One of the many things that I am not a big fan of is hurting someone whether intentional or unintentional. Somehow, on this blog, I managed to do that. In an earlier post I spoke quite vividly of a friend of mine who gets high while she is pregnant. I never once brought up my opinion to her, I'm not sure why, I guess I just felt it was none of my business. I write on this blog for me, if something is bothering me I let it out here. In retrospect I should not have called her an asshole. I should have stated my opinion and left it at that. I guess the reason I am upset is because here she is doing something that is so obviously bad for the development of the unborn child and she doesn't think twice about it. During my pregnancy I did everything by the book and my boy was born with this. I guess I just think that you shouldn't take a baby's health for granted, you should feel lucky and blessed that you don't have to have bi-weekly ultrasounds and non-stress tests. You should be thankful that you will never feel the dread of knowing that if your baby were to play any physical sports and had somehow gotten hurt, he would have to do dialysis for the rest of his life. By the way, for anyone who needs proof that smoking pot is detrimental while pregnant or breastfeeding click here or here. The point of this post is basically to back my opinion up and to apologize for any hurt I caused you. We have different opinions, that's all.
