I am 11 weeks pregnant... oh that feels so wierd to type. pregnant. pregnant, pregnant. I prefer saying preggers or babyfied...OK, I am 22 years old and this was definately a huge surprise. I am very very excited, as well as having millions of questions in my head, and always wondering if I am doing the right thing. My preggers happened on "oops" accident. My boyfriend (who I've been with for 2 years) and I have been pretty much hating each other lately. We don't even kiss each other, maybe once or twice a day which is extremely odd. I have a rational excuse though- I have something growing INSIDE me...can you understand that? We both live with our parents. I moved back in prior to going to in-patient rehab for addiction to opiates. I was addicted to pain killers, which progressed to over 40 pills a day of Hydrocodone 10/650. Oxycontin, Morphine and Fentanyl when I could get it. I am 4 months clean and very active in my recovery, that isn't my major concern, I am just scared that I haven't told my parents and what their reaction will be. I am in a time in my life of rebuilding everything about it. Learning how to deal with anything naturally, and this is a big thing for someone in early recovery to deal with. I haven't even been to an OB/Gyn yet. Everytime I pick up the phone to make an appointment I get too nervous and hang up. I know I need to start taking prenatal vitamins among many other necessities. I am, however, completely honest with the doctors about my addiction. I also take Buprenorphine which is a mild opioid derivitive connecting to the MU-opioid receptors of the brain. The paperwork says it is not known to cause any injury to a fetus, and that it is safe, but I know that opiates should not be taken while pregnant or breast feeding.
Ok sorry that was so long... Does anybody understand????? Help!
