Did you smoke while pregnant?

I was able to quick smoking with my two other kids very quickly. This time it seems ten times harder. I am down to four a day and am hoping within two weeks to be completely done, but I feel like the worst person ever for it taking so long. (I am 14 weeks) SO..HELP? Did you quit while pregnant and how?

  • Don't feel bad. You are trying, that's what counts. Some people don't even do that. Take to you obgyn and s/he can give you the patch to help you out. Mine also gave me Welbutrin and the hospital offered classes on it. Good Luck!

  • I didn't quit with either of my pregnancies. My kids are fine, but I can't say that I don't feel guilty about it. I'm trying to quit now.

  • I cut way back with my dd, only when I was at work and having the shakes did I go out and smoke one. Now, w/ this one, I don't smoke. But with dd, it was about one a day, two if work made me cry or something....cut back from a pack a day....and then after she was about 2 years, I quit altogether, which is good, cause now she's almost 2 yrs 4 mnths and I'm pregnant again. I'm sort of doing an experiment, since I smoked w/ one and now wont smoke with the other! :) LOL
