iv been lookin on the internet for how to live a healthy lifestyle whyle pregnant and iv been doin all thease bad things , before i knew i was pregnant, and now im worried that i have harmed the baby. iv been smokeing and drinking and haveing caffine and not takeing folic acid.i am really worried. i just want to know if i have anything to worrie about.
From what I understand, the placenta doesn't start taking over until about the 10th week. So, progesterone is what supplies the baby until then. What you have done up until now may not affect the baby. Make sure you stay healthy from now on.
most people dont find out there pregnant til about 5-6 wks so im sure a ton of people still do stuff that you shouldnt while pregnant cuz they had no idea they were pregnant. i was on an SSRI and xanax when i found out i was pregnant. obviously i was taken off of them when i found out at 5 wks but at my dr visits he always tells me the baby looks good so i guess it didnt effect anything. if you were doin hard drugs then there could be a problem but if it was just smoking cigarettes and drinking a little it should be fine
When I found out I was pg with Ds I was almost 9 weeks and I was doing really bad stuff. I smoked, drank,did my share of drugs,caffine, bad diet, not sleeping basically partying like crazy all the time. But the day I found I was pg is the day it all stopped I know how hard it is to stop smoking but take it one day at a time and cut back each day and before long you want want them anymore and there is some women that smoke the whole time and is perfectly fine. I still drink caffine and have my days of not eating right I just limit myself and my baby seems to be fine and the first one was fine too.
