I have been taking Diclectin since the beginning of my pregnancy and i am now 5 months pregnant, and still nautious. I've been told of the 100% safe, but am curious.. i forgot to take it 2 nights this week, and woke up to the baby kicking in the am both times. i haven't felt this before, and my husband thinks it is no coincidence. Am i putting my baby to sleep with these pills too?
There has not been any research done to answer your question, so it is difficult to say whether it is a coincidence or not. However, you are at the early stages of feeling the baby move right now and that is maybe why you noticed the baby kicking when you had not previously. As well this drug is long acting and the drug would still be in your bloodstream in the morning even if you did miss a dose the previous evening. The bottom line is that this drug is safe to take in pregnancy.
