No!: Its not good for you or the baby . Its never a good idea to smoke weed from a health stand point let alone exspose your baby to it.
Dr. Heidi Fowler
Psychiatry 25 years experience
NO: Pulease don't do this. It isn't safe for your unborn baby.
Dr. John Munshower
Family Medicine 30 years experience
No: Agree with other docs, not safe for you or the developing baby inside you.
Dr. Bennett Machanic
Neurology 52 years experience
Need to know this: Marijuana has a mixed reputation, but we have found that adolescents who heavily use can develop emotional and cognitive issues which may stay with them for life. A baby inside of you would be far more vulnerable, so stay away from weed until after labor and delivery.

A 33-year-old member asked:

Why am I gaining so little weight in the 3rd trimester?

Focus on nutrition: Focus on nutrition instead of the scale. Most women will gain weight due to fluid retention but many gain too much from over eating. Are you eating a healthy diet and exercising daily? If so, the lack of weight gain is not important. Your baby appreciates your healthy lifestyle. A pregnant woman only needs about 300 calories more per day in the third trimester.

No: The earlier you seek prenatal care the better. If you have put off your first visit though now is the time. It is never too late.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to feel like I am breathing fast in the 3rd trimester?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Megan Bird

Depends: As the baby grows, it presses up on the lungs and certain muscles in the ribs relax and you may feel like you are taking shallower breaths more often. But if this happens suddenly or you feel like you are really struggling, you need to see someone right away. Blood clots in the lungs are also more common in pregnancy and can be very serious.
A 39-year-old member asked:

Why do people say the second trimester is the easiest?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Megan Bird

Better nausea and...: Usually in the second trimester your nausea has decreased but the discomfort and heaviness of the third trimester hasn't come yet. For a lot (but not all) the second trimester is slightly easier. I would never say that any part of pregnancy is easy.
