Meloxiam: Stop the meloxicam / mobic now since it is FDA pregnancy category C during first 30 weeks of pregnancy and then becomes category D. Meloxicam / mobic can increase risk for miscarriage and for premature closure of ductus arteriosus. This doesn't necessarily mean that there has been harm to your fetus. Do stop the med now and let your OB know. Take care.

Pain killers: Do not cause infertility and are not a form of birth control. Pain killers are not recommended during pregnancy as they will cause the baby to be born addicted.
