I'm just 9 weeks and just recently found out I was pregnant, but smoked for the first month after I got pregnant. I've stopped smoking now-but will my baby be harmed?

  I'm just 9 weeks and just recently found out I was pregnant, but smoked for the first month after I got pregnant. I've stopped smoking now-but will my baby be harmed?

It's very unlikely. Smoking in pregnancy-mainly in the second and third trimesters does increase the risk of going into labour early, fetal growth problems and other problems affecting the placenta. So while it is better not to smoke in pregnancy at all, continuing for a few weeks in early pregnacy is not likely to increase the risk of malformations or other problems. Interestingly, smoking BEFORE you get pregnant (not in pregnancy) can reduce your risk of getting pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure) in later pregnancy. Nobody knows quite why.
