SUBSTANCE ABUSE: Right now, the drug is affecting your baby. Do you want a healthy baby ? Be a responsible mother and quit the drug now. There is a lot of complications from smoking weed.

Think about Ur Baby: You need to stop using marijuana now, and not waiting until may. Think about your poor baby. Marijuana may harm your baby brain- and may cause some learning problem and affect the memory. You are going to become a mother and you want your baby to be healthy right? You need to start thinking about your baby, and be more responsible.

Hiding something: Your interest sounds more focused on hiding the facts of your substance abuse, rather than caring for the infant growing inside you. Every bit of weed you smoke goes into your baby, and your baby's brain is not as developed as yours is. You are endangering your baby's health, here. Please talk with your doctor about stopping weed. Once born, your baby will also need an alert, responsive mom.

Yes: If I am looking I can find evidence of drug exposure as far back as about 20 wks.
