  • I did! Smoking is actually the reason I found out. My lungs would not let me inhale it all the way. Kept choking and feeling sick. I found out at 2 weeks preggo! I freaked out for weeks and found out brain development was week 6-8 so I quit early enough :)

  • I stopped when I found out I was pregnant 2 years ago. I still crave a cigarette sometimes, but I won't go back to smoking.

  • Yes I quit, after 10 years of smoking, when I found out I was pregnant. Since having my daughter 11 months ago I've had about 5 cigs, but they are gross to me now, I can hardly finish one, so I'm just done, and I love being a non-smoker! Congratulations to you, keep it up, your baby deserves all the best!!

  • I quit when I found out I was pregnant, but it was easier to quit because it triggered my nauseousness with my morning sickness. Ever since my morning sickness subsided after 4 months I crave one so bad, especially since I have anxiety, they usually helped me to calm down. But I am now 40 weeks pregnant and dont want to go back to smoking once I have my son, but I am worried that I will because I still have severe cravings :[
