When I was pregnant with my daughter I smoked marijuana for the first two or three months. I tested positive & they didn't really do anything except drug test me every appointment I had after that, so I had to quit. I imagine if I'd tested positive again that they wouldn't really have had a choice but to involve social services. So if you test positive just give them a stupid excuse like that you were around a bunch of people smoking so you probably encountered second-hand smoke (which isn't even posible but the nurse believed it so whatever). It's too bad that it's illegal,'cause ain't nothin' like a little Maryjane to cure morning sickness!

wow, you are a stupid B****!! Putting your needs ahead of your unborn child. I would rather deal with morning sickness then possibly affect the health of my child. I would bet that you are not a doctor. Therefore, you cannot say what effects smoking weed can have on your child. That was such a selfish decision!!!!

Stormy you're an idiot. Let me tell ya a little something about doctors and nurses. We are sympathetic to your face because we have to be but the moment we walk out of that room, our real feelings show. I bet your nurse went back and told the doctor your stupid excuse and they got a good laugh out of it. Use your brain stupid! You don't deserve that baby and you'll lose it soon enough.

Yes, social services will get involved. The mother will be arrested, depending on the drug. Alcohol isn't really punished, but drugs are. Using either one will halt the development of the baby, cause birth defects, force the child to be born in withdrawal, the newborn will suffer horrible pain. If not fatal to the unborn child, the withdrawal process after birth or the defects caused by the drug or alcohol use could kill it. Any woman who would dare to drink or use drugs of any sort whilst pregnant deserves to have her uterus hacked out without any sort of pain relief or anastesia, after her victim is born. All women who use drugs or alcohol during pregnancy are disgusting, murderers, and low life skanks, and should be charged with attempted murder, and abuse.
really!?

They won't do anything about it obviously my fiances baby momma stayed drunk the first like two months she was pregnant and then wanted to act like she was upset when the baby was born tiny! Well duh hunny that's one of the effects of fetal alcohol syndrome! She needs her female parts removed. She told everyone she had lost the baby just so she could party all of New Years week and weekend and then a few days after New Years she claimed for the baby to be okay! Worthless trash!

@ who knows: You're right, I'm not a doctor & neither are you.
@ Stupid stormy: It's unrealistic of you to say that ALL nurses are the same. & even if they did laugh behind my back, that just means they were too weak to call me out to my face. I don't care what outsiders think because it's my child & my business.

The effects of marijuana on an unborn child are unknown. There are (unrecorded, of course) cases of people who have smoked while pregnant and their child ended up healthy. In fact, I've never heard of someone who smoked weed while pregnant & bore a child who had more problems than a child whose mother smoked tobacco. Plus, it is a well-known fact that marijuana in itself is not addictive. I based my decisions on this criteria, so if anyone has a problem, go have your own baby.
