So I am 6 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I have had my 1st OB appointment and the doctor really didn't seem all that concerned about anything. She asked if I was smoking and I admitted that I was. But I have slowed down a lot. I have gone from 2 1/2 packs a day to 10 cigs a day. I hope that by the end of this week I can get down to no cigs though!
I'm just wondering why wouldn't she be concerned with the fact that I am still smoking? She told me why I should quit and everything but said that if I couldn't that there were specific things I would need to do when the baby got here.
Another question that I have is if you have been a smoker am I on a good track to quit? I can't quit cold turkey because of the stress I go through. I know a while ago I came across an article that said that 3 cigs a day won't really effect the baby is that true?
I'm confused about this whole smoking thing and I will quit I just need some support and advice. Thanks and please don't judge. I have given up a lot of cigs and I am proud of myself for giving up that many. Because that is a little more than 2 packs I have already given up in like 2 weeks or so.

Why is being ignorant something to be proud of these days?
