Avatar f tn Please discuss it with your dr and maybe he/she can help you ladies with some alternatives to help stop. I'm not here to judge but we all know the statistics of harmful effects of smoking. I wish you all the strength to be able to quit.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn Reguardless of there being no legit proof of it causing anything wrong with the baby, and family smoking during their pregnancies and baby's being fine, there is not a chance in hell that I would take for my own satisfaction. My baby girl is my world and she isn't even here yet. I could never forgive myself, ever, if there was something I could do to prevent something that may of gone wrong with my baby because of my selfish acts.
Avatar f tn Idk if any of these things are solely a result of smoking weed during pregnancy but i do think that smoking weed does effect the baby. Especially during early pregnancy when the babys brain is developing. Smoking weed is no better than smoking cigarettes because when smoking both you're inhaling smoke and like my doctor tells me whatever i experience the baby experience. Granted the baby isn't exactly breathing the same air that you're breathing but you're still polluting their air ways.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I also watched the effects of smoking had on an unborn baby on YouTube and that was really eye opening. And people saying that it is more harm to the baby quitting cold turkey is absolute rubbish!! Baby will benefit hugely from mum stopping smoking, every time you smoke a cigarette the poor baby's heartbeat beats so fast, it already beats faster than mums as it is so small. I wish people would do their research before commenting on things like this!
Avatar n tn - 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
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn i was short tempered and i wanted to smoke so badly..so i googled the effects of smoking on my baby and it terrified me..a baby cnt say no and no matter what anyone says it can effect your baby as it passes through your bloodstream into the baby via the placenta. That was enough to frighten me into not touching one again. Maybe you could research the same. With my first baby i was a selfish 18 yr old with a whole world of troubles and smoked all the way through my pregnancy..
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Just think about all the other medications we allow into our bodies that can cause birth defects or neurological challenges for the baby vs. smoking pot which has very very few side effects for the baby. The helpfulness of this herb really does outweigh the risk.. Especially compared to all the other "medications" we blindly pump into our bodies :) Nooowwwww as for using a vape vs. using a pipe or bong or whatever.
290867 tn?1333572878 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.
1676653 tn?1391043545 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
6814174 tn?1385052560 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.
Avatar f tn 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...
Avatar f tn you should read all the possible side effects of smoking while pregnant and what it can do to your child. Nausea is something almost all woman experience while pregnant and we just deal with it the doctor recommended ways. Try tums, eat 6 small meals instead of 3 big ones a day, try taking famotidine (pepcid) tablets. Just my opinion though. If you feel it's honestly that bad you should consult your ob and talk to them about smoking and if anything else could help that you are unaware of.
280700 tn?1210287416 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!
Avatar n tn 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).
1160836 tn?1332333769 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.....
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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!
