Talk to your Doctor or a trusted Family Planning Physician OPENLY. Too many people are afraid to speak about these things and terrible results can occurr. The answer of "your baby could have brain damage" is a judgemental and an uneducated guess, though likely has good intentions behind it. No one wants to see an avoidable birth scenario. But it's best to speak with a medical professional. Even very healthy non-smoking, non-recreational drug users, and non-drinkers still have babies born with brain damage. So just having a child is never a 100% guarantee. The questions you need to clarify are: How often does he smoke? What quant_ties? Is this an addiction or a recreational usage? Has he currently suffered any medical trauma to his smoking? What medical studies are there providing examples of marijuana consumption affecting sperms ability to swim, survive, and any DNA structural affects? Though I'm sure Lucy means well, by using a mild scare tactic. If your husband won't give up the smoke while you are trying to conceive then seek out the answers to these questions. You might be suprised by what you find out. ~ Chi
