I didn't know I was pregnant until 5-6 months into pregnancy and scared my baby will test positive for marijuana in TN?

I didn't know I was pregnant until 5-6 months into pregnancy and scared my baby will test positive for marijuana in TN?

Quit now: Your best bet to avoid heartbreak is to stop now and stay off the radar of any child services/legal entanglements. The drug would show on a poop screen, which is what I test but not a urine test if you stop now. In my state they take baby if you are positive on either screen. Stay off and they won't have reason to test. ...Read more

Can a newborn baby test positive for marijuana if the mother wasn't? The mother was always closed up with boyfriend & he smoked constantly but she never did while she was pregnant & never tested postive during th whole pregnancy.

Can a newborn baby test positive for marijuana if the mother wasn't? The mother was always closed up with boyfriend & he smoked constantly but she never did while she was pregnant & never tested postive during th whole pregnancy.

Possible/unlikely: You would only be tested if for some reason you end up on the risk list and they look. Babies first poo can contain traces of drug exposure as far back as several months, and those tests are looking for any, not the amount. Heavy drug use by one parent might get you into problems with the Child and family services anyway. They would notice the smell. ...Read more

Can a newborn baby test positive for marijuana if the mother wasn't? The mother was always closed up with boyfriend & he smoked constantly but she never did while she was pregnant & never tested postive during th whole pregnancy.

Testing differences: When I test a baby I do so o n their 1st poo, which can retain any evidence of drug exposure for the preceding months. Mother doesn't have to be a smoker for 2nd hand smoke to turn baby positive. In my state, baby would go home in foster care and the next year or more would be a nightmare for everyone. ...Read more
