Default Anyone born to a smoking mother become obese?

My mother smoked while she was pregnant with all 3 of her children. Back in the 60's it wasn't a big deal. She also did not nurse us, which was kind of a fad back then as well.

So, I was born a nicotine baby, addicted at birth. Since she didn't breast feed, I didn't get my fix as a baby. I was very colicky, and cried for a bottle continually according to my mother. Of course, I was just a little pig in her eyes, but I somehow think I was trying to feed my addiction to nicotine. Once I was old enough to feed on my own, I sought out sugary carbs and continued on my path of addiction. Anyone else an obese product of a smoking mother? Just curious if there is a connection.
