Be prepared: It is good that you have stopped.Your job from now until past delivery is to abstain and hope you don't attract the attention of child & family services.When a kid under their watch presents for delivery we look at your urine, which would be clean, and the kids poo,not blood. The poo can retain evidence from the point it was created, and a sensitive test would show it from 28wks. ...Read more

I'm 24 weeks. Is there a way marijuana can be out of mine and my baby's system before birth. If I stop now?
Define "out": If they don't look, they won't find it. If they just look at your pee & you stop now, they won't find it. If you are on a watch list from prior contact with child & family services or show up with pot smell or pothead friends, they will investigate thoroughly. If I wanted to be sure, I know how to find it in baby no mater what you do now. ...Read more

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
I am prescribed medical Marijuana from my dr but before I take it am I able to still breastfeed or will it affect my baby?
If my husband smokes marijuana how can that affect me from getting pregrant and if I do get pregnant would it do any harm to the baby?

Some research studies have found lower testosterone in heavy marijuana users & that sperm in marijuana users may "poop out" but epidemiologic studies have found no evidence of impaired fertility in marijuana users. There is also no evidence of any harm to the baby. See http://www.Cannabismd.Net/fertility/. ...Read more
