Second Hand Smoke Risky in Pregnancy

Genetic mutations have been found in cord blood of babies exposed to second hand smoke.

–I don’t think that my children have any genetic mutations, but when I was pregnant with E my father-in-law insisted on smoking in front of me because he was in his hotel room, where we had come to visit him. I was so nauseous we had to leave. And as soon as I sat down in the car, I threw up. R told me to stay and “throw up on him next time.” I don’t think he meant that, but he was seriously angry that his father insisted on smoking when I told him it was making me feel ill.
