  • not the growth, but it could make the kids have asthma. studies have shown it anyway. as for me, when i was preggo with my son i was at the bar all the time, and my inlaws, breathing in second hand smoke. near the end i wanted as much fresh air as i could, the smoke gave me heartburn. it's the third trimester you really want to stay away from it, cuz that's when their lungs are developing fully
