  • Yes it could. It harms you and your lungs are fully developed. Can you imagine the poor underdeveloped lungs of a baby being forced to smoke?

  • well it could, but the likeliness of it is slim. everyone makes mistakes, when it comes to parenting, don't beat yourself up over it. those who aren't smokers and never have been don't realize how hard it is to actually quit the habit and how much you can still crave one months later.

  • i know if i have a cigarette it won't be my last one, so i'm just not going to have that first one while i'm pregnant. i think about how much it costs (outrageous over 6 dollars a pack) and how bad it smells and blah blah blah but i really can't wait to smoke again. but i will.
