My little decided to make an early appearance on Tuesday at 35+3 weeks. Due to pre eclampsia I was induced early. She is perfect and healthy but we where due to move this Saturday as our flat suffers from horrendous damp and mould which would not of been good for baby but baby and me are ready to go home today.
The plan is for me and baby to stay at my partners mums house until we have moved into the new flat at the weekend as i don't want her breathing in the mould. However his mum and sister smoke in their bedrooms, they have the doors closed and have said they will stop when we are their and we will be staying in a room that is never smoked in and has been well aired out. But im paranoid she won't be ok but surely it's better than all the damp?

Congratulations! I had a couple of early babies, bit of a shock isn't it but glad she is doing so well. The smoking isn't ideal but I don't think a couple of days will be too much of a problem. Do make sure they wash hands and change their top after smoking though if they are going to hold the baby.

You could ask the hospital what they think about smoke (in another room) vs mould?

Congratulations! They should also wait at least half hour after smoking to be close to baby from what I've herd
