Im 12 weeks pregnant and I only hit a joint one time..will it still be in my urine even though im not a frequent smoker?
No, it won't be in your urine and it didn't harm the baby. Smoking such a small amount won't cause any damage to you, your baby or a drug test. Just to be on the safe side, don't smoke again during your pregnancy or while/if you are breast feeding.
It is always best to avoid drug exposure during pregnancy, especially during the first three months, but having said that, I find very little evidence that smoking marijuana during pregnancy is as harmful to babies as smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol. In fact, last year the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology published results of a study involving more than 12,000 women that looked at the association between using marijuana before and during pregnancy and the outcome of pregnancy. The researchers found that five percent of the women reported smoking marijuana before or during their pregnancies. Those who continued to smoke marijuana at least once a week before and throughout pregnancy gave birth to babies whose birth weights were slightly lower than the other women's babies although the difference wasn't statistically significant. There were also no statistically significant differences in the birth-length and head circumference of the babies born to the women who smoked pot. Based on these observations, the researchers concluded that smoking pot during pregnancy wasn't associated with increased risks to the babies.

They aren't going to drug test you at your ob appointment. However, you shouldn't do drugs while pregnant and even though I personally believe there's nothing wrong with marijuana use and agree with jlw completly, always better to be safe then sorry.
Please tell me you did that before you got pregnant.
thanks for all the advice!!!
