Stop now: I am glad she has you as a friend. Hopefully you can get her to treatment. There is no predicting the effect on the unborn child, whose interest here is paramount. No one quits "meth" without a good social support network. Please be a real friend and guide her firmly.

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.
