  • Nah. Her life, her baby, her body. Her choice.
    I don't really find much disturbing.

  • Not as disturbing as one who drinks or does drugs or sleeps around or cant support her child or who drives wrecklessly....is it ideal? No. But I've seen women doing far worse whilst preggo....

  • There was this pregnant women I worked with a little while ago who used to stand outside on her breaks and smoke and the customers that were coming in would give her dirty looks and make comments and all she'd do is flip them off. I personally find it selfish, disgusting and even a form of child abuse.

  • Yea it is disturbing but I think of it this way. As long as she did have a cocktail next to her. And OH my biggest pet peeve METHADONE use. I mean I understand why they have to stay on it (because the stress of stopping would cause trauma to the fetus), but that little angel has to go thru HELL of detox because your dumb ass had to use heroin?!?!?! <> so yea it is disturbing but there is worse.

  • Personally, I'd raise an eyebrow... but I'm not about to go smack the cigarette out of her hand. You never know, it could be her one smoke for the day and not that I think that's okay, but it's better than smoking two packs a day. I wish we lived in a perfect world, but alas, be don't.

  • It bothers me, but it's not my place to say anything to her about it.
