i HAVE to tell someone!!


Active member
after 6 months of trying, i took a HPT this morning and...I'm PREGNANT!!

i'm so excited. i'm going to the doctor's today to have it confirmed, but i just know it! my hubby and i want to wait to tell our friends and family, but i don't know if i can keep it a secret! i'm way too stoked!

the only problem i forsee is...i smoke. i'm obviously quitting now that i know i'm having a baby. does anyone have any tips on making it easier to quit?

also, i'm kind of a hypochondriac. now that i'm pregnant, i'm worried that it's too good to be true. i'm worried that i'll lose it. how do i deal with my fears?

I use to smoke and I recently quit and when I had the urge to smoke I would try and chew some gum or some hard candy like Jolly Ranchers. That helped me!

I quit cold turkey. Just knowing that it could hurt the baby made me stop. This girl I know smoked all through both her pregnancies. And the second one she had problems.

Yeh quitting cold turkey isn't as difficult as people make it out to be. If you "want" to quit, you can. The people who have a hard time quitting imho, dont really want to quit. They might know quitting is good for them and their body, but they also enjoy smoking. At least that was my perspective on several friends who tried to quit multiple times.

I quit cold turkey cuz I woke up one day and couldn'tstand the smell on my clothes, my hair, my fingers, etc. Plus the gross taiste in my mouth and when kissing someone.

Congrats on the pregnancy
Your so lucky.

That's wonderful!!! Congrats to you and your spouse

I used to smoke and I quit by using the Nicotine gum but I'm not sure if that is safe when you are expecting. I'd say talk to your doc and they should have some suggestions for you. When you feel like smoking, look at pictures of babies to take your mind off of it

I have no advice on quitting smoking though. I just couldn't/can't do it. I have a skillion reasons/excuses, but none of them are good.

Talk to your doctor about it. And we are here if you have any questions or anything.

Have a very happy and healthy 10 months. (It's not 9!! Somewhere along the line, someone LIED!! lol)

congrats!! i used to smoke too, but when i found out i was preg with my daughter 3 yrs ago, i just went cold turkey. it wasnt easy, but i just thought about the baby and how it wouldnt be right to do that to the fetus. when i really got an urge to smoke, i would chew gum or suck on a lollypop. (or eat!! lol). after a while, i didnt miss the cigarettes. GOOD LUCK!!!

As for quitting smoking, if you can't do it cold turkey, ask your OB for help....best wishes for a happy and healthy pregnancy!
