  • yes it can harm your baby since it is 2nd hand smoke. Thats inconsiderate of them to smoke around you.

  • Yes, it can harm your baby, and you should really worry when the baby arrives. My husband and I were both smokers (been smoke free since May 22nd 2007, yay!) and from day one we smaked outside after the baby arrived. Nobody was allowed to smoke in the house or around the baby.

  • not while its in you but once that baby comes out dont let smoke near it because it will hurt it my ex in laws would always try and smoke around my baby and called me a bitch when i would storm off telling them how inconsiderate thay are...dont worry untill it comes out though i smoked weed for the first four months and ciggs through the pregnancy and it dosent really hurt them but i wouldnt suggest it.

  • "WELL YOU SHOULDN'T GOT PREGNANT BECAUSE I NEED MY WEED" --- If I had a dollar for every time I heard this.. I would be a really rich woman.


    6 packs a day????   I agree with Jspy ^  YOU ARE AN IDIOT.

  • The ciggarette smoke can harm your baby. I wouldn't worry too much about the weed, as long as their not hotboxing you 24/7. You should move out of the house. Their's 3 against one and I don't think that their gonna stop for you. If you don't live with them then stay away from the house. If you have to stay at the house for whatever reason, then your SOL. This is your baby, you need to protect it, no one has to do anything for you. It's a part of life. Do you also plan on having the baby live in the house too?
