Hey everyone! So I am 40 weeks pregnant, one day past my due date and am currently taking about 3mg of subutex every night. This might be a stupid question but I'm not 100% sure on the details of subutex and have never been pregnant before. So my question is, will being on subutex make it harder for me to detect if I'm having a contraction? I know that subutex has some pain relieving properties but I just don't know if it would affect me feeling the true strengthof the contractions in the beginning of labor. I've been on subutex since march and started at 8mg. Just hoping to get others opinions and stories who have went through the same thing. I know when I'm in labor I'll be able to feel the contractions when they get closer together and everything but just am not sure if I'll be able to detect them in the earlier stages. At my last NST I was having contractions and didnt feel them at all so I'm guessing they were Braxton Hicks. Thanks for any information anyone can give!!!

Hi akakaka and welcome,

I've never had a child on sub, but I've done lots of research and learned a lot about sub, addiction, and pregnancy over the past 2 1/2 years. In my utterly non-medical opinion, subutex shouldn't have any effect on your ability to feel your contractions. Yes, suboxone and subutex do have some pain properties, but not to the point where you wouldn't feel the contractions. You can read many many stories here of women giving birth to healthy babies while on sub without having any complications whatsoever.

I'm sure other moms will see this and post their response as well. Maybe even Dr. Junig will weigh in, too.

Oh and lastly, congratulations on your impending bundle of joy!
