When I pre-registered at the hospital for this birth, they had me sign a form about drug testing. I'm guessing it was because I admitted to smoking weed until I found out I was pregnant. I didn't have a problem signing the paper though, since I quit when I found out. Also, the Dr. I had with my first 2 kids really didn't have a big problem with marijuana during pregnancy. That was strange since he was a Christian Dr. who wouldn't even prescribe birth control.

They drug tested my BFF 2 years ago when she had her son (same doctor and same hospital that im using). And im sure they will test mine too which is fine.

Im sure every state and maybe even hospitals policy is different.

Hmmmmm, glad to see lots of other mommies talking on a subject dear to my heart :D.I'm sorry for the long response, but I can relate a worry I had last couple of weeks. I'm not looking to debate if weed is right or wrong. I see most of us who don't have a problem with weed smoking still would never risk doing it during our pregnancy. I was FREAKING out about this subject a couple of weeks ago because I had smoked before knowing I was pregnant. I was so worried, even though I quit as soon as I found out. I saw all of these posts about women getting their baby taken away because of a drug test. Even though I don't drink, don't do any other drugs, and don't even drink much caffeine. I think the laws do vary from state to state. I think in FL if there is doubt that the baby is not safe, they can follow up with this. You fill out HRS (Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services) paper work at the doctor on your first visit and I got confused, because I thought it was for programs like WIC, or for financial assistance, so I told the nurse I didn't think I would "qualify" for this. The nurse explained that is for other help, like if your pregnancy is in danger because of drugs or if it was unwanted by you or by your spouse, then the state wants to help. You can decline the "help" which includes drug testing, HIV screening, counseling, etc, but if the Dr. feels there is a risk to your pregnancy, they can over ride this and still refer HRS to visit you. My husband was with me at my appointment, he knew how worried I was, so he also asked when I stepped out of the room about this, he told her how worried I had been and she told him that I need not worry, that the drug testing was more likely to happen when the mother had not gone through prenatal care. Like someone shows up ready to give birth and has never even gone to a doctor her entire pregnancy. That is big red flags that drugs were used and they have to test for EVERYTHING to know what they are dealing with. Now with all of that said, Iam not saying there are not drug tests throughout the pregnancy, I really have NO idea. But what I am saying is that if you smoked before and quit, don't let it worry you too much.
