At least with the e cig it's just vapor, and no smoke, even though there's a chance of effects from the nicotine itself.
To my horror, she told me that she smoked a 1/2 pack a day for the first trimester, when she went to find out the sex of the baby, the nurse got offended when she left to go and smoke, so the nurse hooked up the heart moniter to her stomach, and told her to puff away.
A thread just for all of you in the first trimester. First trimester is up until week 14 of pregnancy. Feel free to discuss all of your 1st trimester questions and discussions here!
At least nicotine is a known drug as is the effects of smoking during the first trimester. I would take my chances with the known before I would Chantix. It's a class C drug which means it could cause problems. Good luck....I know exactly how you feel.
Effects of smoking while pregnant Smoking in pregnancy can affect your baby, not just before birth, but also in the future. Here are some of the effects of smoking while pregnant. Smoking raises the levels of carbon monoxide in your bloodstream. This reduces the amount of oxygen available to your baby. When you smoke, harmful chemicals reach your baby. Nicotine constricts the blood vessels on your side of the placenta, which means oxygen is passed over less effectively to the baby.
- Ectopic pregnancy – this is pregnancy outside the uterus, usually in the fallopian tube - Foetal death – death of the baby in the uterus (stillbirth) - Spontaneous abortion – known as miscarriage - Problems with the placenta, including early detachment from the uterine wall and blocking the cervical opening (placenta previa) - Premature rupture of the membranes - Premature labour Effects of smoking during pregnancy on the foetus: (Every time a pregnant woman smokes a cigarette, her unb
This is STRAIGHT from a breast feeding organization website "THC will show up in the mothers breast milk 8 times more than her blood stream. The baby will excrete thc in their urine for up to 3 weeks, it can also cause lack of latch. Also the long term effects for a child could be slow development in the first year." My opinion is don't put your baby at risk, you've gotten this far and are doing great!
And I have a problem, I have been smoking Oxycodone 30 MG on the tin foil for about a year now, during the first trimester I have not been smoking Oxy maybe a Hit or two here and there and i dont do it everyday. latley Ive been smoking but still not alot, maybe 6 pills a week. My boyfriend has them perscribed to him and gets about 160 a month, and when he gets his scripts i smoke about 8 during the weekend. I know what i am doing is wrong and i feel so guilty for doing this to my baby girl.
First of all, smoking anything during pregnancy deprives the fetus of oxygen. Just as smoking tobacco is discouraged in pregnant women, so is smoking marijuana. Smoking any type of substance interferes with the fetus's blood supply. This can mean the fetus doesn't get enough oxygen, and s/he may be born smaller in both weight and length.
Your First Visit Your should call and schedule your first examination during the first 6 to 8 weeks of your pregnancy, or when your menstrual period is 2 to 4 weeks late. Doing so now helps your health care provider estimate the duration of your pregnancy and predict your delivery date. During your first visit, you can expect to have a full physical, including a pelvic and rectal examination.
for the time that she did stop smoking, every time she had a craving she'd pop a piece of candy in her mouth. Takes a few times to figure out one to calm the craving I'm sure. She also chewed regular gum. Not any of the stop smoking gum.. Or even would eat popcicles... or a very small piece of chocolate. Now she's back to smoking like it never happened.
I say that to say this. Yesterday we had a work Christmas party and we all went out to eat. One of the girls is 4 months preggo. Just a lil history on her she had suffered from numerous miscarriages. She has a 12 year old but every time getting preggo after that it has ended in miscarriage. You would think someone who has suffered from this would do anything in there power to try to be as cautious as you can when it comes to your pregnancy. Last night she ordered a sangria.
Because of experience with other members of the benzodiazepine class, Klonopin is assumed to be capable of causing an increased risk of congenital abnormalities when administered to a pregnant woman during the first trimester. Because use of these drugs is rarely a matter of urgency in the treatment of panic disorder, their use during the first trimester should almost always be avoided.
My friend quit smoking when she was 7 months when they tested her baby's umbilical cord blood it was in her system and they reported her to cps...
