So are you going to ignore us because we don't agree with you? Are your going to ignore us because we didn't abide by your terms of posting in this thread?
I'll let you know now that if you flag any of these posts I (as a moderator) will ignore them as they don't violate any of the THUMPS guidelines. What you have asked is borderline though.
Enjoy your discussion while I am sleeping. The joy of being on the other side of the world.

Jodi is right, you can't tell people what they can and can't respond to.
If you're happy with putting your baby at risk then go for it. That doesn't give you the right to dictate what others do.
To answer your post, I have not smoked weed while pregnant.

You can't dictate to people that they can only answer if they smoke weed. This is a public forum, and smoking weed while you are pregnant is a potential health hazard for your baby. People WILL have something to say about that.

You can't dictate who does and doesn't respond... or what they say as long as it doesn't violate thumps.
I have never and will never smoke anything... pregnant or not... as I have an extreme sensitivity to second and even third hand smoke that even just one brief whiff will have me coughing uncontrollably. I couldn't imagine putting a developing fetus through that extreme lack of oxygen.

Krystal, you're not going to get 'only women who smoked weed' because of the reasons that the previous ladies have already mentioned. You might have got sympathy if you'd asked about how to quit taking weed because you'd found out you were pregnant, but you didn't. Your question makes it pretty clear that you either have been smoking while pregnant or intend to.
Smoking weed harms YOU and harms the unborn. You may like to think that it is a 'soft' drug, no worse than alcohol, blah blah, as I have heard from many marijuana addicts. The truth of the matter is that you are smoking it, filling your lungs with carcinogens from the smoking that are no less serious than those involved in tobacco smoke.
Quite apart from the considerable risk of damage to your baby while unborn, you will also risk damaging his or her health due to the smoke in your house and in your clothing. I just had to kick out my 21 year old sister in law from living with us because she was smoking weed in my house when I have a asthmatic pre-schooler whose lungs collapsed when she was born at 28 weeks and who is extremely susceptible to respiratory problems leading to hospital treatment for pneumonia. The smoke alone is harmful.
So please, if you are currently pregnant and smoking weed, stop. THE most important part of your role as a parent is that you are able to put your child's needs, safety and well being ahead of your own. If you are unable to do that, whether by putting yourself in a program, getting support and help or however, then maybe you should think about giving this child up for adoption and not getting pregnant again.

IF you must due to extreme nausea or lack of appetite, do not smoke high THC content or anything that was grown with potent nutrient. Old school Shake with low THC would be best and of course, one toke from a vaporizer, not a whole joint unless absolutely needed.
There are risks everywhere we look; from nail polish to hair dye, to exhaust from all those lovely vehicles.
Cannabinoids are NOT addictive so do your research before listening to any of the 'judgemental' women. (though many are compassionate) thank goodness for that. Indeed.
Mean little girls often grow up into mean little women so take no heed. You do what you feel is right. Make it organic, moderate and for goodness sake, use a vaporizer.
Cannabis is NOT in the same ballpark as Alcohol or Tobacco and anyone that tells you otherwise is sheerly ignorant...

Shannon, your children are 4 1/2 years and 2 months old. I'd hardly qualify that as being assured all is okay with your children. They are yet to get through to adulthood. You still can't say what harm you have done to them, because much of it is long term.
That is all.

I smoked weed throughout both of my pregnancies amd my girls are two of the smartest,brightest children around. They both weighed 7'9 ounces and healthy as can be. Its ur choice to do whatwver u want during pregnancy and ur choice alone.

Don't do it. Why would you? I have smoked plenty in my life, but during pregnancy? Hell no. Why would you take the chance, just to get high for a couple of hours? If you are that dependent upon it, you need to seek professional help. If it is because you have some disease or for discomfort, talk with your doctor or midwife about other options. Come on now. You know better than this. Right? Please tell me you do.
