Yet another reason to kick your cigarette habit. A study found that stopping smoking during pregnancy can increase your chances for a happier and healthier baby.
However, smoking more than 10 cigarettes daily has been linked to more irritable little ones. And researchers from the study found that the babies of heavy smokers scored lowest for mood and were easily distressed.
So if you’re already pregnant (or planning to be), speak with your OB to find ways to safely curb your nicotine cravings. Your body—and beautiful little unborn baby—will thank you.
