In brief: Please don't smoke.

Tobacco smoke is never considered safe for the smoker, for the fetus, for the newborn or other children, for anyone nearby.
Kids need healthy lungs and healthy parents: http://www.Cdc.Gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fact_sheets/health_effects/tobacco_related_mortality/index.Htm#women.
