So yesterday I found out I am going to be a mum for the first time. Me and my husband are so excited! I think it's still really early stages as I predict I'm about 4 weeks - a long way to go!!
Over the last couple of months I have been suffering with back pain and recently went to a chiropractor who informed me that I have a twisted pelvis. To ease the pain I have been taking a mixture of paracetamol, codeine and ibuprofen.
Since finding out I'm pregnant I have stopped taking everything and only taking paracetamol when really need it.
However I have read that taking ibuprofen in the early stages can cause heart defects and potential miscarriages. Is this true?? What should I do?? Starting to worry a little! If I had any idea I was pregnant I wouldn't have taken it. I am yet to see my GP, just waiting for an appointment.
Please give any advice you may have.
