Hi All

What is the limit to smoking and drinking while pregnant?

How much is TOO much?

If you care about your pregnancy you should avoid any harm that can potentially harm your unborn child.

Most docs say if it is bad for you then it is bad for baby. Smoking there is no amount that is good for either you or the baby. For drinking many docs are now saying that a woman should not drink during pregnancy. Before some docs said that having 1 drink on occasion was ok, but they are now finding that that may still affect the baby. A good example of how alcohol affects the baby is to put an egg in a glass of alcohol and what what it does. It will dry up the egg. So I would say best advise is to not drink....better safe then sorry.
