U Surely Can!: But why oh why would you do it? I don't know of anyone who would intentionally harm their child. I don't know of anyone who would feed their child a toxic substance.

In a way, yes: Some of the toxins you inhale with every cigarette will enter your blood and travel thru the umbilical cord to baby.It is well documented that the nicotine effects the small blood vessels of the placenta, narrowing their size. Smokers have babies a half pound lighter than non smokers.Other studies show the kids more likely to be smokers later in life. ...Read more

Can me and my boyfriend get pregnant if he smokes weed daily and we've use the pullout method for about 2 months?

Can me and my boyfriend get pregnant if he smokes weed daily and we've use the pullout method for about 2 months?

Yes: Yes, without a doubt. If you wish to avoid pregnancy, I recommend consistent use of an effective method of contraception: condoms, birth control pills, birth control patches, depo shots, an intra-uterine-device, or a skin implant. Pulling out is better than not pulling out, but you can definitely get pregnant while doing this. ...Read more

Have faith: Like it or not, men get a bit of a pass on the issue of bad habits and effect on a baby.They generate millions of sperm from stem cells, and these can be individually effected by such habits, but the healthiest sperm are the best swimmers and most likely to get to the egg first.Once conception occurs, dads habits/behavior fade into the background and it is the mom who provides the environment. ...Read more

Traces of smoke: Smokers get traces of smoke residue in their clothing and hair, and carry this inside. These can be irritating, and in asthmatics can trigger an asthma attack. However, it's not as bad as if they smoked around you, and it's unlikely to be harmful to the fetus. They can reduce this problem by wearing a particular garment over their clothes when they smoke, then taking this off when they're done. ...Read more
