Hi all. I used to post a little to these threads, but kind of lost track a while back. I'm having a bit of an issue right now...
First off, I'm pregnant, we're expecting our second baby and are so excited! I'm 11 weeks along right now. The only thing that has kept my evening nausea at bay the last several weeks has been my good, green friend. Just a couple of hits around dinner time has made me able to eat a good dinner and keep it down.
Secondly... I have also been job hunting the last several months. Shortly before finding out I was pregnant, I went and took a few exams to be put on a list for jobs with the state I live in. I had stopped smoking in case I got a call, but found out what a long shot it was, so I had taken it up again, but pretty lightly.
Well, I got a letter with an invitation for an interview. I stopped smoking as soon as I got it and called yesterday to set up an interview, they already want me to come in this Friday! I'll but just a week out of having stopped smoking. I was smoking daily, but only a couple/few hits a day in the late evening. As I said before, I have stopped here and there in the last several months what with the job hunting and possibility of having to test for a job. So, it hasn't been consistent usage, although when I do smoke it is daily... clear as mud?
So, anyway, if I get offered this job, I'll have to pee for it. Anything I can do to help get this out of my system quickly? And safe to do while pregnant. I am so scared of being the pregnant woman that fails the drug test, how bad would that look on my part?! I've been drinking tons of water anyway because it's the only drink that sounds good to me right now. My nausea has, luckily, really let up in the last two weeks, so I've been doing okay without it and had already planned to quit smoking as soon as the morning sickness let up.
When is the soonest I could hope to pee clean? A good friend of mine says he has never failed a test by just drinking a gallon of water the morning of the test, taking a B-6 vitamin to make his pee yellow... is drinking that much water at one time safe while I'm pregnant? I'll take any suggestions I can get!
Eating a lot of poppy seeds can create a false positive so you could act naive and mention having eaten a bunch of poppy seed bread/muffins, etc. Worked for someone I know.
