No tips but I’ll admit I vaped through pregnancy. I wish I had been stronger but I wasn’t. Luckily DD is totally fine and healthy .
Maybe just try cutting down on the vape, like just have a couple puffs every so often ?
Hope you find a solution.

I’m 27 weeks. Swapped to a vape in week 8. Down from 20 fags a day to 6mg nicotine vape. Personally don’t see a problem and will continue to vape. Midwifes haven’t lectured me so I’m gonna carry on. May drop to 3mg later on but not sure yet.

Hi ladies , my partner works for a vape company & is a certified stop smoking practitioner

He's assured me it's safe to vape throughout pregnancy. Much better than smoking

When I told my midwife I hadn't had a cigarette since I found out & vaped instead , she said this was the healthiest option behind not vaping all together & was happy with this

Hope this puts your mind at rest Smile

Thank you everyone. I still would love to stop as I hate the addiction

You guys are so brave telling the midwife about it, I daren't

@EllaWt I think I just wanted a well done off her Hahha
20 a day for over 10 years I wanted some recognition cos some people don't understand going cold turkey

@kirstenn123 very well done!!! Whoo!!! It took me ages to quit smoking, i still miss it every single day and I was smoking less than 10 a day so very many congratulations on your efforts!! Now to kicking the vaping habit (here's hoping Blush)

@EllaWt how many weeks are you?
I used to vape (a lot) but stopped the day I found out. The first couple of weeks, I was really craving it and it was tough. I had to keep busy and change my habits. I dumped my vape and all the juices. Then the nausea kicked in , around week 6 I think, and the thought of vaping made me sick..
