lost in Nova Scotia - July 13

i'm 37 yrs. old and 3mos. pregnant. my sister-in-law is 23 yrs. old and also preganant, she is addicted to pepsi soda and smokes and refuses to take it easy with both adictions. as well she thinks it's not really that important to be taking folic acid. i've tried to talk to my 30 yr. old brother and now they're not speaking to me. they tell me to mind my own business. i don't smoke, eat healthy and take my 1mg of folic acid daily.My question is i guess is do you have any advice to give me on how to handle this?

Unfortunately if they are not listening there isn't much you can do. I drink caffiene drinks because I get caffiene related migraines. I can't say anything to that. Try to think of it this way, lots of women had perfectly healthy babies before it was the craze to stop smoking, drinking caffiene, and taking vitamins. Maybe your family will be lucky. Sorry I'm not more help but I truly think there isn't anything you can do. The more you push the further you push them away.
