I completely agree with 18. Her smoking goes directly into your child's bloodstream. On top of all the birth defects it will cause your child will be born with a nicotine addiction. At the very least you have to threaten to call the police for child endangerment.

She needs to stop immediately. My friends mother smoked when she was pregnant and her daughters hair grew in bald patches and she didn't get any teeth until she was 4.

I hate this fml, not because the woman is smoking but think about it in the 50's 60's and 70's women smoked during pregnancy and around babies after they were born... So if your parents are showing signs of abnormality your grandma was a smoker. 0.o

I know someone who smoked during her pregancies. The children came out perfectly fine. No brain damage, a full head of hair, and the children are quite intelligent. I'm not condoning smoking, I'm just making a point...

105 - people have a strong social stigma against tobacco. Even casual smokers get too much crap: people think smoking 20 feet away from them will give them cancer.

108- It's not just a social stigma. Everyone who is commenting about the possibility of birth defects is right. Smoking while pregnant is not at all good for the baby. Everything that enters the mother's body enters the baby's. Pregnant women who smoke regularly pass on the addiction and if nothing else the baby will be much crankier as a newborn since it's technically going through withdrawal and it all just makes the parents' life more difficult and often lowers the quality of care the baby is given.

Just because women use to smoke during their pregnancies and around babies after birth, doesn't mean it's okay. Educational adanvcements have been made since the 50's that proves it can cause harm to the developing fetus. Any mother to be in 2012 should be smart enough to know this.

76 - Let's be real here...if someone called the police on a cigarette smoking pregnant woman for child endangerment, it wouldn't be taken seriously. Smoking while pregnant isn't illegal. Irresponsible, yes.

Dude seriously lock up the booze?? You can't be serious they are completely different things. Cigarette smoke can cause low birth weight, preterm birth etc it does not cause birth defects it can aid in helping those to form but it doesn't cause them directly. Majority of our mothers smoked and some even drank and we turned out fine. Please do your research and also depending on how far along she is and her stress level the dr will suggest she cut back not quit

Smoking and drinking are two of the many things that you should not do while you are pregnant, such as riding a roller coaster. OP really should hide his alcohol (if he has any) so his wife won't make more bad decisions.

Hey OP, so what if your wife wants to have a little fun, quit ovaryacting.

Maybe she's just trying for a smaller kid to pop out? But in all honesty, midwives check the placenta after the birth and they will know if she's been doing anything dodgy. Not illegal but it probably should be..

Casey anthony wasnt such a bad person ... Nobody but her and her child and people involved truly know what happend... Dont do drugs ?

If nobody knows what happened, then you can't be sure she is a good person. If she didn't do it, then she is not one of the persons who really knows what happened - she would only know she didn't.

That's just sad, smoking can cause so many health problems to that unborn child, I know quiting must've been hard, but come on! Is one quick smoke really worth your own child's health?!

Good point, for that matter just think how all those single cigarettes add up to packs of 20 each and the cost too! A pack where I live costs me $10.15 after tax!! lol smokings bad for you'r health AND you'r wealth!!!

I would be more worried about pregnant mothers smoking marijuana because that can lead to even more serious effects on the child. Sadly most people are quitting smoking and moving on to illegal drugs, at least where I live.

Actually there are no studies to prove that marijuana causes any severe side effects in babies who's mother smoked while pregnant. I had hyperemesis while pregnant and my Dr joked that if we were in France he would just prescribe me Marijuana for my extreme morning sickness. The only studies completed have only stated that it can cause low birth weight if you smoke during the first trimester. I am not condoning smoking while you are pregnant, but until further studies have been done, we won't know about the side effects or whether it's worse to smoke cigarettes or marijuana. (my votes on cigarettes)

My mom smoked when she was pregnant with me and I'm perfectly healthy. The doctor just told her to cut back a little because the stress of her quitting would do more damage than the actual smoking.

I think you ned to do a little more research. Besides this FLM has nothing to do with marijuana. Here is the bottom line. Op wife needs To quit being a selfish bitch and worry about the health of her child. Regardless of what the damage may or may not be, why take even the slightest chance when it comes to your own baby?

^ the fuck life my? And your statement is an oxymoron. "regardless of what the damage may or may not be, why even take the slightest chance when it comes to your own baby?" If there may be damage, isn't that taking a chance? Just saying. And people who are VERY heavy smokers can't just quit cold turkey, it's like any other addiction. You need to cut back like 131 said because that much stress is also not good for the baby.

No, you need to do YOUR research. Simply quitting cold turkey is actually worse for your baby and greatly increases the chance if a miscarriage than just smoking every once in a while. You don't know the woman's story. You have no idea if she has a lot of stress going on or how much she smoked before getting pregnant. So who are you to call her a selfish bitch? For all you know she is trying to quit but had a hard day and needed that one cigarette. Don't act like you know her life story.

Point being, you shouldn't be smoking ANYTHING while pregnant. And a low birth weight can be a serious problem. It shouldnt take "studies" to prove anything. Just some common sense.

By  DrMime  |  10

Who says smoking is bad for your unborn?! I mean really, my mom drank and smoked while having me and I'm still inteliagint.

Reply

lol you silly, smoking while pregnant is only bad for the mom (just like it's normally bad for you) except the moms body is under a lot of stress so smoking is harder on the moms body (I think that's how it is, don't trust me I'm not a doctor though)

13- not quite. Everything a pregnant woman inhales goes to the unborn child via umbilical cord. All the smoke is shared with the baby. So it's like the baby's smoking too. Same goes for food and drink.

Hey #26 Omg I had know idea! That cant be good for a baby!! Do you know If it's bad for my wife like by breathing because i just got new paint in our house? Or is that different from smoke?

You are a good one. You caught the irony! But seriously, back when I was floating, it was common for pregnant moms to smoke and drink.

You do realize that when a pregnant woman breathes it sends her oxygenated blood directly to the baby?? nicotine filled oxygenated blood also goes through the chord.

#110: Actually, OP just said that he caught her smoking. He didn't specify what he caught her smoking- tobacco, marijuana, crack cocaine? And technically, you can smoke tobacco out of a bong. Its uncommon, but very much possible. You can smoke tobacco out of a hookah, a bong, a soda can, an apple...
