Quoting Will☮Creedence:" Yes it will. If they test the meconium and it's dirty just say you quit a while back. Maybe if they then test you and you're clean they won't be as concerned or you won't get in as much trouble."


:!:



This.



It's worth quitting I'd rather be caught, and clean. Then caught and dirty. At least I'd have something to back me up. Just honestly it's not the drug that would make you selfish it's not really a drug at all. It's the idea of getting yourself in trouble and DCF involved over something that's normal that we all deal with that would kind of be selfish.

Okay so you can't quit smoking pot for the well being of your child. I don't care if you can't sleep or eat. Most pregnant women go through that. I personally think that is a selfish act. Especially considering that I did smoke weed and I shot meth. I gave them both up for the better of my child. I did not wait till I was so far along. I quit when I thought I was pregnant. Not even having the pregnancy verified. I gave up a selfish act to help my baby be the best he possibly could. And I personally hope that you do get clean because to even smoke while pregnant is a huge downfall and to think that you are getting your baby high yea thats cool. No good mom could sit there and do any drug for any reason. You can't eat or sleep tell your doctor they can help.

First of all, the baby doesn't get high. Second of all, it's not selfish to use pot to help with pregnancy symptoms that are actually negatively affecting your health AND the baby's health. It's better than ANY drug your doctor will prescribe you. Have you ever read the side effects on those?

Quoting ❥ Meℓi:" Oh yes, if you were so worried about doing all of that then you wouldn't be on here in the first place trying to debate your ignorant assumptions. Good try though."


no because my kids do actually sleep during their naps leaving me a little time here and there to point out people such as yourself false "facts/ideals". and its not ignorant when its a fact. Everything the mother inhales, smokes, eats, drinks, shoots up, etc goes to the baby at least a little. It may not have a direct affect on the baby but you never know for sure because EVERY pregnancy is different. That's why some women who have only one drink have babies with FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome) and some women who drink like a fish their whole pregnancy have babies that are normal. If you wouldn't give it to your newborn then you shouldn't have it or do it when your pregnant. Period.

Babies can be born addicted to Tylenol and suffer terrible withdrawl from it.

Quoting Chelsea :3:" Whaaaat? No way that's crazy... lol Even if I only take like once a day? Every couple days? Really I've never heard of that. Holy crap. "


Yep.
I did a lot of research on marijuana use in pregnancy in the first trimester when my HG was horrible and ran across an article that cited some research regarding the perinatal use of Tylenol. Then when I started getting migraines, I was taking the max dose of Tylenol daily and both my OB and perinatologist warned me that the baby could be born addicted and suffer through withdrawl comparable to heroin and nicotine withdrawl. I was floored. I NEVER in a million years would have ever thought that Tylenol, of all medications, could have that effect.



I think it happens in women who take higher doses on a daily basis. It's still a scary thought regardless. The knowledge is also a formidable weapon in these debates, lol.

i've actually done research on the subject and some DOCTORS prescribe(sp?) pot where it's legal FOR pregnant women,

I forgotmto add that after a lot more research, acetaminophen/paracetamol is actually known to have a rebound effect when you stop taking it after taking it for a period of time. The most commonly reported symptoms are headaches, vision disturbances and stomach issues.



Makes me even more pro-marijuana, haha.

I'm pro weed I am. And it is given to women where it's legal. My issues with OP in this post, were more towards since it's NOT legal. Why risk getting DCF involved the very day your child is born. Because where she is, it isn't legal. Shit if it were legal I would probably smoke it for sickness too. But PEOPLE cause problems, not weed. Go smoke (Vape eat it actually) but honestly it's still illegal whether viewed as a drug or not and will cause problems if found in baby's system... That was my argument and really the only argument that should be made. Weed doesn't cause issues for fetal growth.

^^ i totally agree with this. im from Canada and all they did was ask me if i did any drugs i stopped a good, month or 2 before she was born and just told them no because if you admit to it they check.
