I live in Virginia where it's also illegal and I know a few women who were told by their doctors to continue smoking it if it helps with nausea/morning sickness and as long as it isn't a constant thing.

I personally know two moms with sons who did it continuously through out the day for the entire pregnancy only because they were previous smokers. Both sons we believe aren't developing like they should. At 4 years of age they haven't learned any words. Their friend did the same because they said their sons were fine so we'll see how her son does when he gets that age.



I personally wouldn't do it. I was smoking cigarettes but what quit cold turkey when I found out I was pregnant.

I am an avid pot-smoker. I fully support legalizing marijuana on a federal level (although I doubt that will happen), I did smoke when I was pregnant with my first child thinking it wouldn't affect the baby any and blah blah.. but my daughter has ADHD and some behavioral problems as well. The doctor said some are contributed to high stress levels during pregnancy (I was young, and going through a LOT of shit with the father) but some of it was because I SMOKED the weed. as I got farther along it also inhibited my breathing slightly . I was already big and having trouble with the breathing due to where the baby was residing, but smoking would just increase it. I advise any woman wanting to smoke weed, to either vape or make edibles, it's less harmful to your lungs, fetus, and all around future development of that fetus.



Also, as I said a lot was contributed to the high stress levels I had while pregnant with her. It has more of an impact than you would think. I now have 3 children with my 4th on the way, and I've not smoked weed with the others and have had less stressful pregnancies and my other 2 are mild mannered, well behaved, no ADHD or behavior issues at all.



It may not seem like it, but these are definitely things to consider when you're doing something to your body because its not just your body/mind your affecting. I support marijuana, I support vaping/edibles, I do not support smoking it while pregnant..its less risky than pharmaceuticals but still has side effects that i wouldn't want to put on an unborn baby.
