My best mate smoked throughout her 2 pregnancies. With her first pregnancy I was a smoker too and felt so embarrassed when we would have a smoke together in public while she was obviously pregnant. With the second pregnancy she had the attitude of 'well I smoked the first pregnancy and she turned out fine'. Yeah she did, but why would you risk it again? Obviously not every baby that had a smoker for a mother is going to end up with health issues, but why would you even risk that for your baby?
