Effects on the baby before conception?

Is the baby effected if the dad smoked weed and cigarettes? I know if he does it around me now it is bad but im saying before. does it effect his sperm? I know it it supposed to lower sperm count but I am pregnant and the doctor said the baby is developing well.

  • Believe your doctor. The weed smoke from your babys fathers sperm can't live forever in you. Just make sure youare not smoking or drinking and from here on out you should be fine. Stay away from second hand smoke too. I had to pound that into my bf's head. I still have to remind him sometimes, but we have to protect our babys.

  • if the doctor says you are developing well and you are measuring right then i wouldn't worry about it too much... if you want peace of mind then you can make sure you're doing everything you can like eating right, taking prenatal, orange juice (brain development)
