  • Well if they live there there's not alot you can do but keep expressing your feelings about it and keep letting them know it makes you sick! I know what you man by it making you sick, I did that with my 2ed daughter and god it was awful!

  • Because of my mother smoking while she was pregnant, I had really really bad asthma when I was little. I use to have to sleep with a mask on cause I couldnt really breath. But now its gone

  • That's awesome you quit smoking for you and your baby. If you live with it, there's not much you can do but voice your concerns. Luckily I have nobody around me that smokes. If I do I politly say not to do around me or I will have to leave. I've avoided smoke so far. But, I'm very aganist smoking especially being pregnant or being around it, so I have no problem saying that it's not good for my baby. Good luck to you!
