Umm.. I'm not going to say it definitely hurt the baby, but it definitely did NOT help the baby.. Your 17 week old fetus has METH in its system. I would contact your OB immediately. The effects that that could have caused can be very dangerous.

You should try to go to meetings or something.  Or seek some type of help to cope with everything, and to stay off drugs while you are pregnant and even after. Meth is definitely not good for an unborn child. Nor is it good for after the baby gets here. Plus you don't want later on for cps to take your baby away. So i would seek some help now and get cleaned up. And try my hardest to stay clean.

Do not do any more at all. I can promise you that you will regret it for the rest of your life...although it might be hard to remember that meth is hurting your Baby because you cannot see your baby....just know that method is a man made chemical that can mess you up permanently just imagine what it does to your baby...it can put holes in your baby's brain): I know a lot of people who do dope while they were pregnant and they all regret it..if your addicted go to classes and i reccomend staying away from everyone who does it.  I can't say your baby is damaged 100percent...but if your not comfortable telling your doctor...STOP NOW your baby could be hurt but pray that it isn't. Please be safe and keep your Baby in mind from now on!!

it is extremely important that you disclose this information to your doctor. if they discover it and you haven't said anything, they are going to assume you are trying to hide it and will bring cps in. also, they will be able to go over the risks, help you quit safety, and know that they may need to monitor your baby.
I know it's uncomfortable to admit, but if you truly are sorry and want what's best for your baby it's something you have to do.

This is not to scare u but I have ppl in my family and very addicted n I m a former addict have been clean for a year n abit now so m not judging u! It was very selfish of u and u can see that obviously

I'm not being offensive at all so plz don't take it that way but u need to find urself and Ur boundaries before being a mum I no in Australia new laws are if u can't stop u n bub will b reported to social services ... I feel were Ur coming from I trully do but u have to be stronger woman now n drfinatly not think of urself u have a life inside of u and its scarey to think u won't stop when bub is born I agree with a previous comment and for me was the best thing I ever done for myself u need to remove urself from everyone that users n the ppl that gave it to u are just as selfish sorry if k sounded rude lime I said I was once there but never ever would I use if I was pregnant that's Ur responsibility to protect Ur child no matter what circumstance I would ask for a ultrasound asap just to put ur mind at ease good luck n hope all is ok

Do NOT check with your doctor. Your baby will be fine so long as its a one time thing. Please, don't EVER do it again. But if you tell the doctor, you will definitely lose your baby. At least at first. I'm all for bad parents losing their kids so the kids can have better lives, but you made a mistake and I think you know it. I used to smoke, just a little before I got pregnant. I understand you and it. Please, you're so far along. You don't want to lose your baby. Don't ever do it again. But don't say anything.

Tell your doctor...my cousin is an addict...they took her baby from her at the hospital... and she's on probation now...
Avatar universal
Its à good thing if the doc knows because of birth defect and ect.. but do tell her that you want to quit 100% and go to therphy
Avatar universal
If you have the addiction and know you won't be able to stop then you need to inform your provider. And begin methadone treatment as the withdrawal effects can kill your baby and do harm to your body. At least a controlled amount can help and dr can watch closely the affects. After baby is born unfortunately it will also be addicted but will be wiened off it in time. Good luck momma and take care

Don't keep something like that from your doctor. They are here to help you and baby not hurt you. It'll be bad if you don't and then they find out when baby is born.
Avatar universal
You are not going to lose Ur baby by telling Ur doc I can garentee u though and I no this 100% doc can tell once bub is born .... I also have friends that are working for child protection n they will take bub if u keep it a secret .... u can tell if uve taken anything even by a vaginal excemination Ur blood is a diff colour Ur plecenta is a different colour u need to tell them .... totally up2 u though but I no this from experience Ur child will b taken from u if u don't show that Ur willing to quit
Avatar universal
If she were to stop now they wouldn't be able to tell I'm sure....but then again this is just the experience of a girl I know who was in the same situation...and I think it'd depend on where you live..

She needs to tell her doctor because they take urine samples regularly and what do you think for, not only medical test but drug traces...my sister was slipped meth in her drink before she found out she was pregnant, she doesn't know how much or anything and didn't even know until her doctor told her...her son is fine but she was viewed as a user which is unfair because she's never taken any kind of drugs. I think honesty with your doctor will only help you. As long as you seek help and clear your system they won't take your baby.

Please please please stop doing the drugs , if u continue ur baby will come out with birth defects and just to let u know this ur baby gets tested as well ... if they find drugs in ur baby they will take it away and u will go to jail for a long time , for the use of it & child endangerment ... im not tryna be rude or scare u but im being honest with u , i have seen this before please stop it for the sake of ur child

U need to stop doing drugs . I have family members on meth atm ..
Amd i have a nephew who is suffering from it .
My brother just got locked up last week for it . Amd now his life amd his sons is going down hill .
U need to take care of ur child amd stop being selfish
Excuses are not valid .. amd if u do feel bad take the steps to let ur dr know amd stop smoking meth .
It won't stop until u stop . I've seen it . And I'm sorry but it's true .

I am a former addict and got clean when cps came and took my son away I now have custody back and will never touch that stuff again it is not worth it, it took me a year to get totally clean and now have been for more then a year my doc knows I used to do it and I'm sure they drug test me and what not but all I know is I can't go through losing another baby, my friend did I up until she was 25 weeks or so and he baby is fine but she regrets it everyday.

Ahh.  I'm really sorry sweetie.  I'm sorry you gave in and did it of course, but more so that this is the environment you surround yourself in.  Friends, partner, a home that there are people doing meth is NO place to take a child home to.  meth is a drug that gets in the air.  A child can just be in the home where it used and test positive for meth.  

If drugs are a part of your family lifestyle, then I ask you to get some help and make some pretty drastic decisions.  

Agree completely that you should tell your doctor for two reasons.  One, because it is better they know and don't find out some other way and Two, it is right that they monitor your pregnancy.  A baby doesn't need a mom who parties on Friday night with drugs or to be in a house where dad is high on meth.  And the incentive of keeping clean for your child may help you.  You need to be on people's radar so that your home is healthy for this child even after the pregnancy.  

I wish you all the best.  peace
