Some mamas on this board have been really interested in hearing your opinion if you have used marijuana during pregnancy and what your opinion is on what type of affect if may or may not had on your child. This is for those who had not smoked cigs, drank alcohol, or participated in any other "drug" during their pregnancy so we can get an idea on the effects of marijuana solely. Also up for discussion here if you'd like, or you can add to this thread: <a href="http://mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=553755&page=3" target="_blank">http://mothering.com/discussions/sho...=553755&page=3</a><br><br>

Oh, yeah, so you don't feel hesitant about voting truly, I made it so that the voters names are not displayed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I didn't smoke mj while pregnant, but I felt bad you didn't have any responses. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br><br>
Imho, you have to weigh the factors of smoking while you're pregnant. I've heard about some women with morning sickness so bad that they can't keep a thing down their entire pregnancy, and the baby does not thrive in the womb. In that particular case, I think smoking mj to calm your stomach and make you a bit hungry is a good option. If it's just for the sake of smoking, then I for one think it's not the best idea. Smoke entering your body while you're pregnant is not going to be the best thing for your baby in most cases.<br><br>
I hope someone else has more insight for you...

I smoked, it helped, I'd do it again.<br>
Short sweet story. Fat sweet baby.<br><br>
Considering that a study was just published determining the toxicity level of marijuana to be approximately 1500 pounds in one sitting for humans, I have no doubt that the comparatively tiny amount I've consumed in my entire life has been nothing but beneficial to my wellbeing and that of my baby.<br><br>
Flame away. I lost my lighter anyway.

I didn't smoke at all while I was pregnant so I didn't vote but my roommates did a LOT so it was kind of hard to get away from it until we moved when I was a few months preggo. DS has a LOT of problems, but I don't *think* MJ has anything to do with it. Who knows.

I smoked up quite a bit before I realized I was pregnant with my first ds. I was in college at the time, and definitely NOT trying to get pregnant. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> He's absolutely fine. He has Asperger's, but that's genetic. He is also a mathematical genious, but again, I think that's genetic. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I admit, I was freaked about it and asked my doc about it. She said he's be fine, it wasn't known to cause problems, like cigarettes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
