Let me get this out of the way first:  I urge anyone who clicked this thread with the intention of telling me off please look at this first: http://mothering.com/pregnancy-birth/use-of-marijuana-during-pregnancy

 

I am in my 30th week of pregnancy and I am new to Iowa.

I have smoked pot during this pregnancy and I'm worried about drug tests when I give birth - I've only used weed it's been great for my nausea. I've been searching online and I haven't been able to find a definitive answer whether all newborns are tested or if it's just a selection (mothers with prior CPS incidents, arrests, appearing intoxicated etc).

 

I have stopped smoking but am concerned that it is too late to prevent it from showing up in any tests that may happen.  My biggest fear right now is having my baby taken from me for any period of time.

 

I have never given my doctors reason to drug test me.

 

If anyone has knowledge of where I can find legitimate and precise information or just advice... please help!

 

I'd really appreciate it.

This document states that it is basically up to the physician to perform testing....A-4


None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.shine.gif
