I can see this is a touchy subject ....I'm new on here....one thing i noticed is how critical people are about people who smoke. I am a smoking pregnant woman...I am 19 yrs. old ...I lost my mom a couple of months ago to cancer...so reason enough for me to quit right? I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, still thing's are hard...my babys already been through enough stress and I've cut down to like 5 smokes a day but does this really make me a bad mom because I'm trying all I can to keep myself and my son healthy! I really want honest answers cause you know caffeine is bad but I bet alot of moms didn't interfere their habits of coffee drinking and mt.dew spews while they were pregnant but they are WONDERFUL moms cause they didn't smoke? Well I should be a wonderful Mom cause I don't do hardcore drugs to help me deal with the loss of my mom ...right? Just trying to make a point.Answer Question

You are not a bad Mom. Should you smoke, no, but as you pointed out, these habits, etc. are hard to give up-- esp. in stressful times. It is good that you have cut way back. Keep it as low as you can. Don't let anyone beat you up, you are trying your best and noone has the right to be your judge. You only answer to God! Just, please, after the baby is born, be diligent about not smoking around him/her. That is actually worse than smoking while pregnant. I'm so sorry for your loss! I can't imagine how difficult that must be to be so young, pregnant, and not to have your mom! I'll say a prayer for you!

Pink, that is heartbreaking, and I definitely will! I'm sure you will do a good job of keeping their grandma alive in their hearts through your love and memories of her!
