Meth: Sorry to hear that you are still using while you are pregnant. Showing up in drug screen is least of concerns. Worry about your baby.

Depends : Examination of the urine of an infant will usually not show meth if stopped 2 weeks or more before delivery.If the stool is examined, it may retain evidence of meth use for several months.Stay clean & you can avoid a multitude of problems for baby & might not end up loosing the child as a cps case.
