I'm sure your midwife was doing her job, but she's probably not an expert on these kinds of medications, whereas your pdoc *is* an expert and I'm sure she/he has thought about the effect on your baby.

The bottom line is that your baby will be fine, and you need your meds. That doesn't make you defective; quite the reverse. You're taking responsibility for a tough choice: you know your baby needs a healthy mom. And since most midwives will offer you all kinds of medication during labour, it doesn't make too much sense to stop taking the stuff you really need before labour.

Do take care of yourself! When I was pregnant I found a little chocolate always helped (followed by a brisk walk!).
