In brief: No

Hydrocodone is safe to take in pregnancy.
Of course, you should only take it for the least amount of time necessary to control your pain. It is not associated with birth defects but chronic, long-term use may put the baby at risk for narcotic associated issues at birth, including respiratory depression.
