Avatar f tn I have a friend who recently found out she is pregnant. She is a heavy smoker. And is finding it impossible to quit. I was a smoker before i got pregnant, but didn't have a hard time quitting so i really don't know how to help her. Can anyone share some tips on how you quit smoking? And maybe some stories of babies who had a smoking mother, she seems to think it won't hurt the baby because so many people claim to have smoked the entire time and had healthy babies.

1003993 tn?1250729379 Quitting smoking is obviously very hard to do for many people, and if you focus on your weight too much at the same time, you could be disappointed. I think that quitting smoking is probably the healthiest thing you can do right now. It's a big start on the rest of your goals.

Also sometimes I feel so anxious. I need to improve my health. Have a grandbaby coming :) going to make a Dr apt tomorrow for a complete physical and lab work. Also want to quit smoking any advice?

Avatar f tn I am six weeks and I am having the hardest time trying to quit smoking. Any tips?
Avatar m tn i'm in my early 30s. in college i smoked quite a bit, but once i was in my mid 20s i cut down to a couple of packs per week. for the past few years i've only been smoking a couple of cigarettes a day. i know that i can quit. when i'm visiting family i can go days without smoking and it's no big deal. but, once i get back to my place i fire one up. when i throw my pack away i'll succumb within 24 hours an get a new pack. ugh. anyone with any tips and/or techniques.
Avatar f tn Congratulations on quitting smoking! One of the biggest issues with smoking during pregnancy is low birth weight babies. You've stopped at a time when babies really start picking up their weight. That occurs over the last several weeks, so you are giving your baby a good chance of picking up weight and being born at a more healthy weight.
Avatar f tn I am not a smoker so I don't have any tips on quitting, but smoking does harm the baby. It can cause low birth weight, premature birth and affect baby's development. Stop as soon as you can. Plus, secondhand smoke hurts your other kid too!!!
Avatar m tn I am just taking toothpaste, ash, omeprazole and other antacids such as Allucid for GERD but all in all I am getting worse from acidity and bloating, am suffering seriously.
Avatar f tn Smoking while pregnant will: Lower the amount of oxygen and nutrient available your growing baby. Increase your baby's heart rate. Increase the chances of miscarriage and stillbirth. Increase the risk that your baby is born prematurely and/or born with low birth weight. Increase your baby's risk of developing respiratory (lung) problems.
Avatar f tn I was a big smoker also when I found out I was pregnant I stopped at 10 weeks after I stopped a gained alotta weight tho smh I'm not sure what u can do because I went cold turkey but there are support groups u can call and they will help u
Avatar f tn I just recently found out i was pregnant...I'm a habitual user of marijuana and cigs, so it's been really hard to wing off of it. I cut back a lot on cigarettes, haven't smoked a full one since i found out.. but can't seem to as much with mary Jane. Any tips on how to quit without letting it put stress on you and your baby?

Avatar n tn I agree, I think weight gain is preferred to smoking. Congrats on quitting! Also on loosing so much weight before you got pregnant. Whatever you gain now you can loose later. Your weight gain so far probably is on the high side for having started at 197. But if your blood sugar is okay then I would say keep doing what you're doing. You're 28 weeks, so have you gotten your results back from you gestational diabetes test yet? I would use that as a guide.
Avatar n tn Lifestyle choices like excessive smoking, being overweight and avoiding exercise are other possible causes. In such cases quitting smoking, losing excessive weight, and increasing physical activity may help some men regain sexual function. Other serious causes are neurogenic disorder (spinal cord and brain injuries), certain drugs like anti-depressants or nicotine cavernosal disorders, ageing, kidney failure, smoking, and psychological causes.
11970398 tn?1443134602 Quitting cold turkey was the easiest for me. That way you're not hung up on that " oh,it's just 1 more cigarette before bed" ect. Knowing you still have those security cigarettes makes it harder. I quit the very moment I found out I was pregnant. It was hard and I was a total b for a week but after that week hump it got much easier. Best of luck to you.
Avatar f tn Dont panic though just work really hard on quitting. Weed has no proven effect on baby and is prescibed to women with really bad morning in alot of places. So if you want to truely know my opinion...
Avatar f tn Well, hormones are wacky so never say never but it is more likely a rapid weight gain. 20 pounds in 90 days is a lot very quickly. I would up the exercise and try to soothe yourself some way orally so you don't eat (gum, chew on straws, etc.). Congrats on being smoke free! AWESOME!!! That's not easy to do so good for you!
