In Which I Freak Out

Here’s the email I just sent to my OBGYN:

‘I’ve been taking Tylenol for fibromyalgia pain since finding out I was pregnant, but JUST NOW noticed on the giant generic bottle of it that we bought from Costco after I got knocked up, the label says “Acetaminophen 250 mg” in big letters, and then in tiny letters below that: “Aspirin 250 mg, Caffeine 65 mg.” So I’ve been unwittingly feeding my fetus about 500 mg of aspirin most days for the last 6 months, because I’m a genius. On a scale of one to a million, how completely freaked out should I be right now?’

But it turns out that I passed the glucose screening, so I’ve got that going for me.
