As much as they say ANY drinking can cause FAS, there are soooo many woman who drank before knowing they were preggers. I myself, think I got pregnant while I was hammered one night at my cousin's wedding ...lol I wouldn't worry too much about it, but the best person to bring you that peace of mind will be your doctor. Make it one of your first questions, and you'll see how quickly you'll feel better about it.
CONGRATS ON YOUR BEANER!!

I also had barely conceived around the New Year's Eve mark, got trashed that night, then a few weeks after that. I asked my doctor and he said as long as I had stopped drinking, that those two times wouldn't affect the baby. But of course, like everyone else has said, for the extra reassurance ask your doc!

i went on a three-day binge right before i found out i was pregnant this time and my doc said she'd be fine. they used to prescribe alcohol to women in preterm labor- like my grandma, and all five of her kids turned out fine (although the one is an alcoholic now)

Your little person should be fine. I got pregnant when I was really drunk, not just buzzed but drunk. It was a going away party for some of my mates co workers. My little girl's okay.

I didn't know I was pregnant till I was eight and a half weeks along, so I had quite a few drinking binges in that time... but Joshua looks healthy, so I'm not too worried about it. I stopped drinking immediately after I found out, so I'm pretty sure he's fine. True, it's in my mind, but I try not to let it get to me.

I had two days of drinking before I found out I was pregnant and I when I asked my doctor about it, he told me that if it isn't an every day occurance you should be just fine. He also said that during the two-three weeks that you are prego but don't know it yet, anything that you consume (medicines/alcohol) will either terminate the pregnancy or have no effect at all. Don't stress about it, the stress will be worse for the baby then the drinking binges.

I think you'll be fine, I did more than just drink before I found out I was pregnant...drugs and stuff, but obviously I stopped once I found out and my baby's just fine....He's actually big for his gestational age and constantly kicking the crap out of me! I think you're fine, just try not to stress about it...stress is bad for the baby!
