Will new born baby test marijuana positive if mother smoked marijuana till 26th week of pregnancy?

HI, I ve been smoking mj for about 3 years now and I am 26 weeks prego . I ve stopped because I know the state I live in test babies. All I do now is hurt and/ or feel nauseated which is why at first I chose not to stop. I realize its a little late in the game but I do still have exactly 90 days until birth is expected. How can I make sure that I get to take my baby home and love her the way only I can. How long does it stay in babies urine and meuconium

It is best for you that you have stopped smoking mj now.If it is due only in 90 days it is usually not found in the baby's blood.But as you have been smoking mj during the first 3 monts of your pregnancy your habits might have ffected the baby.You should stop smoking mj during the time you are breast feeding as the drugs can be excreted in the milk affecting the mental development of the child.So it is better that you enrol in a deaddiction centre for the sake of the child
