Why I am the way I am/
What about my Baby??

I know I have a bad immune system because my mother smoked during her pregnany then my aparents smoked when i was little (my dad until i was a teen). They didn't know any better then....but these kids today doing all these things during a pregnancy - FOR SHAME.

What about meth? Anyone know what that does to an unborn baby? What about alcohol? I know a few drinls won't hurt but fetal alcohol syndrome kicks in a what point? How many drinks would a mother have to ingest? What about pot?
These are all things I will have to find out more about if we are going to adopt - these things come up.......
Anyone have any ifo on this stuff?

ANY AMMOUNT OF ALCOHOL IS BAD FOR THE BABY. MY ADOPTED SON WAS EXPOSED TO ALCOHOL AND METH DURING PREGNANCY. IT CONTRIBUTED TO HIS TWIN SISTERS DEATH AT 6 MONTHS OLD. HE IS 6 YRS OLD AND FIGHTS EVERY DAY TO STAY ALIVE AND FUNCTION IN HIS ENVIROMENT.
