I just found out that my boyfriend (the baby's father) takes drugs in his system. He takes cocaine.
I want to know if that will affect my baby by my pregnancy, and how?

Well here I am, 37, mum to a dear daughter who has just turned 10 - literally a few days after we conceived. We are foster carers and have been for 5 years now, and adopted a lovely little girl who is now 4 and a half. We are fortunate to have such wonderful daughters and have a wonderful relationship with them both.
Ah, how I missed the roller coaster ride of hormones that comes with pregnancy. Yesterday I couldn't have been more excited, yet today I'm a ball of stress on the verge of tears. Where are we going to get the extra money for another mouth to feed? How am I going to keep working at the veterinary hospital where chemo and x-rays are a part of my daily routine? How will I deal with a 15 month old and a newborn at the same time?
It's very rare to hear a man talk about how he bonded with his baby whilst it was still in the womb. For that matter I think the majority of men don't feel a strong bond with their baby for several weeks or even months. Why is this the case? What can we do about it?
We've interviewed hundreds of men around the world for our Being Dad films and color, religion or nationality doesn't matter; some men can have sex during pregnancy and some can't. Many women have told us that when their man tells them they aren't interested or can't do it that they perceived it was because he didn't find them attractive in their later stages of pregnancy.
Loss of an unborn baby often affects men and women in a very different way especially if the loss is in the early staa woman knows she is pregnant she will start thinking about the embryo as a real person -- one with a face, fingers, toes and a name. Guys on the other hand...
She's thinking of the baby, wondering how breastfeeding will go, how much time she'll take off from work and what color to paint the nursery. You're thinking about the money, the future, your buddies, perhaps a bigger house and wondering whether you really have to buy a mini-van.
