    How many cfs sufferers had mothers who smoked while pregnant with them. My mom smoked, had german measles, and the doctor even put her on diet pills. I guess I am lucky I have all of my fingers and toes!

    Both my parents smoked. My dad has passed on, but my mom is still with us. She will be 70 in June and quit smoking 16 years ago. I smoked for 13 years, while I was pregnant with both my kids. I quit a year after Mom did. My son passed on 2 1/2 years ago of epilipsy, but my daughter is 27 and healthy. She doesn't smoke and never has. She also doesn't have CFS/FM...or at least not yet. I hope she never does.

    God Bless.

    my mother never smoked while she was pregnant with me. but i always tease her that it's her fault that i have all these health problems because she went on a roller coaster when she was pregnant with me and didn't know it yet. it makes for an amusing way to blame the ever growing list of health problems on something.
