Is that harmful for the baby or not?
Dunno, that's golf maaaaaaaannnnnnn.
Speak among yourselves
no carbon monoxide, tar etc in e-cigarette
Can that hurt the fetus?
But nicotine is one of the less harmful substances in tabacco
Anyway, this woman was drinking and smoking and she's six months pregnant. It were horrible. But the woman smoking an e-cigarette, that's a bit different.
dunno what effect that would have on baby, probably be fine
as in, what comes out of them?
why theo? WHY?
(Did TheoGB delete a post of his in this thread?)
'typical of dem bitches to be dem selfish selves hear me' and then linked to a Guardian comment section with a similar but more lengthy post from an account called PowPowTHEO'D (his guardian account?) then it all got deleted (sean?)
I accidentally left a friend's full name in C&P'ing from our Skype convo.
I was posting that comment from the Dairy review in the Guardian of that utterly nuts mother.
(I was about to do it anyway)
(I don't have the link to hand any more.)
but I remember hearing that quitting cold turkey can in some cases be quite bad for the mother and subsequently quite bad for the baby.
Not sure about snoking, but basically, anything which puts an expectant mother under extreme stress or causes depressoin is capable of having bad effects on the foetus and I guess every decisoin to change behavioour at the risk of triggering other problems must be carefully weighed up.
(the surprise was that there were quite a few)
this aint the 50's, bro
not quite sure where that came from.
also: probably fine for the baby if you just smoke right before birth
or is that just pseudo-science ?
remember reading there was no solid evidence either way?
but from a public information point of view, advising expectant mothers to not drink at all is the safest course.
Smoking very bad
About 8 weeks at the moment. She's really struggled to quit smoking and it's causing quite a lot of friction.
I did think that it would be more difficult for her to quit when she got pregnant so she tried earlier in the year. She had hypnotherapy and I kind of thought she had quit but I found out she hadn't and had been having sneaky fags for ages and didn't want to tell me.
No problem I though, I'm sure she'll quit when she's pregnant and didn't want to stress her out so left it. anyway, she carried on when she found out she was pregnant, and carried on not telling me.
I got quite annoyed but confronted her about it in as nice a way as possible. She admitted she had trouble quitting and had had a few fags a day and way trying to quit. But, as an ex smoker, it was quite easy to work out whether she had or not and again she carried on smoking and lying about it.
The problem is when she's at work she is in the car a lot and can have one whenever but she seems to be alright at home. I imagine she's having a couple per day. Although we've just been away for a weekend and she's had none so she might be alright now. I dunno.
Thing is even if she has now 'quit' I'm actually quite worried that some damage is already done :(
THE PLOT THICKENS........
Pack a day at least. We are both small, and although I have always had different health problems, my brother has always been pretty healthy.
My mum said that she thought getting pregnant would stop her smoking and drinking but it never did. She would have been getting through a pack a day. I was 6lb, which was a bit small I guess, but no real harm done. Same for my brother too. She likes to play it up, saying she was trying to keep our weight down.
But that's not to say it's a good thing - guess she, me & my bro were lucky. It can have some serious effects on babies.
my mum also used to do aerobics with a cig on one side of the room, sherry on the other. few stretches and strides over to one, back over to the other. The 70's, man.
but people don't seem to realise tha a) not every pregnancy is planned or 100% a positive thing and b) addictive behaviour can be very difficult to break, especially taking into account the hormonal mess that many pregnant women become. There also could be all sorts of mental health issues at play and to judge everyone on a black and white basis is extremely short sighted and a bit judgmental/ meddlesome.
as they go through nicotine withdrawal as soon as they leave the womb.
not sure about lasting damage though - almost certainly less bad than regular cigs.
smoked like a fiend throughout pregnancy and that person in question has grown up with life-threatening health problems that continue to recur in the most serious fashion. in essence her life has been spent largely in hospital since being a pre-teen.
whether it's related or not i can't say but you have to wonder.
