Marijuana and Pregnancy

Hey Ladies!
So, I smoked marijuana daily before I got pregnant. Mainly for depression, anxiety, and to help keep my appetite steady. I quit smoking when I found out that I was pregnant which was at 5 weeks. My first trimester was a breeze. I mainly just had nausea. I am now in my second trimester and I am struggling with morning sickness frequently (about every 2 days). I eat healthy, exercise, and take good care of myself. It's extremely discouraging when I'm doing what I'm supposed to and can't keep it down. A couple of weeks ago, it started taking a tole on me. Extreme irritability, anxiety, depression. Basically, just being down right miserable. I started smoking again, and I feel amazing. I can keep my food down, my aches and pains have ceased, I'm calm and collected, my blood pressure is down. I feel on top of the world. But now, I'm starting to worry about all of the tests they do at birth. Drug tests anyway.. I've read so much and so many people say so many different things. Do they drug test meconium or just urine? When does the meconium start to collect everything that the mother ingests?
