in being an insulin dependant diabetic and getting pregnant but many women do it and have healthy babies (me being one!) Studies have shown that effective control of diabetes during the periconceptional period (refers to the period of time three months before pregnancy through the first three months of pregnancy) in women with diabetes reduces the risk for birth defects in their children.
456039 tn?1302660148 I'm not actually pregnant yet, but I have IST, and have had two ablations and a pacemaker implanted for it. My gyn is already planning on a C-section, just to be on the safe side. What type of arrythmias do you have?
1666434 tn?1325262350 I was curious if there were any other natural redheads on here that get concerned with some of the myths that are surrounded with redheads and childbirth. Some say redheads have a high pain tolerance and others say they have a low pain tolerance. The other main myth is that redheads bleed more than any other hair color during birth. I am curious what others have heard and experienced first hand.
1279189 tn?1275244868 No, with fentanyl on board you will have no withdrawal symptoms from the vicodin. However, it takes two or three days for the fentanyl to reach a steady dosage in your bloodstream, so you may need to overlap with the vicodin a bit as your body gets used to the change. You will not get a "buzz" or as you put it, increased spike in energy from fentanyl that you experience with vicodin.
Avatar f tn Then a couple friends showed up and gave me a few fentanyl pills. The subs blocked most of that but I feel ok. I have to work again in 8 hrs. I have about 6 more pills of fentanyl. I know if I use them I'll get through work but I don't want to start a fentanyl addiction.i was wondering if I take subs instead if I'll just get sick again or if they'll help now. I need to work or I'll lose my car. That's the only reason I'm considering taking the fentanyl tomorrow.
1390687 tn?1281157239 How much of each were you on and for how long? The fentanyl withdrawal will probably be the worst... I had the roughest time with the fentanyl... and no withdrawals from the percocet/oxycodone... it all depends on the person and amount and how long the person has been using,.. good luck.
3106038 tn?1346813169 The baby whisperer. The happiest baby on the block. Christian parenting and childbirth (if that's your religion) or just childbirth by Dr sears. Were my fav.
Avatar m tn My wife has been perscribed fentanyl patches and has been told not to eat grapefruit, does this apply to all citrus fruit ie.
1588890 tn?1297073916 s a month ago, Percocet 10 for breakthru and Lyrica for my Fibro. I am trying to quit smoking and HATE that gum! Was thinking about the patch but was wondering if it was safe to have both on? Any suggestion?
7157762 tn?1390862911 ve stopped taking my percs and taken off my last dose of Fentanyl patches. Wanted to thank all the folks here especially Ms. H who has supported me throughout this bumpy ride. My cold turkey wasn't completely planned. A friend of mine and I planned to jump together but things always seem to come up for us both. Less than a month ago, I went to my pain management doc for yet another refill. I opened up to my doc and issued my wish to be off the patches.
