weed in pregnancy. user banned

So I'm terrified to take meds while pregnant. My bipolar and depression seems worse with the pregnancy horomones and its literally ruining my life...in wondering how safe it would be to take a hit or two of weed? I don't know much about weed other than it has helped my depression before I had kids. I am fifteen weeks. Tia

Meh, it's fine. Better to eat or vape it than smoke it, but a couple hits would be no big deal to smoke, really.

I don't do weed but I would vape or eat marijuana before I'd take antidepressants while pregnant. The studies on their effects in pregnancy just scare me to death.

Its low risk based on what HAS been found. I did it a few times when I was super sick and not eating, but I felt guilty and it wasn't worth it to me. If you're going to despite what people say, eat it or vape.

It is much healthier to eat it ( like in brownies) or to use a vaporizer. It's actually got some very good benefits to it during pregnancy.

I did it for morning sickness, helped a ton.
Healthy 7 pound 2 ounce baby. Smokin a little weed wont hurt the baby.
If anything would hurt the baby its the depression & bipolar. Good luck mama!

I wouldn't. I wouldn't do it not pregnant, around my child, or pregnant though. So I'm probably the wrong opinion to ask for.

I smoke it when I am in unbearable pain but not on a regular basis. I feel more comfortable with that then taking pain meds. As far as antidepressants studies show a placebo has the same effect. I deal with depression without them.

I've never been stressed over a mental disorder. I'm not very clear on what you're saying

Stress is relative. It has never been scientifically linked to having a negative effect on a fetus.
