Stop now: The baby has been affected by your gf's smoking. The sooner she stops, the better. There are no discrete test to measure the level of exposure to tobacco, in-utero. Her smoking is affecting your health and will affect the health of the new born as well. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex

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.
