    Smoking cigarettes on and off

    So this is my first pregnancy. I am 25 weeks . I've been a smoker for 8years. I quit smoking when I found out I was pregnant at 9 weeks. That only lasted for about a month then my cravings just tool over and limited myself between 1-3 every few days. Some days I wouldn't even smoke and would use my e-cig. But i haven't completely stopped. There have been days where my partner and I would have stressful days and i would chain smoke about 8. My smoking is on and off and even though I know I'm risking it everytime my paranoia has been building thought out my pregnancy . Its relieving to see how more than less women have healthy babies after smoking during pregnancy. What are the major or most common effects on the baby when it comes to smoking cigarettes?
