What are like the long term effects or does it have any effects at all to ur fetus? Does it make a difference if u slammed or smoked? And if u did it almost everyday? But stopped already at the 3rd/4th week because u think ur pregnant? Is the drug going the affect the baby when he/she is born?

Being that the Rx. Amphetamines have a pregnancy risk catagory C. The Crystal Meth may be a pregnancy risk catagory X being it's made with household chemicals & battery acid, or whatever they want to put in that crap, even cat piss! So yeah, get off the stuff & stay off it!. It can & will greatly harm &/or kill the fetus before & even after your baby's born if you're still using, it can still kill the baby through breastfeeding, & smoking & even being around infant while high cause that drug just sticks to everything & it does comes out of your sweat, saliva, or breath too.

It might have effects on the fetus and it might not. Its hard to know this early. The best thing you can do is quit and get treatment. Here is one link on effects it could have on the fetus.
As long as you quit now and take good care of your body your baby still has a great chance. I heard about woman who had smoked it through there whole pregnancy and still had a healthy baby. 6 years ago I was pregnant with my first child and didn't know it at the time. I was 18 and I had went to a party and had snorted coke, probably about 2 grams. Then a couple weeks later I found out I was 4 weeks pregnant. I freaked out and worried through my entire pregnancy that my baby was gonna have problems because of my stupid mistake. She came out perfect. She is smart and healthy and I love her more than anything in the world. Are you addicted to meth? If you are I can help you look for support to get through. Im gonna add you as a friend and u do the same so we can send private messages. hope everything works out for you and take care of yourself.

Bless your heart! I'm proud of you for stopping when you thought you might think you're pregnant. I have never tried meth, but I have many friends/aquaintences who have. I live in the Ozarks (meth capital) so I see it all the time. It's so bad here you can just tell by looking at people most of the time (not being mean or stereotypical, there are mannerisms like constantly moving mouth). I do know how difficult it is to get off of once you've started and how addicting it is. I also know it can be made of so many different things, none of which should probably be in the human body. I don't know the effects on fetuses. I know my step sister had a baby that tested positive for meth when it was born and it's ok. However, they took it away from her in the hospital when it was born. I would think that it may depend on what was used to make the particular batches you have used. Definitely you should see a doctor.
You should switch doctors if you find one that is rude to you or treats you like an "addict". Any doctor who is interested in helping people should NEVER judge and instead should encourage you.
Please realize, even if you aren't pregnant, that you have made a HUGE accomplishment by quitting and maybe you can stay off of it even if there is no baby. It is awful stuff and I hate to see anyone on anything that could harm them, especially meth. I've seen lots of lives ruined, including my step sister's. And, if you are pregnant, realize how much you love your child since it was all it took to get you to quit and don't go back to using once it's born. Good luck!
