Vent - Smoking SIL just had a low birth weight baby - Page 2

post #21 of 23
I had a sil once (when I was married to my x) who smoked all through her pg and got mad at anyone who told her it was bad. She actually said to me once, "the doctor said smoking wont hurt my baby".

Her tiny little five pound baby was born and the placenta came out BLACK. She was horrified and asked me, "what do you think caused that?" I just looked at her like DUH.

She would go outside to smoke so the baby didnt breath it (although shed take the naked baby outside with her no matter how cold) then go right inside and breastfeed her. Cuz nicotine couldnt possibly get into breastmilk, right? :

I had a thread not too long ago about a good friend of mine trying to quit smoking when pg. She was super addicted, too (last I talked to her a couple weeks ago she had quit and is doing well even though it is hard).

I understand how addictive smoking is, and try really hard not to judge pg women who are truly trying and might have a couple per day, and truly making an effort. BUt I have little tolerance for people that don't give a rat's arse and keep smoking regardless. Even worse are these stories I'm hearing that people smoke ON PURPOSE to have a small baby or whatnot!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!! How awful!!

It's just really sick and sad that someone would be that willingly ignorant about this issue.
