    @hala obviously you should quit smoking, for many many reasons, but the main impacts of smoking on pregnancy is a predisposition to blood clots (so first/second trimester miscarriage) and underweight babies, due to diminished blood supply [nicotine constricts blood vessels]. Cigarette smoke carries numerous carcinogens which can also cause birth defects. But cigarette smoking per se does not impact your ability to conceive.

    Really? In everything I've ever read on ttc they always say smoking reduces fertility so you should quit if you are ttc.
    Obviously once you are pregnant, you should quit smoking asap. I totally agree. I do not expect to carry on smoking during this pregnancy, and I think every woman should at least try to quit smoking or cut right down during pregnancy. I don't like people who just carry on smoking 20 a day regardless. I'm hoping to go all day tmo with no cigarettes so wish me luck as soon as I go one day without, I will get through.

    Also nicotine takes about 3-4 weeks to wash out of your system (we can detect it via blood test if you've smoked any time in the last month), so your month on/month off system is very unlikely to have made a difference.
