If you have been in my position, PLEASE share your story. I am very scared and don't know what to do.
I was not planning on getting pregnant. Although I am usually just a social drinker, I had a wild weekend in which I (1) drank two bottles of wine BY MYSELF in ONE NIGHT; and (2) continued to drink off and on (beer and wine) the remaining days of the weekend.
On Monday morning, I realized that my period was late by a day. I took a pregnancy test and it was positive.
I have been to my doctor, and it turns out that my big drinking weekend happened when I was four weeks pregnant. Essentially, I was drinking heavily from four weeks to four weeks and two days into the pregnancy.
What can I do?? Has anyone else ever been through this and kept the pregnancy going? Everything I read about fetal alcohol damage is absolutely terrifying. I will never drink again, have no desire to after this. Please, anyone??
