Yes...they do..and i feel soo silly cuz i didnt know...this is my first child..and when my appointments was once a month...i was still smoking off and on..i didnt know they was testing my urine for drugs..until a lady from social services came to talk to me about it..i soon quit after that..i was sooo embarrassed..
I wouldn't be sure. I use to smoke marijuana for my morning sickness which worked amazingly. I haven't heard anything back about failing a drug test or anything. I know my ob definitely for a fact checks for protein and uti in urine which is why we pee every time we go there but the drug test I have heard nothing of.. I will let you know next week after my appt if any question come up. But I no longer do it being a month away .
the first time i went in they did drug test me cuz wen i went back the second time the dr told me my drug test came out fine... i havent heard anything since then... they did drug test my friend a few times in the begining untill she would come out clean.. i think it depends on the clinic..
Wow...i guess every doctor is different...for my 6 week checkup..i told the doctor i was smoking for my morning sickness..and i kept smoking up until i was 18 weeks...the nurses never said anything to me until last month..but yeah..every doctor is different.
My OB with my first did routine drug tests if you waited to see a doctor until 12 weeks or later. I only knew since I didn't get a doctor until I was 14 weeks and they told me they do that with all moms who postpone care.
Wow they really are hot on with drugs where u guys are! Then again in the uk we dont see an actual doctor unless something is wrong, we only see the midwife, they test ur urine sample infront of u for uti and protein then throw it away! They ask about drugs and expect honesty, they never judge u, just want to help!
the whole inhaling nd stuff yea it gets in yur system but not enough to come out on a drug test... trust me... all the boys in my house smoke inside the house because they dnt no im prego yet nd yes i do smell it alot... my bf smokes around me also.. nd all the drug tests the doctor has given me the weed has never came out on the test
Smoking and inhaling are two different things, you said smoking, which of course will give you some negative feedback. Even 2nd hand smoke can cause an increased risk in SIDS in an infant, I don't know about you, but no family smoking is worth my child's life.
My first pregnancy i smoked almost the whole time because i was so sick i was honest with the doctor he worked with me and knew i smoked until the day i delivered also was on pain medicine for carrying him so extremely low it was very painfully. Doctors i was never drug tested even before i was honest about smoking with the doc now again im almost ready to deliver and although i haven't smoked at all i have not been drug tested they place the strip in my urine test for protein and throw it away. They only drug test you and the baby if their is suspicion of drug use aka if the baby shows sign of addicted or something wrong with baby also if you delay getting prenatal care for to long my friend got tested once baby was born because she went 3 months without prenatal care.
Im from Australia and we dont get drug tested during pregnancy. Maybe at the start we do but wen we go to appointments and we are low risk all they check is weight, blood pressure and babys heartbeat. Im a smoker and theyv said nothing to me at all. We dont get judged if we smoke weed.
