Chronic pain sufferer and unplanned pregnancy


Q: Hello everyone I have a couple of questions. I have just found out I am surprizingly  7 wks pregnant.  Not planned at all. So here comes the hard part I am currently taking prescription drugs for chronic pain associated with one ruptured disk and two modertly bulged disk in my c spine. not to mention a list of problems in my lower back.  The medication list includes cymbalta 30mg two times per day zanaflex 4mg three times a day hydrocodone 10/325 5 times per day oxycodone 10/325 at bedtime Zofran as needed every six hours. Lexapro 10mg two in  morning. Gabapentin 1000mg three times a day and adderall 15 mg in morning and half a tab at 1:00. Should I be worried my baby is messed up by all these meds I am on? Because I am very worried. I have my first checkup next tuesday. I am so scared. I am currently being weaned off all meds. And so far I am just dying cause of my pain. My question is this. Has anyone else had chronic pain treated through out there pregnancy? Does these medicines cause problems with the baby? If my neuroligist wont treat me anymore until after i have the baby can anything help manage my pain?
