    hi, i feel really bad...i am going to be a single mam and i was with a drug addict but left him and one of his habits like smoking cigarettes rubbed off on me for a while....i used to be a chain smoker before i found out i was pregnant and right when i found out i quit but then i started withdrawing. i know it sounds so stupid but its true, so i decided to start back but not smoke a lot at all i smoked one cigarette a day then cut down to one cigarette a week well...i finally quit and im offically 29 weeks pregnant as of today..im just worried will my baby be fine?? i have had ultra sounds and his heart sounds fine and he looks like hes developing very well....it wasn't intentional to hurt him... i was just having problems quitting. now i'm doing everything right..i'm taking vitamins...drinking plenty of water..eating healthy.. i have been taking my vitamins ever since the third month of my pregnancy. i love my baby i just wanna make sure he's going to be okay. please help?

    If the doctor isn't worried, you shouldn't be either. The danger of smoking is usually if you smoke the entire pregnancy. Since you were early in the pregnancy when you quit, you should be fine.

    Although I'm not a smoker and can't stand the habit, I will tell you that my Mom smoked with all three of us and we're all healthy. I'm VERY glad to hear you've quit, that's quite an accomplishment! Hope you can stay cigarette free when your LO arrives. Second hand smoke is so bad and dangerous to you LO.

    Stay positive, you've made a step in the right direction, he'll be fine

    thanks you and yes i know it took me until like my fifth month to like officially quit because i was around it with my friends and well its highly addicting...im proud to say tho i have stopped full flesh which makes me positive about things but it just worries me cuz things go wrong with just regular pregnancies..when women actually never picked up a cigerette or anything why they were pregnant.
