Welcome to HCM

Smoking of tobacco or marijuana both is harmful to health to self as well as developing baby. I will advise you to quit marijuana totally as it will be very harmful to baby. You have mentioned you are taking meth just to remain normal, but the same amount is making baby dependent. This will be very disastrous to baby after delivery. Just try to taper the meth over 2 weeks and stop it completely. This will be good for you and health of baby.

Hi there, thanks for asking. It is better not to smoke since smoking provides some difficulty in oxygenation of the baby. It can lead to low birth weight as well. Methaphetamine is really dangerous for the baby and can lead to increased risk or placental problem during pregnancy. It could also lead to low birth weight. Marijuana is also problematic for the baby and it is better not to use it. The best way is not to use any of them at all. I hope you pass the period after well. Otherwise, you can tell the doctor to provide therapy for any possible thing. Best wishes.
