I have not been through this, but every pregnancy book I've ever read says not to worry about what you did before you found out you were pregnant because those two weeks aren't a big deal. The most important thing now is to make sure you get on good prenatals -- I'm hoping you already were on some since you were trying to conceive -- and no more drinks for now.
Don't stress about it, I know other girls have been in this situation and it's turned out fine. Focus instead on eating and living healthy now. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I would think you are fine.. At 4 weeks pregnant the major organs have not really started forming yet. It is more dangerous after 4 weeks from everything I have read and heard. Congrats on the pregnancy. You might be scared now.. but when you see the first ultrasounds and hear the heartbeat, its so amazing.
Yes, start a good prenatal and make good choices here on out. Good luck.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 'Blessings' by Laura Story (What if trials of this life, are your mercies in disguise) Glorious Ruins

FAS and FA spectrum disorder don't come from one or two episodes of heavy drinking. While there are widely varying opinions on how much alcohol consumption affects a fetus and the outcome, it's generally agreed that FAS requires relatively heavy drinking. "An analysis of seven medical research studies involving over 130,000 pregnancies found that consuming two to 14 drinks per week did not significantly increase the risk of giving birth to a child with either malformations or fetal alcohol syndrome." (Polygenis, D., et al. Moderate alcohol consumption during pregnancy and the incidence of fetal malformations: a meta-analysis. Neurotoxicol Teralol., 1998, 20, 61–67). The odds are heavily in favor of a normal, healthy baby.
Focus on taking pre-natal vitamins (folic acid is REALLY important in the first trimester to avoid neural tube defects), eating healthy, and exercising and things will be fine with the baby.
Your baby is fine!! I did (too many) shots of tequila 2 days before I found out I was pregnant. My son is a happy, healthy, super smart 19 month old. Stop stressing--it's ridiculous how much fear the medical society puts onto women. The placenta doesn't attach itself to the mother's body until around 10 weeks. FAS is tested only in women who drink heavily throughout their entire pregnancy--because you can't study it any other way. To err on the side of caution medical professionals here just tell you not to drink. Take your prenatals eat a balanced, heavy in organic veggies diet and relax. All is well with your baby.
