Since I've never been pregnant, and don't wish to have children of my own, I have always been relieved at the thought that I will be spared the situation that you found yourself in - being a smoker and learning that you are pregnant.
If you'd be willing to say anything more about this, I'd be very interested to know what sorts of thoughts and feelings you had during your pregnancy while you continued to smoke.
I promise you that you won't get any criticism from me, and as the moderator of this forum, I will also promise you that I won't allow anyone here to criticize you either.
Thanks in advance for whatever perspective you might be able to offer on this experience, Jacki.
