What would you like to do?
Im not a professional in anyway, but I have the same concern. My doctor told me that he has had patients that have taken steriods while pregnant, but he would prefer you DONT. He said it is possible that the steriods can mess with the growth of the baby. I'm 3 months pregnant and was taking prednisone for the first two months. Everything looks fine so far. The baby has only two arms and 10 fingers, it appears that there are no extra limbs or missing limbs. :O) I look forward to hearing from a doctor or someone who knows more info on this subject.

/// if you do not know for sure dont answer the question,/// Research studies have shown that women who use recreational drugs during pregnancy tend to use marijuana, thi…nking that it won't harm the fetus as much as other illegal substances. Although no clear-cut deformity or syndrome is known to occur due to marijuana use during pregnancy (as there is from alcohol use, for example, with fetal alcohol syndrome), there are possible dangers. 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. Smaller babies have a higher risk of other problems after birth, such as infections, severe jaundice, difficulty feeding, breathing problems, low blood sugar, difficulty regulating temperature, bleeding into the brain, and problems with vision. Secondly, marijuana can be "cut" with other substances. So the fetus may be unintentionally exposed to other potentially harmful substances in addition to marijuana. Marijuana can also be transmitted through breast milk. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC (the main active ingredient in marijuana), can be as much as 8 times higher in breast milk than in the mother's bloodstream. Babies whose mothers have used marijuana during pregnancy or while breastfeeding sometimes seem jittery and difficult to comfort. They may have some delay in the development of their motor skills, although studies have concluded that this delay may not be permanent. In any case, it is advisable not to smoke marijuana while breastfeeding. Since we're on the subject of substance use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, if you already drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes, it's in your baby's (and your) best health interests to stop when you are pregnant. During the nursing period, it's commonly recommended that mothers drink only modest amounts of alcohol, delay breastfeeding for 2 - 3 hours after drinking alcohol, and avoid exposing the baby to second-hand smoke. It should be noted that much of the research on the effects of prenatal exposure to marijuana has been complicated and inconclusive. This is mainly because it is difficult to isolate the effects of marijuana from other possible factors such as alcohol, other drug use, socioeconomic status, family structure, and mother's personality. All in all, the healthiest choice for you and your baby is to avoid using recreational chemicals, including marijuana, while pregnant. As difficult as it may be to change one's lifestyle, taking a break from smoking cigarettes and joints, and drinking alcohol and using other drugs, can help set your baby up for a long, healthy life.
Absolutely - yes. Look up Fetal Alcohol Syndrome - it can be devastating for a child all through their lives. Answer2: Children whose mothers drank even moderate amoun…ts of alcohol during pregnancy can suffer from certain disabilities, including behavioral problems and learning deficits. "You don't have to be an alcoholic to hurt your baby," remarks Professor Ann Streissguth, of the fetal alcohol and drug unit at the University of Washington, "you just have to be drinking enough and pregnant." The report of the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research Alcool-Effets sur la santé notes: "The absorption of alcohol is deleterious during the whole gestational period, and no minimal dose has ever been established below which there are no risks." Consequently, the wisest course for women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy may be not to drink any alcohol at all.*Alcohol is far worse for the developing fetus than any other abused drug" Women who are breast-feeding should be aware that after they drink, alcohol builds up in their breast milk. In fact, the concentration of alcohol in breast milk is often higher than in blood, since there is more water in the milk to absorb the alcohol than there is in blood.

The fetus will either become retarded and will not be able to do stuff normally or it will die young. I suggest if you dont want someone doesnt want their baby poisoned for hi…s/her life do not use meth. Boy, what a helpful and informative answer. You have no idea why the person asked that question. Maybe they have a relative who they are concerned about, or maybe they used before they knew they were pregnant. It's judgmental people like you who keep our drug policies in the draconian, unfair state they're in right now. Instead of persecuting those who need help, how about a little compassion? And you're wrong, incidentally: There's no long term data showing that a baby will "die young" or not be able to "do stuff normally" How about you back up your outrageous fear mongering statements with some actual data? As for the person who asked the question, I can't say with 100% certainty, but I believe that the only SLIGHT thing they've found with these babies is that they might be a bit more irritable as infants, and minor issues. And the fact is, most of those mothers drank alcohol or did other drugs as well, so it's hard to say what caused what.

Very dangerous! Deadly! I'm not trying to scare you but check with your doctor smoking while pregnant can cause death and ADHD Additional Answer: First of all yes it can be d…angerous to smoke during pregnancy, however it will not kill the fetus or cause ADHD. The problem of having a child with ADHD is far to common than it should be. It can cause low birth weight and ear infections for problems. The ADHD is to commonly diagnosed in children how just don't get enough time outside to play, their characterised as hyper children who can't sit still and pay attention. What child can sit still and pay attention, their kids.
