you say you are smoker and now you are pregnant also, first you check that the present baby is not affected by your smoking, it defenitely have effect in many ways. after stoping smoking for minimum of two months you plan for pregnancy. Join the quit smoking groups. there are nicotine replacement and non nicotine replacement medicines now a days. you can see a de addiction medicine specialist and ask them for these. They counsel you how to cope with post smoking days

You ned to stop smoking immediately since it is very injurious to health. Ans laso smoking has lot of affects on teh baby as well. Stop smoking immediately. You may also abort the child if you donot stop smoking. Consult your doctor for help.

This is quite painful that you are smoking inspite of the fact that you are Pregnant. Smoking is dangerous to your baby more than it is to you. Intra Uterine growth retardation of foetus is common problem. Better to leave aside smoking.
