When I found out that I was pregnant with my little girl, I
was ecstatic. I was concerned that I would not be able to have children,
because of cysts on my ovaries, and because I am afflicted with
endometriosis (which was helped by smoking marijuana. ) But thankfully I was
pregnant, and happy I was, until morning sickness came about. It did not take too long, and when it hit, it was like a ton
of bricks in my stomach, all of the time.
No food looked appealing to me, and when I could bring myself to eat,
I would throw it up immediately afterward, sometimes during.
But I was a trooper, and I would eat again and again, until the food
I had recreationally smoked marijuana before I got pregnant,
but was determined to quit for the baby.
However, after I began losing weight, and not being able to eat
anything, I quickly decided that my wasting away would do neither the baby
nor myself any good. So I
resumed smoking, and it helped tremendously.
I still got sick about once or twice a day, but that was nothing in
comparison to my condition before I began smoking.
I was concerned as to the effects that it would have on my
baby, but she came out to be an 8lb 7oz baby, and she is smart as a whip.
It made me very happy to read a study just recently about Jamaican
women who had smoked marihuana throughout their pregnancies, and had
healthy, intelligent babies as well. If
it were not for marijuana, I do not know what would have happened.
