If I stop smoking by the 6 month of my pregnancy is the baby going to be deformed?

If I stop smoking by the 6 month of my pregnancy is the baby going to be deformed?

Great choice: The primary effect of your smoking during pregnancy is in decreasing babies size at birth, not causing deformities. The delicate blood vessels of the placenta can shrink some from nicotine & provide less nutrition to baby over all. By stopping, the placenta may become more effective & be ready for the stress of labor. Quitting will have great benefits for you and baby so good luck. ...Read more

I've smoked marijuana a lot for the past 4 years but i want to get pregnant. Would it be better to stop smoking? Marijuana decrease chance of pregnancy?

I've smoked marijuana a lot for the past 4 years but i want to get pregnant. Would it be better to stop smoking? Marijuana decrease chance of pregnancy?
