I try not to judge but in my mind I picture baby floating in smoke lol. Yes, I know that's not how it is but that is how I picture it.

i would assume the majority of moms would agree this is just a reallyhorrible thing to do to your unborn child

everyone knows its horrible to do that to a fetus/baby

nicotine addiction is hard but get over it and get help for the sake of your child

I strongly dislike it, but wouldn't be harsh to anyone about it.

It disgusts me. The smell of cigarette smoke has always made me feel ill, but I am currently pregnant and the smell can induce nausea in an instant. Seeing a pregnant woman smoking makes me sad for the fetus.

It disgusts me that a mother would be that selfish.

Eta: i wouldn't say anything to them though because its their choice, but i secretly judge.

Ok, so do you not believe just about every doctor in the U.S. that will tell you its not a "good" thing for the baby? Are they lying?  There are over 4000 chemicals in a cigarette like cynanide and other carenogens. I know I spelled that last word wrong.

I know moms smoke and have healthy baby. Thank God for that. But some moms smoke and have jacked up babies too. Thats not a good risk. 

Look Im a lush. I LOVE WINE. I just went to the winery last week for dinner. I drank wine maybe 5 nights a week sometimes less. Im sayin everyone has a vice but the day I found I out I was pregnant I havent had a sip. Jan 5th!  Now I do not believe that if I have one glass my child will die but my baby is the most important human on the planet aside from my other kids so....why take the risk.
TO me my child is more than worth abstaining and if I couldnt abstain from wine, or cig, or weed, or even soda for less than 9 months.

Then I may have an addiction problem. Just sayin
