If you're pregnant or planning to get pregnant, there are many things you can do to give your baby a healthy start: Regular prenatal visits along with laboratory testing, ultrasounds, prenatal vitamins and immunizations (like the flu shot and whopping cough booster).

See below: Anything that you are exposed to your baby is exposed to. The chemicals that get you high are also getting the baby high. This can lead to problems with addiction and other brain problems. Huffing actually deprives your body of oxygen, and hence deprives your baby of oxygen. The brain needs a lot of oxygen, so i would stop this behavior completely, even if you weren't pregnant. ...Read more
Depends: Huffing volatile chemicals (glue, paint, gasoline) leaves distinct odors on the breath and clothing, often stains around the mouth and nose. People who have been huffing act "drunk" - speech is slurred, coordination is impaired, balance is off and they may be disinhibited and even violent. Ether and nitrous huffing can cause death by suffocation, as can using plastic bags over ones head to huff. ...Read more
Depends on what you: Are huffing. The usual suspects - airplane glue, paint, thinners - can contain toluene or benzene products, and can cause widespread damage - to brain, heart, kidneys. Liver and bone marrow. Anything you huff reduces the oxygen level in blood, and if done chronically can reduce iq. Heart arrhythmias and sudden death, as well as suffocation can occur. They can cause permanent damage and death. ...Read more

If this is you, and you are 50 years old, you may already have some. Get help. ...Read more
Usually a teenager: for one thing, highest use in the US is age 14-17, but worldwide huffing remains common in older kids and young adults. If you see them right afterwards, they appear pretty much like being drunk on alcohol - giddy, poor balance/speech, disinhibited (can range from happy to violent). There may be a sweet/solvent-like smell on their breath.Discoloration around mouth/nose if they also sniff paint. ...Read more
Not likely, but: possible. It is bad idea to sniff glue or paint, because the effects do more harm than good. Brain damage is typically seen with chronic long-term use, but there are some cases of one time sniffing with irretrievable damage. The fact that glue or paint huffing causes irreversible brain, heart, kidney and lung damage. Rec.: talk to your PCP for more information and help. ...Read more
