So, I didn't find anywhere in the guidelines that this could not be discussed and I also didn't find any other thread that discusses it. I am a smoker.. very sad to say so. And when I found out I was pregnant a few days ago, my worst fear was quitting because I was afraid of the stress it .at have on my body and my new beautiful zygote. I am 4 weeks and 4 days today, I have severely cut down on my smoking, as in one a day maybe two. I read that as long as you quit within the first 3 months, your chances of birth defects dramatically decline. Any other mommies out there having the same issue? I know women. That smoke the entire pregnancy but I don't plan on doing so, and trying to find helpful tips and tricks on how to deal with the cravings, cut down even more or even not feel so bad about it. Anyone else in the same boat?
