4 months



Yea we made it!!!

Today we (me and my Fiance) will have quit smoking 4 MONTHS!!!

We would have been 11wks pregnant today aswell if we hadnt of lost our little baby!
This means we were off the cigs just 5 weeks before we concieved - for the first ever time in 18 months - This wasnt even a full cycle for me cause Im usually 6wk cycles :-) I think that is a huge sign -> smoking massively decreased our fertility!!!!

I wanted to congradulate you both on quiting I quit when I found out I was preggers with my first in ninty five. My step dad just found out he has major blood clots from smoking he almost died. He was in the hosp for two months he got out and I lost my baby in april it was a very hard month for us . But my mom still smokes ! Im praying for her to quit but I know how hard it is I smoked from age thirteen to twenty. So congrats I know u will be blessed again with another bundle of joy soon :)

aww thank u retta, i dont miss them at all... i would do anything to have a little baby and one thing we needed to do was quit. i would never be a smoking mum and i wouldnt want my fiance or our house to be filled with smoke! thats horrible about your step father... smoking is soo harmful i dont think we realise that when we do it.my mum smokes aswell i would love her to give up. i smoked from i was 13 - 22 wasted years smoking i think. thank u so much you have very kind words for me.. i wish the same for you.. lots of luck TTC your little miracle xx

Smoking DEFINITELY has a very negative affect on conceiving, it restricts blood flow to all our female reproductive organs which is HUGE for fertility....it can and will actually really damage those organs too (not to mention the strain on your wallet, that's almost enough motivation on its own to quit!!). So congratulations to you and your fiance!! : ) I heard there's actually a website quitnow.ca that once you input all your information it tells you how many days, weeks, how many cigarettes you've NOT smoked, how many packs you've avoided buying and exactly how much $ you've saved right to the penny. Sounded really neat : )
