Its truly funny how this question got so screwed up from beggining to end. Tora said She Used hense the Used part, cocaine before she found out. She is not doing it now so give it up. I don't do drugs and I don't believe in doing them but giving someone c___p for something they used not are useing is ridicoulous. Your baby is fine Tora as long as you saying used is actually what you meant. Take care For the people out that that should complety read the whole topic before you judge becauseyou yourself are not perfect in any way as are we.

i think you are all stupid for taking drugs you all need help from a doctor not from people off a website i hope that tora your baby is ok!!! but all you stupid women that are saying you all used drugs when you were pregnant how stupid are you!!!! you could of seriously hurt your children if you choose to have any more i would advise you not to do it again!!!!!

tora, please talk to your doc. Your risks can be minimized.... to all the other moms on this board who are still using while pregnant, or were using when you were pregnant, or are still using while raising your children.... you are all in serious denile. You may THINK you are raising your children well, but compared to a similar person who is NOT using, you are doing a poor job. What child can grow up normally having a parent that can't grow up, be responsable, and behave normally? You may THINK your're doing ok ( my friends cousins aunt had a drug baby and it is just fine...) but really, you aren't. Get help. For your children.

Hey kiddo, as long as you are clean now and the doc clears you, everything should be ok. Just remember that it's done and over with. You can't take it back. Worrying about it will not help you or your baby. I do agree that you should steer clear of all things and people that are drug-related from here on out, though. Illegal drugs cause huge problems for all humans, babies especially. As for the gal asking about her friend who told her to wean herself off meth or whatever it was, I say, that is garbage. Get off it, and get off now!!!! And to miss anti-religion, let people use what works for them, and if it HAS worked for them, let them share their knowlege. Who does it hurt? Best wishes for all who are struggling.

YES!!! There is no safe amount of cocaine that can be used during pregnancy, no matter how early it was detected. If you plan on using illegal recreational drugs, use contraceptives!!! This is why child protective services was founded, for people who cannot be responsible

im 26 weeks and still doing drugs doing meth not all the time but what i want to know what is the worse that could happen to the baby and when i have this baby will the docters know that i was using if i stop know

I don't know the answer to this question....but don't get down on yourself if you didn't know you were pregnant when you used. At that time if is only your own life you are affecting. If someone is using and know they are pregnant then they need to get help before bringing an innocent life into the world.

Its common sense that most drugs will hurt your baby, if its early on enough you should be ok. You people that complain about people doing drugs and how messed up the world is going to be. shut up. its that simple. All the illegal drugs such as, , cocaine, lsd, heroine. were orginally used by the gov. cocaine was actually in coke. thats where it gots its name...anyways for years people used heroine and cocaine as medicine and some how the world wasn't such a horrible place because of it. so before you go acting as if you are better, learn your facts and stop being a drone for the gov, your freakin tools. As a matter of fact NO known birth defect is caused by smoking weed!!! its less harmfull then a cig.

I know a girl who used meth during her pregnancy and her kid has all sorts of mental and emotional problems. She has to take a b___tload of pills for everything just to keep her semi-normal.


erica - October 24

please dont judge me but i had a verylong hard stressful pregnancy i did coke on thrusday just to stay getaway from my problems will it harm my baby and would it be in system when i go to give birth


.................. - October 24

yes and yes. you could also be in legal trouble if your drugs harmed your baby. you can't hide it from the doctors. blood test will show it. some women lose their children to the system because of taking drugs while pregnant. good job mom.


Looking To Change - October 26

Thank you for all of you who were sincere in answering the first womans questions. I dont know if i am pregnant but I could be 11 days pregnant and i used 2 days ago. I was in a bad situation and wasnt thinking clearly but I will not drink or use anything until i know if i am pregnant or not and if i am pregnant i will not use. I hope that even if i am not pregnant i will stop using because i never want to be in this situation again. I pray for all you women in the same situation as me, put your faith in god because it helps, but you have to take the steps to help yourself too. God Bless you All
