Adult thumb sucker

 I'm 18 years old. Im 12 weeks pregnant. I get really nervous because i still stuck my thumb. Will my child start doing it because they see me do it? I do it at home, out in public, school & even grocery stores. I don't even realize i'm doing it. And i don't want to quit. If i quit sucking my thumb, i'll take up smoking again. Plus, i can't sleep without it.

I use my baby blanket when i suck my thumb at night. My boyfriend doesn't mind.

I do it sometimes too & I'm 34. My son never saw me do it & he still did it. I've never done it in public, though. Do people ever say anything?

 I can honestly say no one has ever confronted me about it, besides close relatives. Growing up, preteen boys made a lot of sexual jokes out of it. It never bothered me.

That's good! People can be mean sometimes. This is going to sound weird, but do you have a blankie or anything? I have a nylon headscarf thing hidden under pillow. Gosh, i sound weird. Lol

I do it in my sleep sometimes, but my son only ever "chewed" his fingers when he teethed, never sucked his thumb, or a passy. 

Mother to Alexander. Edwyn is due in March/April <3
