If youve quit you should be okay. Take ur prenatals and just have a healthy lifestyle. The first trimester is very important but the idea is you were able to quit and that will definately play a big part in this. Good luck!

Hunny my cousins ex wife smoked with both there kids. One is a normal little brat hes sooo mean lol. The other has had a eating disorder he's 3 and doesn't talk much at all. he's skinny as hell. And he eats liquids. But he's such a little sweetheart. Idk if he's like that cause she smoked or if maybe something in his body didn't develop right.  U should be fine especially if u quit. I know another woman that did crack her whole pregnancy which I am against but her baby came out just fine

Now that you've quit you should be okay but know that if continued it can cause a lot of different health problems so right now you're okay but stay strong and do not begin again

There are no proven birth defects due to smoking marijuana. Marijuana is all natural substance that is merely illegal. My previous doctor prescribed medical Marijuana to some of his patients for severe morning sickness. Some of the prescribed medications for morning sickness are more harmful than marijuana. The issue however, is that it's illegal. That poses a problem if you're tested at birth or prior to and your state laws may require such. This could pose a potential issue with child protective services and having your child taken from your care.

Sarahk is right about that. But its best you quit. First trimester is crucial. Get your vitamins and dont smoke anymore. Any smoke cant be good for a baby. Take care.

Youll be fine. You could ask your doctor if your that worried. I know plenty of women who smoked during pregnancy and there kids are perfect.
