Firstly, I've done enough of my own research to know that Marijuana has virtually no negative side effects on unborn children (much as some doctors would like to argue). The worst I've found proof on is it may cause low birth weight, but certainly nothing worse than a cigarette would do (not to justify pot, but I smoke cigarettes as well so... just stating). Anywho, here's my situation and question: I'm 7 1/2 months along and I've been smoking pot still for a few reasons. (A) It helps me with my autism to function as a normal person - it reduces my panic attacks, headaches, and helps me focus. (B) When I got pregnant I had morning sickness to the point where I was in the ER every other day because I couldn't keep anything down (not even water) for more than five minutes and was puking blood and pot seems to help settle my stomach for the most part. (C) Being pregnant with horrible sickness issues my hours at work dropped from 38 to 8 and I'm getting frustrated as hell trying to set up baby showers and the room and plan everything as well as do doctor appointments and pay bills with no money while puking all the time. My problem now is I've stopped a little later than I meant to (I lose track of time easily, especially when this busy) and I've been told if THC is found in her system (it's a girl!) they'll take her away from me. Obviousely, not something I want to happen. I've been drinking cranberry juice and water and trying to be a bit more active but considering the nausia and the heat (which makes it much worse) I'm limited on what I can do. Any advise on how to clear my system or what exactly the drug testing routine at birth is? I've had some people say they don't test without reason and I shouldn't worry, others say they do it mandatorilly for every baby, and others tell me my system should be clear by then anyway - but I don't want to be taking any chances. I would ask my OB but I don't want to give them any reason to test if they aren't going to already. Any feedback would be much appreciated. In questions I've posted a similar question, if anyone wants to check it out. Pretty much I'm 7 1/2 months and just quit. I had HORRIBLE vomiting (was in the ER every other day, couldn't even keep water down, and was puking blood) that smoking helped reduce and I smoke besides for my anxiety and autism. My question now is if - by some chance - my system isn't cleared when I have her does anyone know A) If they drug test every child or only with reason? B) If they do drug test, can I fight having my baby taken from me? C) Do I have ANY options here other than hoping I end up clear? As I state in my other post, I would ask my OB save that I don't want to give them reason to test if they aren't going to already. Help?
