Will taking 1 hit of meth at 18 weeks pregnant show up in babies meconium at birth in 22 weeks? never used again? she will be tested, along with baby.

Meconium: Think.. where will it all go , or `accumulate? But In Meconium which begins to form, I believe around 12 th or 16th wk. Drugs can be detected in Meconium by second trimester. If you stay clean and your UDS continues to be negative, they may not test Meconium.
But are you asking this question for yourself or for your Baby, that little helpless, precious being expecting all protection from Mama. ...Read more

My friend used meth 1 time at 18 weeks pregnant, very small amount, will it show in babies meconium at birth, if she delivers at full term. in 22 week?

Meconium starts : forming between 12-16 weeks. The Chicago-based lab we used when I worked for the NV State Health Division claimed that their assay could detect illicit drugs in meconium used 6 months prior to delivery.

If you drink a glass of sweet juice or have some chocolte, the baby will prolly hop around a little for you,if you get too worried! ...Read more

Can raising voice or being emotional hurt baby at 18 weeks pregnant?

Can raising voice or being emotional hurt baby at 18 weeks pregnant?

No: emotional stress in general isn't something you need to worry about. We all have bad days and get upset or sad and sometimes lose our cool.

Its more of an issue if you harm yourself when upset, refuse to eat or drink, or suffer abuse. ...Read more
