I am currently 7 weeks and 6 days pregnant and I smoke every 40 minutes. Will this harm my baby or increase the chances of a miscarriage?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

Smoking during pregnancy can have serious consequences for both you and your baby. It is highly recommended to quit smoking as soon as possible to reduce the risks associated with smoking during pregnancy. Smoking exposes your baby to harmful chemicals, such as nicotine and carbon monoxide, which can restrict oxygen supply and nutrients needed for healthy development. This increases the risk of complications like premature birth, low birth weight, respiratory problems, and even stillbirth. Additionally, smoking increases the likelihood of miscarriage. Quitting smoking is challenging but not impossible. Seek support from healthcare professionals who can provide guidance on quitting strategies tailored to your needs. They may recommend nicotine replacement therapy or other medications that are safe during pregnancy. Remember that quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your own health and the health of your baby.

There is always a risk smoking while pregnant, but many women do. Think of years ago when women didn't know it was a bad thing to smoke while pregnant. I am sure a lot of children were born with no issues. It isn't the best thing to do, but smoking is hard to just up and quit. Good luck!! ❤
