Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I don't think a little will hurt but I wouldn't risk it. But then again, any kind of smoke bothers me.
it's fine, just don't sit or stand close to it. there are millions of pregnant women that smoke cigarettes, and most of the time, their babies come out just fine. i know a girl that smoked a pack a day throughout her pregnancy, and her baby was 9 lbs at birth. healthy as a horse. i'm not advocating this by any means.  it's a mother's choice, but not a healthy one.
