If this offends anyone I guess you can unfriend me or block me, whatever. But, it really makes me angry when women who smoke cigarettes go around saying "I smoked cigarettes during my pregnancy and my baby came out just fine." Good for you, you're lucky. Wait a few years and see if you're still lucky...you never know what problems may arise with your child that go back to you smoking while pregnant. I guess my point is if you know the risks and you're going to smoke anyway, please don't go around talking about it like it's okay...it really just isn't. Ugh.

@babybue16, I understand exactly and I appreciate you saying that. I'm so tired of reading things pregnant moms post that try to justify smoking while pregnant. In my opinion there is no justification and like I said if you know the risks and are going to anyways you probably shouldn't talk about it...works me up too.

I get worked up every time I read a post about people smoking while pregnant. It's not ok. It's not even good for adults who aren't pregnant so why expose a baby to that. There's no excuse. Even if there is trouble quitting cold turkey, there is no reason why someone should still be smoking at 28 weeks. Im pretty sure it's possible to reduce to zero a lot faster than that. I appreciate that you posted this especially since you are a smoker and have anxiety issues.

@nicemmcha2015, exactly...Like I said above I have severe Anxiety and PTSD and I smoked a lot before and I quit taking all meds/smoking and dealt with my problems through therapy. I was not risking it when it comes to my daughter.

@gracelynnfaith0728, yeah there's always some sort of special circumstance. I have PTSD and severe Anxiety and I quit taking my medicine cold turkey and I also quit smoking a pack a day. If your doctor tells you something you shouldn't ever disregard it but js.

People are selfish beings. that's all it comes down to. they do what they want and then will make up excuses till they are blue in the face as to why they do it. there is no excuse for that. anxiety my butt. they make meds specifically for that that are pregnancey safe. I smoked for 6 years and once we decided we wanted a baby I stopped completely 4 months before. to me.. My kids mean that much. it makes me angry because that kid is the one that's going to pay for it in the long run health wise when they didn't ask for it.

A woman at work told me that "others smoke. I'll be fine." and then her baby was born at 32 weeks. coincidence? maybe. but soooo not worth risking it.

I'm 28 weeks measuring 3 weeks ahead. I smoke. I have issues with stress and anxiety, and ciggs calm me down. My OBGYN even said for me to not quit cold turkey because of my issues. I reduced. Everyone has a different opinion. There's a lot of things that can harm pregnancy. My daughter is perfectly healthy, but if i just up and quit it can harm her more than it can help. Eating too much salt can cause problems, eating too much sugar can cause problems. A lot of things cause issue, not just ciggs.
