Get all the help you can.
There are 'rehab after work" type programs in most cities, even more places have narcotics anonymous meetings, go to them. Learn relaxation exercises and practice them so you can use them in stressful moments. And remember what you are doing this for. You want your child to have the best shot at life and for that the baby needs to be free of meth and needs a drug free mom.
