This is also what my friend said. She cut back to avoid oxygen depravation to the baby. She did however say that she was planning a UC but ended up going to the hospital & was drug tested. Her test was positive, but the baby's was negative. Apparently it doesn't cross the placenta???

I smoked mj with my second, but not with my first. They developed normally the same either way, and actually my second son was 1 oz heavier than my first. They are both incredibly smart and sweet boys, and I can't believe how old they are getting! But anyway, thats just one real life scenario about mj during pregnancy.

I smoke while preggers, but not alot. THe only thing i have issue with is the act of smoking, not the mj. I'd rather be vaping or eating it.....i should make some butter
This is the only pregnancy i have smoked throughout though, the others i quit fairly soon into it, but after doing some reading i didin't think it necessary to do that. IT's better for me to partake a bit than and be able to relax than not.

My DD and I both tested positive during our hospital birth and CPS was involved

I should add, and meant to add, that slowing down your partaking and even stopping it in the last 6 weeks or so is an excellent thing to remember to do. If you are in medicaid, I know they test at birth so it is better to be safe.

Please Help - Freaking out about breastfeeding after smoking

Hello, I just found this thread/site for first time. I have a 10.5 month old and abstained from smoking weed through preg and until today. I hurt my neck today and was in bad pain. My boyfriend suggested I smoke a little weed to releive the pain and I figured if I only had a few puffs it would be okay. I took 3 hits of chronic/kind bud only after I had nursed. Waited 3 hours and nursed baby for about 10 minutes before he fell asleep. I had a buzz for about those 3 hours but felt it had worn off when I nursed. It's a few hours later now and I am back to being my regular anxious self. I immediately regretted smoking after reading online that the THC will stay in fat cells and will pass to breastmilk and baby's urine will test positive for 2-3 weeks. DS check up for one year is coming up next month. If a blood test is done for lead, will marijuana show up? Will doctor report? What if baby was hospitalized for some sickness and had a urine test? Will it show up? I am freaking out now that CPS will come and remove my kid if it is found out that I bf after smoking. I know all the benefits of bm but I am seriously thinking of weaning TODAY and switching to formula. THat is how scared I am of the involvement of child welfare/gov't in our lives.

Please tell me I am WAY overreacting and I didn't just do irreparable harm.

mjkon78 - I think you are overreacting. I don't think anyone can test your son without your consent. Even if they test for lead then they can't just do a random test for mj. Second, don't stop BF! Reschedule the appointment if you are that worried, but don't stop BF. Blood tests - when they test for lead, MJ won't just "show" up, they would have to test for it and like I said, they can't without your consent. Even if hospitalized for a sickness, they wouldn't test for this. Take a deep breath and relax
