  • Talk to your dr about all this. More than likely your baby is perfectly fine.

  • Many women smoke thru the pregnancy but you cannot 'slip' and accidentally have one.

    If you really need one, look into the e-cigarette. It doesn't have all the carcenogens in them and you will still get your nicotine. However, just like caffiene, you should realy watch how much you use.

  • You really shouldn't slip if you consider the health of your unborn baby. I will tell you that both my mom and sister smoked while pregnant and my sister and I both have asthma and my sister smoked while pregnant and my niece as asthma as well. I have asthma and so does my SO and I didn't smoke while pregnant and my child is the only child in our family without lung problems.

  • Have you tried those e-cigs?? My auntie who has smoked for years says they really help with the cravings. It's better to not slip at all. Is it the end of the world if you do?? No. If you do slip don't beat yourself up over it. It's an addiction and it's not the easiest to break.
