I was at my doctors yesterday and learned that when I had my ultrasound in Feb. they were concerned because they saw a "band" floating around my placenta. They said that they did not see it inside my placenta so I shouldnt worry much. My concern is I didnt know until now and used crack a few more times after my ultrasound. Can using drugs when pregnant weaken your placenta?
I know people who have not found out they were pregnant for 6 weeks and had used and the baby's were fine. But when they found out, then they did not use again. I do know you can addict your baby if you continue to use drugs or may cause fetal alcohol syndrome, also from smoking marijuana. If you don't use anymore drugs the rest of your pregnancy, I believe your pregnancy and baby will not be affected by having used in the past. Be positive and stay clean. Best Wishes.
