I don't think it's very smart, but nothing compared to doing pills while pregnant.

While I knew the possible problems smoking could cause while I was pregnant, I did continue to do so. I did get to the point where I only needed 3 cigarettes a day. I know women who have done way worse than smoke, while I do think 2 packs a day is a bit much, at least its not crack, pills, methadone, or anything else that could be worse.

dam, that's a lotta smoke, nut innate never met anyone who has smoke while prego and had any problems with the kids. I actualy know two who had high risk pregnancies that the doctor told them to cut down, but to not quit because the stress from quitting was too hard on the baby.

Its just pure stupidy or just not caring that changes everything while pregnant.the risks are sometimes bad.my girlfriend had our son and hes got a learning disability brought on from constant smoking .its sad to think women cant give up smoking while caring there child its sad and pathectic of them to be so selfish.

Then the mothers that smoke while they are pregnant, and continue to do so around the baby after its born cant figure out why in the world the baby keeps constant ear infections, colds, respitory issues, asthma etc. I think it should be considered child abuse.

what about the parents that take their kids to mcdonalds? that's doing more damage to people than tobacco ever thought of doing, yet it's advertised as a family place! how horrible is that? 4 or 5 people die or weight related illness every day to each tobacco related illness! people really need to get their priorities in order.

Don't tell that to the anti smoking crowd! Bottom line is we're each responsible for our actions. Be it smoking, drinking, what you eat, whatever. What we don't need is a nanny state protecting us from ourselves.

Im not saying these women that smoke heavily are bad people.but it seems like such a petty thing to give up for you unborn child to give up.They need every advantage possible to be born healthy.It wouldnt even be an issue with me.i would guit as soon as i knew i was pregnant no questions asked.

Exactly, it's a common sense thing, and you can't legislate against ignorance.

I am a 2 to 2 1/2 pack a day smoker, have been for many years, and during my second pregnancy I was depressed and alone, so I smoked more. My second daughter turned out just fine. Straight A student, no behavior problems etc...
I smoke in my house, and car, and have friend who don't smoke and their kids are always sick, have problems, and are down right nasty. My youngest has been around smoking all her life and is never sick, never misses school, and does not have to see a doctor all the time.

People who smoke stink. They can't tell becuz they are bathed in the nasty stuff 24/7. But us fine folks who don't, can tell instantly when someone does. Aint nothing like goin to a restaurant and your server smelling like an ashtray
