My aunt was an addict and she quit when she was pregnant with her first two. And they came out perfectly fine. And she didn't stop with her third and he has cerbreal palsy (probably spelt wrong) and he was premature and only weighed 3 lbs 4 oz.

I think she needs to talk to her doctor about what could happen

Since she is this early it will probably not affect the baby too much but I agree she needs to talk to the doc so at delivery they will keep an eye out on signs for the baby...like breathing or what not.
