  • Smoking deprives your body as well as your baby of oxygen. This can lead to low birth weight, undeveloped lungs, breathing problems in the baby after birth, premature birth and in some severe cases..brain damage.

  • STOP, STOP, STOP. If you don't love your own body enough to stop smoking, do it for your baby's body. Your body is being poisoned by that awful smoking. And now a baby is in jeopardy, too. STOP, STOP, STOP!!!

  • Chosing to smoke may well be a "personal choice" but ask yourself if you would mind if Your Mother smoked while you were in utero? You're bringing a new life into the world who is entirely dependant on you to make healthy choices, please do it for your baby. It's not too much to ask. :)

  • ok heres the deal, i never asked this question before because i didnt want to get ridiculed. im glad someone else asked it. i am pregnant and smoking. i have cut back a lot. There are reasons i smoke. 1. if i dont im a basket case. 2. i ahve panic attacks and anxiety disorder. so smoking helps ease that a little. i had my ultrasound today any my baby is very strong and healthy. I feel bad when i smoke but im sure the stress when you dont smoke is jsut as bad for the baby
