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

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

How long should I wait to take a pregnancy test if I don't have a period regularly?

Anytime you like: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

How to take pregnancy test for my gf to ensure that she isn't pregnant after taking plan B?

If period is missed: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

I haven't had a period since June 30th, I took a pregnancy test two weeks ago. What could be wrong??

Likely nothing wrong: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. Consult this site for more information on this topic.
