I was worried my whole pregnancy about my baby withdrawing once she was born.
Needless to say, when it was time to be induced, I was nervous and scared shitless!
Baby was born on 4/4/14.
She came out very jittery and was like this for 4 days. She never showed any other signs of withdrawals.
Her highest score on Finnegans was a 2.
We were released on Monday 4/7. And we only had to stay the extra day because I ended up having to have an emergency abdominal hysterectomy immediately after delivering baby. It was discovered I had placenta increta (placenta had grown into uterine wall and I had severe blood loss).

Baby is doing great. She's 13 days old and no longer jittery. She does sneeze quite a bit, but I don't know that it's withdrawals. She also ended up getting horrible diaper rash, but that was yeast, so again, I don't know that the diaper rash was withdrawals.

I also had great nurses. Was never treated badly.
I don't know if baby was drug tested, but CPS never came to talk to me.

Anyway, so that's my story.
Oh and I was also on 8mgs at time of delivery.
Anything else I'm forgetting, just ask! (:

I also wanted to add a few thing..
Baby was a little jaundice but never needed the lights.
She weighed 6.10 and was 18" long. She's very small-! Especially considering my last was nearly 9lbs!
I do believe the subutex played a part in her size, but that's not a big deal. She's healthy and that's what matters.

Breastfeeding helps! (IMO)
I actually had to pump and just recently started trying to BF cuz of my surgery, but I really think it helps the babies from withdrawing to the point that meds are needed.

That's all I can think of at the moment.
I'm so tired, my brain isn't working right :D
