Hi ladies....my cousin is about 6 1/2 months pregnant....she has smoked with her other 2 pregnancies and her children turned out fine....she continues to smoke with her third....should i say something to her.....like to quit while theres still time? Anyone else smoke through thier pregnancies?

No, I quit when I found out with my first, haven't smoked since. But, I have a friend that is 20 weeks and she smokes also. She has definately cut down but I still can't stand it. I think it is a hard subject to approach. She probably already knows how bad it is and pregnant women can be sensitive. I just kind of let her know that I would really love it if she would quit and when I notice she is not smoking much I compliment it. Not much else you can do, it is her choice.

This can be a very touchy subject as I have noticed posts on smoking here before. I am not a smoker and I don't bash people who do. The statistics are there. Everyone knows it is extremely harmful to unborn babies and children alike but some can't seem to stop.

hiya im 33 weeks and i smoke im not proud of it and if i had the willpower to stop i would i tried hard to but i cant use anything to help[ me quit so iv just cut down as much as i can. i was concerned that it would affect babys weight etc but i went for a scan the other day and she weighs 4lb5oz which gave me an est weight of 7lb8oz at birth. i still try to quit but it is really hard.

if this is her 3rd child and she is still smoking than there's no point in saying anything to her. Any " bad habit " you continue during pregnancy is a gamble. Even though a lot of babies turn out " healthy " , there are always the few that aren't so lucky. I personally quit 3 weeks after I found out I was pregnant and haven't cheated or craved any since.
