SimplyRochelle 12-31-2009 05:09 PM

Ditto. We're both about to start cutting back so that in a few months we can quit for a bit so I can pass a 9 panel drug screen to get into the nursing program. It will be a challenge for us because it will just be a huge detox (we are giving up other vices as well) and we are in the process of changing how we eat. It will all be worth it though to be able to confidently go through with the fertility specialists plan this coming April.

jenn09 01-01-2010 04:09 AM

jenn09 01-04-2010 04:46 PM

*hug*

eilonwy 01-04-2010 04:56 PM

Well, I need to find myself a source. I am not one of those people who just hates taking pills and visiting doctors, but to be honest I'd rather be smoking herb than taking pills just to do a simple thing like eat. It's just a bummer to me, I'm still supremely irritated by everything. I've got to get back on the horse now.

Lemon Juice 01-06-2010 04:32 AM

Happy Winter Solstice!

Yes, winter looks amazing here. I'm doing better than I thought. I think Fall starts to freak me out b/c adjusting to cold temps is SO hard for me! I mean, really...I come from hot.heat.high temps, not that I like that, just that it really is harder for my body to adjust to winter temps and less sun. My family is from the sun, I worship the sun. I now miss the sun.

We are having fun in our yard...first winter in this house. We are sledding and building snowpeople and drinking warm tea and cocoa, when mama is nice. We look forward to what the New Year holds for us.

I hope you all enjoyed the winter holidays. Much love and light..and peace in your New Year, mamas...oh, a wee bit o' green, too!

Happy New Year! :

I just wanted to say how overjoyed i am to find this forum...i love that there are other mamas and preggers that feel the same i do about the green. I would have had a serious problem not being able to eat the first tri w/o my "medicine" (which it really was for me), and probably be committed by now with all the mood swings!! I did all the research and the only thing i felt weird about is the actual smoke. So i invested in a vaporizer, which i highly recommend!
One Q--why is everyone saying they stopped a while before their baby was born? scared of testing or is there something i should know? I'm having a homebirth, so not worried about testing here!

Yes I love vaporizers!

The only thing I worried about with my second was testing in the hospital. None of the other tests up until that point, for me, tested for mj. But they did at the hospital so I quit a month beforehand. All was fine.

eilonwy 01-09-2010 02:31 AM

I never smoked while I was pregnant. I've never been a regular smoker at all, really-- just socially, like I said before, and now I wish I had some mostly because I've been nauseated and vomiting for a month and a half. I found out that my state's legislature recently introduced a bill to legalize marijuana for medicinal use, so that's a good thing... but it doesn't really help me right now. I hate being sick all the time, it's so bloody depressing. Ugh. Sorry to be such a downer.

MummaGaia 01-09-2010 01:22 PM

I smoked a few times during pregnancy, mostly to help with severe anxiety attacks. I had planned a homebirth but (very long story short), ended up having to have a C-Section against my wishes. They never did any testing on me at all. I don't think hospitals regularly do any drug tests unless there is an obvious reason to do so. I probably would have tested positive.

simple living mama 01-09-2010 03:24 PM

Going for a hootie and a hike this morning. The snow is changing and it looks crystally and beautiful.

crunchymomof2 01-12-2010 08:25 PM

Subbing.

We currently live in a decriminalized state. Hoping this year brings some good legislation for those of us that don't have many options. I know my dh would appreciate medical use. We previously had nothing to do with politics to the point of not even being registered to vote. We are going to change that this year.

maminatural 01-12-2010 11:24 PM

So my supply finished and I dug into some hash a friend brought me from overseas and it feels less mental but quite relaxingly cool... still total medicine.

I think I want to get involved more politically in the medical legalization of it too!

BettinaAuSucre 01-14-2010 02:29 PM

Do any other moms smoke up during naps?

sometimes i need a mid-day break...and i feel a bit bad and only smoke a tiny bit, not enough to make me unable to function but just enough to relax. i hope i dont sound irresponsible.

eilonwy 01-14-2010 03:40 PM

I would if I could, but a) I have none and b) my kids don't take naps. I don't see how it's any more irresponsible than having a half a glass of wine or smoking a cigarette, and *lots* of people do those things. Even more people swallow a pill to help them relax-- tens of millions of Americans must be taking various medications as anxiolytics. I think a hit of green is probably better for you, your kids, and the environment than the drugs. Like I said, I would if I could-- I'm absolutely certain.

BettinaAuSucre 01-14-2010 04:21 PM

Thank you Eilonwy. and if you were here, id be more than willing to share we only have a bowl or two left...but i am never stingy with it.

You don't sound irresponsible at all! I don't have kids yet, but have worked w/them enough to know that sometimes you need a break--it prob makes you a "better mom" even, by just being able to relax you can deal w/the stress of raising 2 kids!

yippiehippie 01-14-2010 05:43 PM

Running low, getting a little nervous b/c i've been having morning sickness like i'm still in 1st tri and haven't slept through the night in a week now (it's the only thing i've found to help me sleep!)
I've heard you can use what's left from a vaporizer after smoking it, so we've been saving it. Has anyone tried? it's almost all black...if anyone knows about it fill me in! i was thinking of cooking it w/butter like normal.

SimplyRochelle 01-14-2010 08:14 PM

It's like the Sahara here and DH & I don't know enough people in this area to be able to find any more. I am going to have family staying with us this next week and I know it would definitely come in handy. I've had some stomach issues lately and used up what I had to relieve that. I'm hoping it's pregnancy related and not just some bug.

chirp 01-15-2010 12:33 PM

i smoke during naps. i don't feel it ever makes me non-functional. I've even smoked in the morning while baby is still sleeping. I do not smoke in front of the baby though. His wee-bitty lungs don't deserve that. I wish we could afford a vaporizer.

cwat 01-15-2010 03:37 PM

Hi, can I join?
I don't smoke (anymore) but I have no objection with anyone else smoking.
Although, the nice way you keep talking about it, I'm seriously thinking about it again.

nataliachick7 01-15-2010 03:54 PM

so smoking during preg can help w sickness and the pukes? i was soooo sick when preg w ds...

lilli'smom 01-16-2010 10:05 PM

Does anyone have a good, natural way to detox?

I have been smoking again for med reasons and I filed for disability. I am worried that because I filed for back and neck injury, I will be tested to make sure that I'm not a pill seeker.

I have been thinking a juice, fruits and veggie fast, but not sure.

Kailey's mom 01-17-2010 02:37 AM

check out the health food store.. they may have a detox formula for that, I know the one here does = D
