    Keep us updated. You are protected by law against any adverse action from making a complaint so document everything and advise your boss ASAP if you do.

    Of course you won't be advised what action will be taken against the other employee... Often people are disappointed with this but it's a breach of their confidentiality.

    Big hugs. Your employer has a duty to protect you from that sort of harassment from colleagues so if he tries or threatens anything in retaliation make sure they are aware and do something straight away.

    Congratulations on the pregnancy AND on cutting down so much.

    Filing a compliant is the best thing to do.

    I hope work goes smoothly for you.

    Best wishes

    Woah that is so out of line!! Definitely lodge a formal complaint. That is harassment and no one should have to put up with that crap.

    Good luck with everything x

    It really peeves me that as adolescents we are 'encouraged' to smoke by peers and tobacco companies, and as adults, it's pretty much accepted.

    Yet then, as soon as a woman is pregnant, it's like she is public property, never mind that society as a whole contributes to people developing the addiction in the first place, oh no, as soon as you are pregnant, well you are a bad person if you smoke, over night.

    Just a clarification, I've always been a non-smoker, and would love if no-one smoked, as it's not good for anyone, but I have been close up and personal with the subject of addiction in my life, and know it is not always as simple as people think.

    Well done for giving up as much as you have done, and I hope that idiot at your work gets a right bollocking. Tell him if he's so damn concerned, to go down to a local high school, and do some educational talks to teenagers...

    Congrats on the pregnancy - and well done on cutting down that much!!

    It really does sound like he's out of line, you have every right to have complained!

    Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy xxx

    I've never smoked, but I reckon if it was so easy to quit, all pregnant women would do it easily. Going from 30 to 2-3 is massive! I doubt this guy cares as much about your baby as he does about putting you down so you were right to complain, what a douche-bag!

    Wow, he completely stepped over the line. That's pretty heavy harassment. He sounds a bit unstable if you ask me.

    I hope your workplace pulls him into line so he leaves you alone from now on.
