Hello Everyone. I have just found out that I am 9 weeks and 2 days pregnant. The doctor says that the first 2 weeks you arent even pregnant because it dates back to the first day of your last period .. the next 2 weeks is kinda all or nothing so if the baby was damaged it simply wouldnt live. So that leaves me with 5 weeks where I could have harmed my baby and I know I drank once per week at least and twice per week at most so we are talking 10 times of HEAVY drinking likes shots .. and the last time I drank was 2 days in a row over THanksgiving weekend .. this last friday and saturday. I found out MOnday morning. Anyone with similar experiences .. Im so scared and I feel terrible can anyone please tellm eif they had similar experiences and if there babies were ok?

There certainly is some risk, but there have been many, many, many women who have consumed large amounts of alcohol prior to finding out they were pregnant and their babies were just fine. My cousin's ex didn't know she was pregnant until 4 months and she drank a LOT... and her baby was fine.

The important thing now is to take care of yourself (definitely no more drinking now that you know) and relax.

It is the chronic drinking thru the entire pregnancy that causes the most harm. You cannot go back and change anything so just move forward with a healthy lifestyle. You child is going to be exactly how the Lord intended so take a deep breath, forgive yourself and move forward. My mother was told both drink and smoke! The drinking would "calm her nerves" and the smoking would help her "not get too fat". Mama, give yourself a break and be excited and enjoy the new journey!

You'll be fine. A lot of women don't know they are pregnant and drink a lot in the first couple of months.

11 years old daughter, perfectly fine with some allergies. Did not knew I was pregnant and visited two birthdays back then, still something felt strange and had a half of quantity from usual. Also felt quilty and worried. After childs birth turned non-alcoholic.
