  • No. I cut down from a pack a day to about 5 a day. My OB told me the stress from smoking was more harmful than quitting would be. I was left when I was 5 months along, evicted and homeless, no car, no friends, no rides to the doctor. I was under enough stress he said and any more would have been too damaging. This happened with both of my pregnancies (except I wasn't evicted with the second one and the father (same father) left the day I found out I was pregnant.

  • With my son I quit cold turkey because it made me sick as a dog to smell it.. with my daughter i smoked 2 a day maybe if that.. it didnt make me sick like most.. but i will say that she weighted less than my son and she had a lttle trouble with her lungs and acid reflux and it all could have been caused from the smoking...

  • With my first pregnancy I didn't know I was pregnant until I was 20wks and I quit immediatly after that. With this one I found out when I was around 7 weeks and couldn't stop! I actually still sneak 1 or 2 every now and then but I def don't smoke like I used to.
