Yes i did. I take procodine prescribe by my gynae. And my baby is fine

Id suggest for you not to take any medication without prescription as you are pregnant. It is best to seek medical advise from a professional. Though generally for mild illnesses its okay, still better not to take the risk.

I always ask if the medication is safe for pregnancy/breastfeeding. if the cough is not too bad I will avoid medication. you may wanna boil a pear and drink the liquid,helps in cough, warm honey lemon is good too.

If you've seen a doctor and informed him/her that you are pregnant, and checked that the medication is suitable for pregnant mothers then it's fine :)
