Hello

thanks for the post.

well meth can stay undetectable from the system if stopped for more than 3-5 days prior to testing and it should not be detectable in baby's meconium if stopped 5days before testing.

Well meth use during pregnancy could pose terrible health issues ob the baby and no matter the degree of addiction a pregnant womab should stay off meth during pregnancy and after delivery if breastfeeding. Please if you are having issues with meth just enlist immediately in a rehab for the sake of your baby.

hope this helps
