She had a bud in the oven.

A woman posing as pregnant in Argentina was allegedly busted with nine pounds of marijuana stashed in a fake baby bump, according to officials and reports.

The unnamed gal and a male friend were crossing the country’s border into Chile by bus when they were stopped at a checkpoint in near Mendoza this week, according to the UK Metro.

Officers searched her bag and found two bricks of cannabis —  then fifteen more, held together with paste, inside a phony wearable stomach constructed with glue, according to the outlet.

“She made a belly out of paste, hid 15 cannabis bricks inside it and faked a pregnancy before trying to take it form Mendoza to Santa Cruz,” Argentina’s Minister for Security Patricia Bullrich tweeted along with photos Wednesday.

“The pretend mom-to-be and her accomplice were arrested.”

A police spokesman said the pregnant  poser was, “asked to leave the [bus] and it was confirmed she was also carrying drugs and no baby inside of her,” according to the outlet.

In total, her special delivery weighed about four kilos, and she was charged with drug smuggling.

Authorities believe she and the man were headed to the Santa Oliva in Patagonia, according to the outlet.
