When I found out I was pregnant I quite cold turkey here and there I would have a drag or so but latley I have had so much stress I smoke 2-4 a day sometimes I know it's no excuse. I just had a recent appt. nothing wrong with my baby she is healthy finding out the sex really made it real and such a wake up call. I'm scared that I waited to long to put my foot down. Bug it's so hard to break the habit of smoking ciggs. I don't want anything happening to my baby. I need some advice or anything really thank yoj

It's never too late to quit. I know it's hard. While it is not ideal, just do the best you can not to smoke. Find other things to do when you feel the need for a cigarette. When I gave up, I became obsessed with cleaning the house and cooking/baking. It helped me give up!!!

At this stage, given you are only having a small amount, your baby will most likely be fine, BUT it is in your baby's best interests not to smoke at all.
