    Tough one, I suppose it is really up to her what she does during her pregnancy, as long as she knows the risks of it all, Its her choice to make I guess! Just keep your fingers crossed it doesn't hrm her baby if she won't listen to you :(

    This is a tough one as I for one would be similar to you and want her to stop doing those things, but it is up to the individual at the end of the day. Maybe tell her you saw a programme on the damage it can do to the baby in the hope it will put her off? I don't know what to advise to be honest, just wanted to sympathise as I would struggle to know what to do in this situation. Good luck x.

    Well it seems like you've provided her with the education and it is down to her now. You've done as much as you can, hope she realises soon. All the best with your course and hope your sis has a healthy pg and happy little baby x.

    I'd leave her to get on with it for now. You can lead a horse to water an' all that...

    Maybe once she's seen her baby on a scan it will hit home and she'll start taking better care of herself.

    I'd leave her too it aswell.

    If I had a big sister & she tried talk to me about my pregnancy, I wouldn't want to know. Because it's my baby, I'll decide what I do. So she probably feels the same. :)

    It'll hit her properly soon, and I'm sure she'll realise it's not good for the baby.

    i would personally leave her to it

    My sisters mate did all those things and carried on like normal, but lost her baby at 10 weeks. That was before I got pregnant so Im making sure not to be so stupid, Not that I would have done any of those things anyway but now Im doubley careful, no caffine, no booze, no cheese, nothing that can be harmful (have slipped up once because I ate some parma ham) but nothing huge. There is nothing really you can do to stop her, but I found horror stories work best as deterants.
    Good luck and I hope she wises up soon

    You may as well](*,)by the sound of it babe.

    People like that usually come out with things like

    "well people I know have been doing it through their pregnancy and they're kids are fine"

    :dohh::dohh::dohh::dohh:
    Hopefully baby will be fine sweetie and lets face it....there's nothing you can do:hugs:

    It's frustrating though isn't it?
