Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I understand that you have been using marijuana to control the vomiting sensation or the nausea associated with pregnancy. However you made a poor choice in medicating yourself since you have become dependent on the substance at this point in time. If you are due soon, it might be best to consult an OBGYN to get a psychiatry referral so as to get off of the substance by the time you deliver and to have as much of a healthy baby as you can. I also believe that you need to consult a psychologist who can help with counseling part to educate you about the ill effects of the use of marijuana.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
