You want to eat right and stay away from all unneeded drugs and alcohol while you are pregnant and nursing or mothering young children. Cannabis is definitely one of those unnecessary drugs. There are conflicting studies as to whether or not it interferes with a healthy pregnancy, but why would you want to take a risk with a life of your unborn child? Up until relatively recently there was a general misconception in the medical community that there were no physical withdrawals from cannabis. However now we know that even though those symptoms are not life threatening, they do exist. They start usually 24 40 48 hours after cessation of use and last for up to two weeks. Most can be described as depressed mood and appetite and increase in anxiety and sleeplessness. Your symptoms of withdrawal will not affect your baby or harm it in any way. Try to stay active during the day, eat small healthy meals and stay well hydrated. I am so very proud of you. Please take good care of yourself and that way you can be sure you are taking the best care of your child. Good luck to you and stay well.
But it is hard to quit when you used for more then just social Cuz I have really bad head aces and a hard time sleeping but also I have adhd and was also put down for it so I also have depression and now that I have stopped it is hard to live Cuzco my brain wants to shutdown
