  • they will drug test if they are suspicious of harm to the baby and since you give urine at every visit they could drug test at anytime.

  • they can drug test you anytime since you pee in a cup each time. actually it may be a part of your normal visit, each time. My advice would be stop smoking weed and you wont have to worry about it. do it for your baby...

  • This is Anon :00. My doc tests my urine right there in front of me. Dips the little stick in, waits for the results, then tosses it in the biowaste basket.

  • The can test you at ANY time. It IS legal for them to test you.

    They may or may NOT tell you that they've found drugs in your system and they can report it. If you are found to have drugs in your system at any time during your pregnancy the hospital will be alerted and your baby will be tested at birth. If your baby has drugs in his or her system CPS will be alerted.
