Happy Spring!! :

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and Herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant"

Hey everymama!!

Just stopping by for a quick break from class... Rounding up week 6 and it doesn't get any easier! It's mentally exhausting and I am having serious doubts if I can do this, I may need a tutor for Algebra to get me through the last 3 weeks of class...

Well, I better be off, the sooner I get done, the sooner I can *relax* before bed. Which may be later than sooner at the rate I'm going.

I was sooo glad to see the Spring Thread, btw...

New here...

I was checking out the Winter thread and enjoyed it. I don't partake currently, and I haven't since before I was pregnant. But I wholeheartedly support responsible marijuana use, so I think it's great that this thread exists. The parts in the last thread about talking to your kids about it was great. Someday DH and I might partake again, and we'll want to be upfront with our kid. Though, we live in a rural conservative area, so it's not lax like Cali or other places (plus finding some green around here is next to impossible).

I should probably be doing something else right now.

Luckily her mother was able to take her babe and live with them that way but it was a scary ordeal for her...and as a result she had a homebirth with her next. There was talk of this in a past thread...have you tried to search the old MJ threads for info?

I stopped 45 days before I was due in case of a transfer...but I had a wonderful homebirth that went well, thankfully. I didn't think the risk was worth it and glad I did stop since a mama in my DDC told us after our births that the hospitals do test here (she happened to work in labor/delivery at a hospital I *could* have had to transfer to). For me it was better safe than sorry

Tiff...awesome! I still need to hook you up w/ my old friends back there Very friendly

D...good luck!

and Jojo, I am so happy for you! I can't wait to see your new place. I have to PM you now. We are packing away and I can't stand it : So sick of moving! Ready to be settled in our new place and relax!

Hello, happy Spring to everyone! And (noticing it is after midnight here) happy Easter for anyone who celebrates it. Baby D and I have been staying with my mom since last Monday so I haven't been smoking much. Her father and I have never been so uncertain about our future together, it's a terrible feeling! I have been smoking a few cigarettes (like 1-2 per day) and I feel crummy about that .
This gets sooo OT but I had to share because my mom scared the shit out of me when I was stoned... possibly the reason I haven't been partaking, LoL! The third (I think) night I was here, I had finally gotten D back to sleep after one of her late evening awakenings. I smoked out on the porch and then got online. My mom came in here and started complaining about how the baby had woken her up twice already that evening and she got four hours of sleep in the past two nights combined and what the hell was I doing on the computer in the middle of the night. She was illuminated by the slightly bluish light from the screen and instead of speaking, this strange whisper-screaming... it was scary! I was like "oh my god," and just went to my room and laid down. Then I realized it was 10:40PM! Seriously?! I tried to sleep for a little bit but there were some things I really had to do so I got up and did them and went down at twelve... a very normal time for me. I got scared, wondering am I going to be living with someone I have to actively avoid at night, etc. But she brought it up first thing in the morning and although she meant everything she had said, she did feel a lot better after getting 7 straight hours (which is really good for her).
Of course it is weird just to be in a position that someone would tell me to go to bed... but also, my mom has this need to control and plan out everything she does way ahead, and my partner is totally the opposite. I am a little bit like that, enough that it's been a source of conflict between him & I, but my mom is so extreme with it that at times I am reeling at her inflexibility. Other than that, we are having fun and doing lots of stuff together. I've been working on getting a job out here ...if I do that might really seal our separation. I have no idea what to do. He pretty much gave up on working out our differences, and made a point to say it (more aggressively than he had before) in front of my mom obviously knowing that she would offer for D & I to stay with her. But we are talking on the phone a bit and on one hand there seems to be a fair chance that we will give it another shot, while on the other hand he is still skeptical that there will be any difference. He's right, we will just fall back into the same problems again. So I dono. >sigh<

First time posting here! I am going through a super rough patch and doing a pretty good job of keeping it together. I told my dear sweet sister a bit of what is going on and she gave me some great advice. I am a strong person, a great mother, these things are really bad now, but will be easier as time passes... and I should totally smoke a bowl, esp after I have been crying. Honestly I have not been able to really cry yet. I would love to smoke some. I have no friends or family here, though. Actually my couple of dear friends who could have helped me out in that area died unexpected painful deaths within the last six months. Maybe I'll buy a pack of American Spirits. Don't worry... I am not the addictive type. Well how is that for a hello? Sorry to be such a downer.

spent the day at the park, face is wicked burned, pale yankees

holymoly- Mama, I'm so sorry you are going through this with no one close. Here is a from all of us. You are amazingly strong & your boys & new LO are so lucky to have an awsome mama like you. They will learn to love and respect others from YOU.

As long as you use in moderation you are OK. It helps you to be a better you, to relax in this time of turmoil, it is like any medicine but, all natural. Having a stressful pregnancy *CAN* cause complications (or not) so I believe helping yourself to stay cool and collected is a priority besides nutrition.

Stay safe, happy, and know that even though we may not know eachother IRL we are all still here to help

holymoly - I agree with jojo, but I would only be worried about partaking during your divorce. You wouldn't want anything to affect you having custody of your kids. Don't want to give stbxh any ammunition, kwim? Especially since it sounds acrimonious already. Hope things improve, and congrats on your surprise.

I should probably be doing something else right now.

Holymoly - my biggest concern would be smoking during the divorce - it will be very easy for your stbxdh's attorney to ask for drug testing. And since you are pg, you can't use any detox stuff ... that would be my biggest concern. It could cause you to loose custody, the courts don't see MJ any different from crack, kwim?

holymoly - I agree with everyone else . I can say honestly from my expreiences with DD , my friends IRLs experiences with their children and the women on green passions ( and now here) I have NEVER heard of a "pot defect" unlike - say fetal alchol syndrom . But if you want a link http://search.marchofdimes.com/cgi-b...rd=DRUG+drugs+
and mostly I think they too are trying to cover some ass - I never heard of any person ( newborn or adult ) withdrawing from pot ...
Sorry about your STBX hope things work out well

A little happier news we seemed to have solved out gnat prob ( nasty little buggers) so DH is happy as can be !

So for those of you who cut back how much you smoked or quit altogether while pregnant at what point did you do that? When you were TTC'ing; once you got the BFP; or not 'till near delivery? I realize that this depends on how 'planned' the pregnancy was...but still. What did you green lovin' mamas do?
TIA!!!
