I haven't smoked ever since I found out I was pregnant, and I don't plan on doing it again, this is just a question out of genuine curiosity.
Anyhow, I was wondering if when I go into my prenatal visits, and every single time I go in, they have me pee in a cup if they can tell from the urine sample that there's THC in the system, like if they drug test you? They say it's just to check if you have any infections, and whatever, and that it's just what they do for every standard check up.
I've been told that they don't, but I still question it, given that I told them about the drug use I had done before I knew I was pregnant, and the fact that I live in Texas.
And if they don't drug test you, then when you're at the hospital, and you give birth, do they check the placenta or wait for the baby's first bowel movement so they can send it off and test it, or no?
I just really feel uncomfortable about being drug tested when I don't know about it considering it is my right to know, and it's like a slap in the face to a recovering druggie.
Any answers and even sources of websites you got information from would be much appreciated, thanks!
