i've answered a similar question before, and everyone ganged up on me, so i'll say that you should quit completely.. i've smoked about 1 to 10 ciggarettes a day with my baby, and he turned out perfectly healthy and normal weight... i read from a book that there's only 40% chance of something being wrong with a baby if the mother smokes like 2 packs a day..so in my opinion, smoking half a pack has a little % of something being wrong... as i say - you don't need to be a smoker to get cancer...so even those mommys who are non smokers, can still have a low-birth weight baby, or allergies, or asthma, or something else... but it can also depend on you health history, your family history, and smoking or not should be up to you, unless the doctor says you HAVE to quit cause he seen something bad on the scan..
