actually ur labour should start 2 wks later but as per ur symptoms i feel ur labour pains have started this is ur third issue , there are chances of ur labour starting better go to ur gynaec doc for check up atleast u didnt get any prenatal care..u should immediately go to doc rather rhan waiting at home..
coming to complications in ur child due to ur smoking.. nicotine in smoke affects the baby s growth lungs brain and heart leading to preterm delivery ,low birth wt ,heart defects ,asthma, or any behavioural problems ..any of these may occur in the baby..
u shoul have quit ur smoking for ur baby but still even nw i advise u to quit for ur baby..
and better go to doc now for a safe delivery and just hope in God for a healthy baby,,
all the best..
