I'm so scared my baby might have FSA. I always thought that I'd be aborting my pregnancy but I decide last minute that I couldn't go through with it. Now I'm scared my baby will have FDA. I've been binge drinking through my 1st and now my 2nd trimester. Please someone give me hope.

I already live a SUPER healthy lifestyle. Workout 5 days a week, eat a very healthy diet so I hope that will go in my favor. I of course stopped drinking, that wasn't a problem.
I have an appointment on Friday so I'm excited to see him/her and what the doctor says.

Check with your dr. regarding what's going on with the baby & you. Stay well conected with appointments & checkups this will keep you informed. Definitely stop drinking!!! They may require some changes in where you go & people you may hang around. You can be healthy but you have to want to be healthy. I believe you can stop drinking & have a healthy baby Now u have to believe it :)

Wow that must be a lot of guilt you are carrying....I think a lot of mothers kick themselves and find fault in themselves for anything that goes wrong with their children. I want to blame myself for my son’s epilepsy but I realize that I can’t do that to myself or to my son.
Take your child as they are embrace all of the imperfections, realize that you will have to fight and struggle but in the end things will work out.
Hope, faith and unconditional love…
Felling guilty will not resolve the problems or make the situation any better nor will you be able to move forward.
Simply said…take the energy from guilt and put it towards resolution and progress!!!
Best to you and your child
