  • Neither! I did both during all 4 of my pregnancies. I had 4 full term perfectly healthy babies. None of them have asthma or any lung problems at all. They were not low birth weight. I am not proud or boastful about it and I don't suggest anybody start doing these things during a pregnancy. But don't try to bash people who do.

  • both...

  • smoking. and just because one person has a perfectly healthy baby despite smoking while pregnant doesn't mean it will hold true for another person. My cousin smoked with all her kids and they all suffered ill effects in the long run despite being "healthy" babies.

  • Nothing inherently wrong with drinking softdrinks--just don't over do it!

  • agree with ashes both....... got to drink alot of water to stay hydrated a soda is okay every once in a while for you' but not for the baby.
