  • Yes, most likely. Everything will be fine.

  • Yes. Those things can lower a man's sperm count and effect sperm quality, but if one was healthy enough to fertilize your egg then it was fine :)

    You don't want your baby around that stuff, though, and I'm pretty sure that second hand pot smoke is bad for pregnant women, so I'd stay clear of him until he quits.

  • as long as YOU arent doing those things while pregnant, the baby will be fine.

  • Weed will not hurt you're baby. The ONLY POSSIBLE thing it COULD do is maybe limit the amount of oxygen the baby receives. BUT that is ONLY if the pregnant woman is smoking it. Other than that it will cause no ill effects to your unborn child.

  • The only thing that can have an effect on a man's sperm (on tthe DNA) is LSD... so as long as he wasn't doing that the baby will be fine. Pot can decrease sperm count and make them a little slower (I always thought it might make them look funny too, but I've never come across anything saying that) but it does not effect the DNA.
