Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Yes its bit late but better late than never. It would be ideal if you stop smoking now. It affects your fetus adversely. May lead to to prematurity, low birth weight, pre term labor, still birth ,birth defects, antepartum hemorrhage etc. Take care.

As Dr. Abhishek said "better late than never". Even you know the ill effects of smoking. You can surely do this if you really want to. Try "NICORETTE GUM". Its a stop smoking gum, which really helps.
Take care.
