In brief: Depends

Examination of the urine of an infant will usually not show meth if stopped 2 weeks or more before delivery.
If the stool is examined, it may retain evidence of meth use for several months.Stay clean & you can avoid a multitude of problems for baby & might not end up loosing the child as a cps case.

In brief: Meth

Sorry to hear that you are still using while you are pregnant.
Showing up in drug screen is least of concerns. Worry about your baby.
