Is it normal to crave cigarettes when pregnant?

I quit smoking over a year ago but ever since I got pregnant I have been craving a smoke!

It's so bad I dream about it and it's so real I feel like I have actually had a cigarette.

I haven't had one and I don't intend to but is this normal? To crave a cigarette I mean.

  • When I was preggo I dreamt that I was smoking too! It's funny I would smoke in my dream and then I would feel guilty in my dream too! Then I'd wake up and I would be sooo relieved that I didn't really smoke.

  • Yes, I've been having those cravings too! I think for me its all the crazy hormones and stress they cause that make me want a smoke! I liked smoking when I used to...glad my husband made me quit though.

  • DH and I quit when we came home from our honeymoon cold turkey. We had our first wedding anniversary on August 11th and still not smoking!! The best part is that my parents both quit too and now none of us smoke! I'm so proud of us and proud of you girls to it's really hard to do.
