I am A huge supporter of Marijuana. I Haven't smoked but A few times since being pregnant for fear of failing a drug text at apt. But Recently some of the "blessings" of being pregnant have just been to intolerable. I'm 22 weeks & the heart burn & lack of sleep was killing, So I smoked which helped me so much. I was just wondering If there's any way the could try to take my kid away from for failing for Marijuana or if I'm really gonna even get drug tested. I really hope that the people reading this are not closed minded people & also take into consideration I refuse to take any prescription drugs while pregnant other the my pre-natals of course. Please don't reply with negative feed back. I just want feed back from other people who have smoked marijuana during pregnancy or know someone else who did.

I've read that it is better to vaporize rather then smoke it.

Yes if you fail a drug test while pregnant & if the fetus fails the drug test when he/she is born... CPS can (& most likely WILL) take your child away.

& Why would you refuse to take other medications while pregnant if they've proven to be SAFE while pregnant? (marijuana is not proven to be safe while pregnant...) Think about it.

I wouldn't personally do this while pregnant. Its worse than smoking. However, that is me and I don't know if they would take your child for smoking. Have you talked to your dr about smoking while pregnant. I understand your not taking anything else while pregnant except prenatals, but that is the same with a lot of us. Heartburn and lack of sleep comes along with being pregnant.

Depends on what state you live in. And it doesn't do any good to state what kind of feedback you want in your thread. People will say what they want/feel.

There should be no reason you or your child will ever get drug tested in the hospital unless you're an obvious heroin addict or something of the sort.



Start vaping though - I don't believe marijuana to be harmful in any way to the fetus, but smoking anything deprives the fetus of oxygen.

If you can't deal with the "stress" of being pregnant what are you going to do when the baby gets here and the stress is 10x worse??.

One more thing.... you're about to be a mother, which comes with ALOT of struggles. Including more lack of sleep & so on... You're going to have to get used to it without doing drugs to cover it up (AT LEAST lay off the drugs until after the baby is born). Heartburn & lack of sleep are normal with pregnancy....

Why? If it's proven to be safe... while marijuana is has not been proven safe while pregnant.



I'm not really sure what ambien is for... but why need it at all? It's not healthy to pop a pill (or do drugs) every single time you're feeling a bit under the weather.
