The best thing you can do for your baby is to leave. A pothead partner that uses every hour of every day is completely and utterly worthless. Do yourself a favor, wise up and leave. Otherwise, you are permitting your life and your baby's life to be ruined.
Ditto to who_is_this
My dad was a pothead, and a total loser. Not only that, but he was more evil when his supply was low. You're better off alone than with a junkie. As far as any physical effects by way of his sperm, there have been studies done, but nothing was terribly conclusive. You may be able to look it up. Don't breathe his air right now. There is proof that it can have negative effects for you and baby ranging from hypoxia to birth defects and learning problems.
I completely disagree here, the guy is not a murderer, while I dont think it is a good idea to smoke pot 24/7 it doesnt mean this guy is an evil person you should run from, talk to him, maybe he could make some allowances, compromise, you and this guy made a magical thing together dont blow it away through other peoples judgement.
just b/c 2 people have sex, doesn't make the result "magical." lets keep in mind that the original poster is also trying desperately to figure out her exact conception date. for everyones sake, i hope it's the other guy's baby...unless he's on harder drugs than pot.
Well, now that I think about it emcy2, you are completely right. A person shouldn't leave her boyfriend just because he smokes pot illegally, every hour of every day. It's a wonderful environment for a woman and a new baby. I should really have my head examined for saying what I did. Jeez, what was I thinking? He could change as magically as they magically created the child!
I guess she shouldn't worry about the illegality of having pot in her home with a baby either. Or the residual on his clothes when he holds the baby. Or leaving the baby for a few minutes with Mr. Wonderful/Stoner. I'm sure if he nods off, the baby will be very safe in a magical sort of way. I mean, it's not like pot alters your abilities in judgement or anything!
Sorry to the original poster. emcy2 is right. Chronic excessive pot smoking won't hurt a thing. Its a magical world after all!
