Drank excessively before I knew I was pregnant, HELP

In a perfect world, I would have known I was pregnant right off the bat. But I didn't. I miscarried in mid April and had the miscarriage confirmed on May 4th. This was my second miscarriage and I handled it poorly, drinking a 12 pack of Keystone the following night and then going on a bender that weekend as well. It was bad. I drank either a 12 pack or a bottle of wine about 3 times during the 2 weeks days after finding out I miscarried. I took a test on the 13th of May and it was negative. So I drank that weekend as well. Well, just for fun I took a test on the 16th and IT WAS POSITIVE! I got a blood test done a few weeks ago, which put me at approximately 4 weeks along when I was getting stupid drunk.

From what I understand, your baby's brain and nervous system develops around 4 weeks. I don't think I could have picked a worse time to get so so drunk.

Now I'm worried beyond belief. If I had known I would get pregnant RIGHT AFTER I miscarried then I would NOT have drank at all! I'm so worried that I may have caused permanent brain damage and my child is going to have so many problems because of me and I had no idea that I was pregnant. HELP!!!!
