I'm 11 weeks pregnant. I 28 yrs old.i didn't know. I have been drinking heavily. Like a pint of vodka daily.I'm considering abortion. Because I think I have harmed the baby. I don't want an abortion. I also don't want to bring a life andfor thebaby to suffer. Has any one been in this situation and the baby is fine? As long as I stop drinking now will my baby be normal? Is there test they can run to make sure there is no deformalities?

I say go get checked. I never knew I was pregnant until I was 4 months pregnant. I had been drinking and smoking and I just had a horrible diet. Overall, what I had been doing was bad. I struggled to quit smoking and didn't really stop til just a month and a half ago. The baby is completely healthy now. Everything is normal. She has a perfect heartbeat, she's big, and she's always kicking :) I'm 32 weeks pregnant now :)

If you stop now, you should be ok, and baby should be fine, as well. Just be aware that there may be symptoms that appear later.

I don't know if there's a specific test they can run, but it's worth checking into.

Best of luck :)

maybe get a scan first make sure everything looks fine it can be harmful but if you stop now it should/could be ok and instead of abortion how about adoption i drank for the first 5 weeks of my pregnancy and everything turned out ok good luck
