Thread: Smoking during pregnancy

  
  1. #1

    Smoking during pregnancy

    Smoking during pregnancy appears to raise the risk of miscarriage or premature labor. But the primary danger is hindered fetal growth. Nicotine depresses the appetite at a time when a woman should be gaining weight, and smoking reduces the ability of the lungs to absorb oxygen. The fetus, deprived of sufficient nourishment and oxygen, may not grow as fast or as much as it should.

    Being hypo also increases the risk of prem labour. No wonder my babe was born at 28 weeks

    PS not so sure about the smoking thing you know, there were loads of smokers when my mum was born and loads of happy bouncing full term babies. Have they proven this? The poster didn't cite any studies. (That would be 'well designed' studies and not just something to make people panic and go on the latest 'nicotine replacement' that big pharma has to offer.)

    Nicotine depresses the appetite
    just for the sake of argument why aren't all smokers slim?

    Less oxygen, agreed, depends on how heavy a smoker you are and how much damage you have already done to your lungs I should think.

    Sorry I am menopausal and very argumentative, bear with me
