Taking some drugs or medications during pregnancy can cause problems, including developmental delay, birth defects, intellectual disability, miscarriage and stillbirth. Some medications may be necessary, but only under medical supervision. Alcohol, tobacco, caffeine and illicit drugs, including cannabis and cocaine, are all classified as drugs. Limit caffeine drinks and don't smoke or drink alcohol during pregnancy. Talk about medications with your doctor, midwife or pharmacist.

FRIDAY, Aug. 17 (HealthDay News) -- New research from Sweden suggests that smoking during early pregnancy may boost the risk that preschool children will develop asthma and wheezing problems, even if the kids aren't exposed to smoke after birth.
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Children of women who smoked cigarettes during pregnancy are more likely to have behavioral problems than those whose mothers didn't light up, says a new analysis.
"The evidence is emerging that smoking in pregnancy and the frequency of smoking in pregnancy is correlated with developmental outcomes after (children) are born," said Gordon Harold, the study's senior author from the University of Leicester in the UK.
Previous research has tied smoking cigarettes during pregnancy to behavior problems among children later on, but those studies couldn't rule out the influence of other factors, such as genetics or parenting techniques, researchers said
TUESDAY, Jan. 14, 2013 (HealthDay News) -- Daughters exposed to their mother's stress hormones in the womb may be more likely to become nicotine-dependent later in life, a new long-term study suggests.

(Reuters Health) - Women who quit smoking immediately before or after becoming pregnant gain more weight during and after pregnancy - but their babies are less likely to be born small than those born to smokers, a new study suggests.
Researchers in Denmark found that women who quit smoking gained about six more pounds during their pregnancies than those who continued to smoke, and a similar amount in the year after giving birth.
On the other hand, women who quit smoking early in pregnancy and nonsmokers gave birth to babies of similar birth weights, on average. Babies of women who kept smoking were more likely to be born at a low weight
Finding may gain significance as legalization spreads across U.S., study author says
MONDAY, Dec. 9, 2013 (HealthDay News) -- Expectant mothers who smoke marijuana may triple their risk for a stillbirth, a new study suggests.
The risk is also increased by smoking cigarettes, using other legal and illegal drugs and being exposed to secondhand smoke. Stillbirth risk is heightened whether moms are exposed to pot alone or in combination with other substances, the study authors added.
"Even when [findings are] controlled for cigarette smoking, marijuana use is associated with an increased risk of stillbirth," said lead researcher Dr. Michael Varner, associate director of women's health, obstetrics and gynecology at University of Utah School of Medicine.
Stillbirth refers to fetal death after 20 weeks of pregnancy
