I'm 28 weeks and I have smoked cigarettes on and off throughout this entire pregnancy. I know I'm a horrible person for it and I don't need to explain how shitty my life is right now because there's no excuse for what I'm doing to my baby. When I found out I was pregnant I cut back a lot, and then for about 3 weeks straight I quit completely. Then, I went back to 1 a day, which turned into 2 day, which led to where I'm at now (about 6-8 a day). Some days less than others. So far, the baby and I are really healthy, I have no blood pressure issues, her heartrate and growth are right on track, but I fear she may be born with problems and I'll have noone to blame but me. How can I quit for good before it's too late, if not already??

I used to smoke but I miscarried my first baby so I quit. I miscarried the 2nd, 3rd and 4th baby too. So when you have a really hard time having a baby you don't take it for granted. Just think about that every time you go to light up. Now it really bugs me when I see a prego woman smoking. I would just think about the fact that some women have to go through soooo much for a healthy baby....the least you could do it stop smoking for another few months at least.
