I had quite a bit of alcohol the day before I found out I was pregnant.
So I was about 4 weeks 4 days pregnant when I drank.
Is this going to hurt my pregnancy and baby?
I'm so excited about being pregnant for the first time
but now I'm really scared and nervous that drinkin so much
at 4 weeks before I knew that this will hurt my baby.
Does anyone know?

I've heard a lot of women in a similar situation and they had normal, healthy pregnancies and babies!

Congrats and have a H&H 9 months!

I drank back in June and I got pregnant in the beginning of June and didn't know I was.

With my son I got pregnant in July and drank at the end of July, not knowing. My kids are fine. Maybe ask your doctor

I just stumbled across your post - I drank, smoked, and ate sushi the week before I found out I was pg. Baby's fine. Ask your doc for reassurance, but you should be okay!

Apparently I got pregnant in early July. I went on vacation for two weeks in August where I drank my face off. Found out at the end of August that I was preggo...

I'm now nearly 20 weeks and so far everything is going great!!!

I know lots of people who found out late and drank, smoked weed, cigarettes, etc. and their babies are perfect fine.

Don't sweat it!! I"m sure your baby is great!!

Oh hun, don't worry! I drank, smoked weed, ate sushi, etc. for the first almost 6 weeks of this pregnancy! I didn't know I was pregnant because I wasn't trying and after I found out I stopped but before that I did alot of bad things. This baby is perfectly healthy!

Just from here on out try to eat healthy and stay away from that kind of stuff now!

I was drinking quite a bit until the 7th week of my pregnancy because I didn't know I was pregnant. My doctor told me the baby would be fine especially since it was the beginning of the pregnancy, not when the baby is feeding from what you eat or drink just yet.

I hope you are doing ok. I am actually in the exact same boat and I feel terrible too. The exact same emotions you are having - excited and nervous all at the same time. I just found out...how are you doing now? I hope your doctor was able to put your mind at ease, I wasn't able to get in for another week so I'm freaking out until then.

I didn't find out until I was five weeks along and I did quite a bit of drinking during that time. So far everything is fine, my ultrasound looks great. I don't think that I will completely reassured until she's in my arms though.

Thank you MommaDucks for the AMAZING siggy!
