Im freaking out and just need advice from people that have been through this. When I found out I was pregnant recently, two days after missed period, I was really scared because I drank alcohol several times between last menstrual period and finding out about pregnancy, including drinking two-three drinks on 2 occassions. The drinking took place between days 10-17 of pregnancy and nothing was drank after that. Could I have caused fetal damage?

Hello, all i got to say is i think that you are fine. I drank a whole bottle of wine a week before i found out i was pregnant which had to be around the sametime in the pregnancy has you and my little guy is fine. I had a healty baby boy last june. But if you are very worried just talk to your dr when you see them for the 1st appt just to resure yourself. But i think you and your little bean should be fine. Congrats!!!

I drank, with both of my kids, before I knew I was pregnant and they're both happy and healthy! I'm sure you're fine!

Nope. I've never had an alcoholic drink before, though.

I felt awful about this, but New Years eve 2008 I had taken a pregnancy test and came back negative. A pregnancy wasn't in our plans at the time so we were excited that we had dodged the bullet. We celebrated that New Years and I had a bit too much to drink. Fast forward a week I had a gyno appointment for a pap smear. The day before that I decided to take the other pregnancy test that had came in the package on a whim because I figured it'd come back negative anyway. NO!!! Big fat positive. I felt so bad and was frantic because I always hear about how they don't know how much alcohol consumed during pregnancy could cause fetal alcohol syndrome. Didn't help I was in my OB/Peds rotation of nursing school and heard the same old line yet again about alcohol during pregnancy. Even got to see a baby in the nursery with FAS. It made me upset, but I'm not a huge drinker. I had only celebrated that one day and stopped beating myself up over it. I gave birth to a healthy little girl 9/3/08. So just ease your mind. Things are most likely fine.

Drunk wine the day before i found out i was preggo but i am no fan of alcohol anyway so i never drink much. I don't think you have a problem though. Never touched it again until she was born and everything was ok
