Obviously, definitely not as unhealthy as smoking yourself, but most physicians are going to recommend that you avoid 2nd hand smoke when pregnant.

How likely is it to get pregnant with someone who smokes weed/cigarettes & drinks almost every other day? Give me accurate percentage, a straight answ

Likely: While there are studies that suggest a possible decrease in fertility with all those drugs, don't count on it. If there is not some other infertility problem, you have an 80-90% chance of pregnancy within a year, with regular sex. However nice he might be, drinking is not the best way to approach having a baby and getting good support. Use birth control (imo). ...Read more

My bf knows I'm pregnant and wants to keep it but he's influencing me to smoke weed, cigarettes, and remain on seroquel. I feel like he doesn't care?

Bad relationship: Substance use during pregnancy can be harmful to the developing baby and should be avoided at all costs. Frankly your boyfriend seems irresponsible and abusive. There are other partners out there and i would question the long term committment of this boyfriend to either you or the baby. ...Read more
