  • I was. it was my first pregnancy and I didnt know I was pregnant. I was 17 and I smoked pot and donated blood (not at the same time). I found out a week later that I was pregnant and shortly after that I found out I was going to miscarry. I felt horrible and promised myself I wouldnt do drugs again, and I havent. I also said I wouldnt donate blood again unless I knew I wasnt preggers. Neither affected the pregnancy though, I have endo and just recently found out about it.

  • I am sooooo addicted to soda but I cut it out completely with my first pregnancy 11 years ago. This time around my doc said caffeine is ok in moderation but I still felt guilty because I could be drinking something better for the baby.

  • Nah I don't feel guilty I actually eat decently compared to before.

    Answer by Sahaira at 10:58 PM on Feb. 24, 2011

  • The first pregnancy I ate the letter and then some ...and my son was perfect.
    I am a little more lax this time around...and I don't know why...but I'm really craving cheese and dairy...and fresh mozzarella...even though it's not an "approved" food.
    Sometimes, we have to go with our instinct/intuition ...
    also...I've had fast food 4 times already...I feel REALLY guilty about that.
