  • Uggh no. There's a woman at work who goes to smoke literally about every 45 minutes. It makes me so sick, especially because no she's showing so much. I feel so bad for the baby and the withdrawals it'll most likely go thru.

  • i quit for the first 3 months, and then i broke up with the father of my child was really really depressed and a friend offered me a ciggerate. i said i would only smoke just one and it all went down hill from their. for the rest of my pregnancy i would smoke for a week, then quit for two, got back together with my SO and he would smoke right in my face and offer them to me and i would try not to, but then i would give in and smoke. by the last two months i was smoking 3 a day. i felt guilty the whole time. so guilty. and i still do. but it was an unplanned pregnancy and i wasnt ready for it, and i guess im not as strong as i thought i was. and a little selfish. but i tried, i really did.

  • Before I was pregnant I smoked one pack a day.
    As soon as I found out I was pregnant I quit smoking from one day to another - just threw the pack I had in the trash. I wasn't smoking the whole pregnancy and for the whole time I was breastfeeding!
    But a few month ago we had a girls night out and my friends are smoking... they offered me one... and oh well I'm smoking again... but just a half pack!

  • I'm not proud about it, but I smoked with my first son, & with the second. They learned all the things they should as they grew.
    Quit smoking for the baby, but more for yourself and spend the $$ on a new post preggers outfit w/shoes.

  • i don't smoke, well to be honest, i smoke about 1 pack a year. just every once in a while i'll have a couple of drinks and a couple of cigarettes. so of course i didn't smoke while pg.

    my stepmom did smoke during all 5 of her pregnancies. and she would always go on about how all of her babies were born small and i'd think "DUH i wonder why".

    everyone else i know who smokes has quit during their pregnancies but then started up again afterwards unfortunately.
