how long does it take for meth to get out of your system and the babies if pregnant?

Separate issues: The mothers system may clear in a few days if tested with common urine screening. If I test baby just after the delivery their urine may also be clear. However. I can still find evidence of exposure in baby anytime after the 1st trimester. Best not use at all or be up front with the docs. Meth can trigger premature delivery & withdrawal in baby.
