  • Um wow. If she really thinks that than she needs all of her kids taken away from her for being the most ignorant and stupid person that ever walked the earth.

  • I vote stupid. She should have her ovaries taken out to prevent future breeding.

  • Wow, she should not be responsible for other lives. I hope she makes better choices in the future. I didn't even drink anything with caffeine while I was pregnant.................can't imagine doing drugs and drinking.......................evil.

  • i have a friend that smoked weed and ciggaretts through her pregnancy and since her baby came out heathly she thinks its ok but you never know the long term effects. it drives me crazy seeing a pregnant female smoking or drinking. i see it as being selfish because for not even 9 months they cant stop just for the babys health

  • I completely agree anon. When I was pregnant, I was walking into the doctor's office VERY OBVIOUSLY pregnant and some other very pregnant woman asked me if I had a cigarette!!!!!!!! I swear I felt like spitting on her!! Who just asks a random pregnant woman if they have a cigarette? Obviously, not too bright of a person...............hell, you'd think she would at least have some shame and wouldn't try to light up right in front of the drs office.

  • I believe you are referring to phenylketonuria, aka PKU. They test every baby for this at birth. That is why they stick their heels at 24 hrs and again at 2 weeks. However, I am a nurse and I have never actually heard of a baby having it. That is really quite sad.

    And yes, unfortunately some people ARE just stupid. Believe me, it sucks to send kids home with parents who are and then wonder "why did this joker get knocked up four/five/six times and I can't even get pregnant with a second one?" It's times like that when God challenges me to trust Him.

  • You shouldn't do anything during a pregnancy to put the baby at risk. If someone can't wait 9 months to resume their regular habits, they are not very smart and quite selfish!
