    Hey Girls x

    I have been awful with smoking since i was really young like 14 :(

    I have found it really really hard to stop even with all the guilty feelings :(

    Well today ive been to see a stop smoking nurse and been prescribed some Patches and an inhailer type thing so im currently 5 hours without a fag and going mental :(

    Is anyone else currently stopping? xx

    Just think of the positives hun, you will have more money to buy baby things and you won't stink. I can quit on and off my partner hates me because of it. I quit with Leo and then started again about 3/4 weeks after he was born than quit again with this one.

    I do enjoy being smoke free it leaves me feeling better about myself. Also the smell is disgusting that my partner drifts in after he's been outside also he smokes weed so that smells even worse. Makes me feel sick and gives me a tummy ache :(

    You haven't got long til your 12 week scan, then you could buy something small. I started with a little teddy for him once he was born. Like the ones we had as kids with us on our first picture (I still have my bunnie) hehe x

    The positives of quitting far outweigh the negatives, ur baby doesn't deserve to have all those toxic chemicals put into its wee body, that goes for smoking around a baby after its born too.

    It disgusts me when I see pregnant women smoking, I seriously wana slap them!

    Smoking itself disgusts me anyway, but to smoke while pregnant, to me, is just unforgivable. Its so well known how harmful cigarettes are, so why a person would want to subject their baby to that shite is beyond me.

    Yep.. currently 32 hours without a cig! :)

    Feeling ill with it though have a few mouth ulcers and feeling dizzy but on a good note my hunger seems to have increased :)

    Well actually same as my smoking nurse told me more needs to be done to show pregnant women the dangers as im sure everyone knows its bad for you to smoke but i diddnt know half of it untill i read the information she gave me.. i wish i had been gave that at my first midwife appointment x

    It took around 3 weeks from going to my doctors for me to have seen the smoking nurse but during them 3 weeks i cut down my cigarettes by atleast half :) My carbon monoxide reading was only 10.. 0-6 means non smoker 6-10 means very light smoker and 11+ is bad so i have been gave the weak nicotine replacements although it is still very very hard :(

    I guess most ladys dont stop because they cant see the actual harm they are causing more needs to be done to promote how dangerous it is x

    It is such an addiction though if you have never smoked its hard to even explain it but im sure ill keep it up :)

    2 bed times without a cig now and atleast i know my baby is happy about it :) x

    I stopped on new years day, the day after i found out i was pregnant. I have smoked for 21 years nearly so it was a shock to the system but worth it, everytime i get the urge i think of the harm it does to the little one and that soon changes my mind again x

    it is really hard to quit. it is not just in overnight process. but if you are really motivated to quit, you can do it.
    i guess it is all the mind.hehe..
    good luck to you. :)

    Well done for having the will power to quit smoking. Hopefully you won't go back to it once baby is her. I think a lot of people forget that even when they start smoking again after pregnancy baby still inhales fumes through passive smoking whether it be from off your clothes or from a different room. All the best x
