I took Lamictal from 11 weeks until delivery at 35 weeks 5 days. I conceived while on it but was off by 5 weeks. I had twins and preterm labor multiple times which is why they were early not the med. (My first DD was born at 38.0 weeks. 6 lbs 13 oz; 19 1/4 inches)
Baby A was 5 lbs 4 oz; 18 3/4 inches
Baby B was 5 lbs 13 oz; 19 inches
The girls came home with me from the hospital. (Steroids to develop their lungs happened earlier in pregnancy) They're 7 1/2 years old now.
The only physical problems are asthma and allergies for both, although to different degrees. However both the father and I have allergies so they had a 75% chance of having allergies anyway.
They have 0 cognitive problems. Both had a PsychoEducational evaluation (IQ testing) and are in the Gifted program.
Mom to 4 girls - one age 9 (January 2005), 7 year old twins (January 2007) and new baby girl born July 2, 2014
