  • i had a friend who smoked with all 4 of hers. they were all born earlier and smaller than the next. and the later 3 had to stay in nicu. the third one almost didnt make it because his lungs were not developed and was only about 3 lbs. they all 4 have asthma.

  • I'm sure I will be bashed for this, but I did smoke a little bit throughout my pregnancy -and yes I know that I should not have, but I am not perfect. I smoked maybe 2 cigs a week, and there were no complications- I actually had a big healthy baby.

  • This is like the 5th question i have seen in 2 days about smoking when your preg. IF the chances were only like 1 out of 100 babies are born with problems then that should be enough to make you not do it no matter what...i know it is alot more than that but i am just saying QUIT.

  • I wonder how many of the moms that smoked during pregnancy and had "healthy" babies will find out they have asthma or other breathing problems as they get older.

  • Every woman I know who smokes smoked during their pregnancy. They may have tried to quit or cut down but they all kept smoking. I know plenty of people including myself who quit long before pregnancy. I have looked around and I can't find anything that smoking can cause asthma or breathing problems in a fetus. Its not like they're inhaling smoke. From what I have found the harmful effects include: Low birth weight, premature labor, premature rupture of membranes, placenta abruption and previa, and I higher rate for SIDS.

  • i think the reason most moms do the best they can while carrying their babies, is because you never really know what would have been had care been better. would that child have been smarter? would that child have been taller or stronger or healthier? the same things have to be asked when we make all of our choices...breast milk or formula, all natural foods, or processed foods. often we say...i was raised this way and i am fine...but like i said, we will never know what we might have lost.
