    Yep. I wouldn't say anything either but, damn..... I'd be fuming. I'm also a former smoker...

    I would like to say I wouldn't but yeah I think I do.

    But it's their life and their choice what they do with it. Not my place, and I wouldn't say anything.

    I had a lady walk past me when u was pregnant with ds who shouted and I mean shouted "good on you for killing your baby"

    In in no mean proud or happy f the fact that I smoked while pregnant I am not hell I'm 3 weeks into quitting but people need to tread very carefully I was angry and upset at myself as it was and that didn't help at all

    Smoking in general grosses me out now the smell is jut ick.

    If I was to walk past a pregnant lady smoking tomorrow being that i have been there, I have coped the public backlash, I have experienced the personal beat up within myself over it no I would not say anything.

    I smoked through all 3 of my pregnancies although I made a point of not smoking in public most of the time. The few times I did smoke I was never approached or told off by anyone. IMO it's not anybody else's business, if I am smoking in a designated smoking area then what can they say?

    BTW I quit smoking in March 2010 and haven't gone back

    Yep! I wouldn't say anything as really it's their body and their baby so none of my business. But I smoked once upon a time stupidly, I quit cold turkey. It can be done and I think there is no excuse.I think if you are silly enough to do it in public you can't really blame people for getting upset. I think public smoking should be banned.

    I do judge but I would never say anything - it's not my place and the woman probably already knows it isn't great so me sticking my nose in wouldn't really help anyone or accomplish anything

    Totally judge and don't feel bad about it.

    That said I wouldn't say anything. But I'd be fuming inside.

    Yep I definitely judge! I don't see how a mother can do that to her unborn child. I was a smoker and the minute I found out I was pregnant I stopped, I don't want to do anything to harm a defenseless bub. I would never say anything to them though.

    I judge a pregnant woman who smokes 10 ways from Sunday. There are studies that prove they are bad for their child, and the mother would be the first to complain when their child is extremely hard to settle after being born with an addiction to nicotine. If you smoke and are happy to do so without effecting other people that is fine by me, but when you smoke and are harming someone else that is wrong.

    BUT, I would not say anything. If someone is already doing it knowing how its effecting their child then they obviously aren't going to stop anytime soon if a baby can't stop them.
