Honey im 34 weeks. And evem tho i hate to admit it. Im a smoker. And have been for abt 6 yrs. I always said that if i got pregnant i wohld quit right away... but it didnt happen. Its very hard getting stares from peoe and peopple tellin me im horrible. But my doctor has never said anything. Butbif u do want to quit go ahead and do it now. To where baby wont get addicted. Im so far now that if i did quit it would actually harm my baby. Its really up to u. And btw. I have a very healthy baby boy! So its just your choice. If u ever need someone that wont put u down for that im here. Look me up

I smoked with my son the entire time I felt guilty though but I guess I don't have very good willpower.

I smoked throughout my pregnancy. I tried to quit but found myself feeling really low and unhappy. I cut down from 30 roughly a day to 10. I hated the stares I got from people but only you know what you and your body is capable of. My little boy is healthy and happy. He weighed 6lb13 3/4oz when he was born and in the first 5 days put on 100g. He was also 4days early. So not bad going for a smoker. I can see where people are coming from about smoking and pregnancy. But it is entirely your choice. Good luck! X

I smoked threw out my whole pregnancy, wish I hadn't but I did. My daughter super healthy weighed 6 pounds 7ounces and was a week late. Just remember no matter how late you are in pregnancy you can stop. People say its harm your baby but I'm not sure I've had tons if friends who quick at 30 weeks 38 weeks ect.. It's a hard thing to quit I wish I would have. Do what you can but if its to hard be sure to take care of your body and baby in other ways.

I stopped when I found out I was pregnant (5ish weeks). I had been a smoker for 9 years! So no matter how long you've smoked you can always stop. It's all by will power. I do not judge any of you who are pregnant and still smoke. I know it is tough. I still have dreams that I smoke. Then I wake up so mad at myself! It seems so real but then I realize it's just a dream. My sister smoked till her 3rd trimester. So I wish all you ladies the best of luck!

I smoked with my previous pregnancies because my stress was so high that when I tried to quit I literally was overwhelmed and depressed to the point of contemplating hurting myself. I have been a smoker for 12 years and proud to say I am 4.5 months smoke free and 17 weeks pregnant with my third baby! There is light at the end of the tunnel!!!