HEY THERE MY DARLING IM 12 WEEKS PREGNANT NOW AND TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH IF I WAS YOU START BY SLOWING DOWN BECAUSE IF YOU ARE GOING TO START FEELING DEPRESSED ITS NOT GOING TO HELP YOUR BABY, ALSO TRY NOT TO THINK OF MIS MY SISTER SMOKED THROUGH HER PREGNANCY, ME I AM SMOKING AND I AM TRYING TO CUT DOWN BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY IM NOT GOING TO STRESS MY SELF OVER, IF PEOPLE ARE TELLING YOU HOW HARMFULL AND ALL THIS STUFF IGNORE IT.
And honestly your excuse of only smoking to help with nausea and sleeping is a bunch of BS. They have really good nausea medicine to help... and honey, sleeping doesn't get real unbearable until 7-8 months. You think its bad now.. you're in for it. If you care about your baby at all, you will quit.. As every pregnancy is different, some babies will be born affected by marijuana and some wont be.
Also beware that many of the other side effects of clomid nausea, tender breasts, some cramping are also signs of early pregnancy. Good luck and SSBD to you!
you'd see moms smoking back in the day when no one knew the harmful effects. well, through research, we now know what it can do. now, they even say to avoid second hand smoke pregnant or not. maybe the baby turns out fine, or low birth weight but again, what about later on? that's how i think when it comes to stuff like you are asking about. you just never know so why take the chance? i wonder if you called the nail salon and asked how you could take them off yourself? (well ventalated area).
My doctor thought it was enviormental (exercise, stress...etc) as I just started to go do body pump right around that time. Every cycle before that was 30-31 days to the day!! So we will see.....
Thank you ladies, I do use tobacco products to smoke and that may be the addictive part of it, I will reduce my smoking to just a pipe so no tobacco effects will reach my embryo. I most definitely plan to quit by the time this trimester is over So I will be clean at birth. I can't see taking promethazine while pregnant as I may just sleep the whole day and night away and gain excess lbs..no thank you.
I totally agree with alot you have to say. This is my first pregnancy and I wasjust talking to my mom about this the other day, bawling my eyes out, talking to my bf too. If you've read my posts I've been diagnosed with Chlamydia which now has beena week since taking the treatment-i get tested on the 13th-and i also have bacterial vaginosis.
My doctor also told me that at the first sign of my next pregnancy to come in, get the pregnancy confirmed and get another RHogam shot just in case my blood mixes with the fetus at all during the first trimester. From then on, I won't need another shot until I am at 28 weeks gestation and then again after delivering if the child is RH-positive. Kind of sucks, but just shows how very important it is to know about your body. I hope this information is helpful!
my mom was also a smoker when she got pregnant with me but THANK GOD my grandma stepped in and told her to knock it off. she quit smoking during her pregnancy and while breastfeeding me. of course she started up after that.
Bad M/S during the first 1/2 of pregnancy, and lingering m/s or no appetite during the rest of her pregnancy. She had a problem eating enough and putting on weight. Her NURSE at her doctors office suggested it to her, and she said it helped alot. And it turns out her mother also did it a little for the same reasons when pregnant with her. (like 2X a week or so only in the AM to boost hunger) I have NOT smoked it during pregnancy, but have seriously considered it.
If you added up all the wine I drank during the pregnancy, it would probably add up to a total of 4 glasses (and i'm 23 weeks). I know some people who allow themselves one glass of wine or one beer a week. I know others who won't touch a drop. This is a very personal decision, and I am sure many people will share their opinions on this.
Category A Adequate and well-controlled studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus in the first trimester of pregnancy (and there is no evidence of risk in later trimesters). Category B Animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women.
but they seem to interfere sometimes causing very unusual what I would call si-fi dreams or etheric dreams basically other relms with things I've never seen in this world or life. During the day, if I nap I find the dreams are like of another life, reality or like living another life. At night, sometimes the same other times just mundane. In my case, sometimes prophetic, like meeting someone in dreamland and then a few days later meeting them in what we call real life.
It just seems ridiculous to be pregnant -- we weren't even trying and my husband didn't even have an orgasm -- he limped out during that encounter (around my birthday). So it seems kind of like a joke. I'm about ready to try a test again -- still no period and almost 2 weeks late now. I keep reading how it's almost impossible at my age to get pregnant naturally. Any comments?
) He's super excited for this cycle too! This is actually the first time he's had a good feeling, I think just b/c we have so many eggs! How's your 2ww going? I hope you get a great supirse soon!
