  • I did smoke during the first 2 months of my pregnancy. They did random tests right up til the end. I dont think its okay though either. You are putting your child at risk, if you dont care about yourself then fine, but atleast give that little human being a good starting chance in life. Esp. because they have no say in what you do. I am completly against drugs during pregnancy and it took me getting pregnant and some real soul searching to find that out. One time I worked at a pizza shop and a girl who was 8 months preg. was found in the bathroom with a needle stuck in her arm bleeding perfusly(sp).... how could you do that to your child, easy.... selfishness....

  • i smoked a couple times in the first three months while pregnant.... i couldn't keep anything down and the only way i could was a hit. I smoked ALL the time before I was pregnant and helped me gain weight so I could get pregnant. I gained 9 lbs during my pregnany (lost 10 in the first 3 months!) My child was a normal weight, and is very healthy. I often feel if I would not have smoked I would have lost my baby. I WAS against smoking and being pregnant... but from research I have done I have found it is more helpful than harmful! I do NOT smoke currently and am SO underweight... but i won't smoke around my child. I'm sure that sounds weird to some of you that if i smoked during preg why would i not smoke later, but I don't want my baby knowing what it is until baby is between 16-18 (18 if I have a choice!) I want my child to be aware, not sheltered.

  • I stopped smoking pot the second I even thought I was pregnant. I didn't even so much as think about it the entire pregnancy. I was sharing my body with someone else, and I didn't feel that it was right for me to make that choice about HER body. When she was around 4 months old, I was offered a hit and I took it. I still smoke every once in a while, and I like doing it. I don't expose my daughter to it, and if I ever get pregnant again I will stop again.

  • I didn't smoke Pot while Pregnant. But did light up the night afterwards in the bathroom. And I also had a girlfriend that said the same things as anonymous 12:45 couldn't eat and hold anything down So she would take a hit a few times a day. ( she too is a Very small lady ) But She and I have both stopped now and givin it up.

  • I smoked a lot before I got pregnant and quit cold turkey the day I found out. I DO NOT think it is okay to smoke while pregnant. The poor innocent life that YOU decided to create does not deserve to live (and GROW for christs sake) in a womb full of smoke and other carcinogens...let alone illegal substances! (and hey, I smoked pot too before I got pregnant) What kind of responsibility is THAT taking for your childs life?

  • I like pot on the rare occassion I smoke it, which is like every 2-3 years. I have never bought it and never plan on it. Sometimes when you are having a good time with friends and it is someone you trust they offer and you can take a hit and be ok.

  • I have NEVER smoked pot..... pregnant or not. I think it's disgusting and the one time I smelled it it was the grossest thing I have ever smelled. I would never want to smell like that, and just smelling it on the other person it was giving me a headache..... don't ever want to smell it again.

  • Okay ladies calm down.
    First off smoking home grown pot that comes from YOU is not AS harmful as the street pot.
    I googled it and smoking pot street or home grown has the same affects as those of you that smoke ciggarettes.
    Personally I would rather a mom smoked pot a few times during pregnancy than a ciggarette.
    There are no links of anything ebing harmful to a baby of a pot smoking mother, but it is proven to be harmful if you smoke ciggarettes, yet there's moms who sit here a bash pot smokers and probably puff your children into a cancerous death.
