    Default Smoking while pregnant?

    Just curious to know how many women out there smoked while pregnant.
    If you did, did you hide it?
    Did you cut down?
    If you managed to quit, did you start again once bubz was born?

    No fighting or judgement !! Just a curious question!

    I did with ds I'm really ashamed to say. He was born at 38 weeks due to a planned c/s and was a healthy 3.6 kg. he does however suffer from allergies and had eczema when he was little. I gave up after he was born and havent touched one since. I really regret smoking with him

    With DS I had a couple. Yes I hid it from everyone. I just craved them and all the ones I started I didn't finish because my body just rejected it. I went back to smoking socially very occasionally when he was around 12 months, then with the stress of ttc I was smoking again around 2-3 a day(yeah I know counter productive!), then quit when I fell pregnant, miscarried and started up again 2-3 a day. Am now UTD again and haven't had one. I will probably go back to smoking socially when this bub stops BFing.

    Yes I did with my first. I cut down to about 5 per day and only did it where nobody would see and judge me. I had my last one in labour.

    I dont smoke at all, so obviously not while pregnant.

    My sister did tho. She made no effort to hide it, and copped a lottttt of negativity and judgement from everyone including strangers, it was difficult she was often in tears over it.

    Not a smoker so no but I also know of quite a few people who have smoked through all their pregnancies quite openly as well

    I quit the day I found out with DS1. Took it up again socially when he was 1, quit when I found out I was pregnant again, lost the baby.
    Socially smoked till I was ttc/pregnant again! And haven't smoked since 2008.
