drug testing newborns.. user banned
20th Jan '10

a friend of mine has been smoking marijuana nearly everyday of her pregnancy...
she said she is gonna quit a month or so before the baby is born so it wont show up on a drug test..
well i know that sometimes they test meconium and that can show drug use for months... she is freaking out even though they didnt test her or her baby last time because if they did she would of been positive, but I was wondering how many of your babies were drug tested with meconium tests?

As far as I know I wasnt and neither was my baby, but then again if i was i would of been clean so either they tested me and didnt say anyting or didnt test me... so im trying to make her feeel better but im afraid she may get her baby taken away or something, i just wish she would stop smoking, i dont really see the point :roll:

Don't they drug test you at prenatal appointments, or are they strictly looking for sugar or protein in the urine?

I had medicaid with my first son and was drug tested twice during my pregnancy. The first time I failed so my son was bagged after birth and his urine was collected. I had been an avid smoker and last time I smoked was 2 weeks prior to finding out I was pregnant. I didn't smoke at all during my pregnancy though. I was clean the second drug test and so was my son at birth.

I think that it may be a state by state or case by case basis.......like if they see a reason to test. I could be wrong though. I know I was not testing nor was my baby that I was aware of.........except at my first prenatal visit but that was it!

They normally don't drug test unless they feel they have reason to do so. I got drug tested 3 different times during my pregnancy because I told them that I had smoked pot while I was pregnant not knowing it so they had me take 3 drugs tests (whenever I wanted though). Then when my LO was born, they never even bothered with testing either one of us because I passed all my tests before that.
