A lot - and none of its good. Go to the top of the screen, type "Smoking during pregnancy" and click on the first hit you get. Thats a good place to start.

it effects how much oxygen your baby is getting. the more you smoke the less oxygen there is being sent to the baby. basically, you're suffocating your baby.

Stop smoking or at the very least cut down! You could cause serious health and developmental problems for your baby.

Your baby is going to come out nicotine addicted and crying all the time. Plus it could have heart defects, organ damage or become a hermaphrodite.

my sisters doctor told her that every ciggerate that you smoke brings your babys IQ down by about 2 points.

All of us know that smoking is bad at any time especially when pregnant, but good grief some of these responses! Gilly, if you can quit, quit. In the long run it is much better for you baby. If you have too hard of time (like me) try to cut down to 1 an hour then 1 every two hours, etc. I have smoked throughout both of my previous pregnancies (not recommending, just stating fact) both of children were born healthy, my son was 8 1/2 pounds and my daughter weighed in at 7 lbs. 11 oz. My son is now 14 and is very smart. He is in all advanced cla__ses at school and has NO adverse health problems. My daughter is well on her way to be advanced as well and she has also has NO adverse health problems. I would advise you to make your OB aware that you smoke, and get her/his advice on the best way to quit. Stress is the biggest trigger for me, and lets be real pregnancy in itself is VERY stressful. Try, but don't beat yourself up if you can't and can only cut back.

it also can make your baby premature my cousins smokes like a train but one of her kids came out at 9 pounds and the docs said if she didn't smoke it would've been huge. I'm a smoker to but i'm doing everything i can to make sure my baby is safe and i quit the day i found out i was pregnant.
